A few weeks ago we gathered a few of our amazing friends and dressed them in the Backburn collection for the first of our Lex's Ladies series. We want to use these series to show how others style and adapt the collections to suit their personal style, as well as showcasing the clothing on body shapes beyond the usual model type. Our great friend and collaborator Hellene Algie joined us to capture the shots below.
Tamara is a ceramic artist and burlesque performer, whose feminine and simple style translates easily into Backburn pieces. Tamara wears the Before the Fire Skirt in size 12, and the Before the Fire Tunic top in size 10.
She says -
"The Backburn collection is not just beautiful but also comfortable! I could wear it all day and into the night, the fabric feels so lush against the skin and I love knowing that it's ethically made."
Miela is a fashion student, who has experience in the world of professional models. With her youthful style, her look is a statement outfit for a big night out. We paired our Before the Fire Pants in size 12 with the Firebreak top in size 10.
She says -
"Not only do the prints of alexis, eclectic's Blackburn collection have a stunning graphic quality, but to me tell a conceptual story about regeneration and resilience. They are beautiful inside and out."
