Sustainable fashion stylist Sarah Kate Byrne teamed up with London-based fashion brand Eponine, known for their slow fashion approach and use of up-cycled fabrics to showcase some of their most iconic bespoke dresses alongside two of their new ready-to-wear pieces. Renowned Devon based photographer Hazel Mansell Greenwood captured each of the 6 unique looks against equally unique backdrops on Dartmoor.
Sarah chose to pair the 6 dresses with vintage jewellery & accessories from Emma Caderni Vintage, a force in the vintage world for more than 30 years and whose unique eye has attracted Lulu Guinness to launch a recent collaboration.
Sarah also selected hand-made millinery pieces from Rachel Trevor-Morgan’s St James’s atelier to compliment some of the looks, showing how a day dress can be dressed up with a beautiful headpiece or a standout look can be created with the right millinery pairing. Sarah’s passion for sustainable fashion & supporting small businesses is even more pertinent in the current climate so flexing her styling skills to mix & match contemporary & secondhand fashion and to team up complimentary brands & entrepreneurial women was a dream styling job.
