This picture is part of a fashion editorial I shot on Wimbledon Common last spring. I grew up near the Common and still walk my dog there most mornings. Throughout the summer I watched the drought change lush greenery into a parched dry landscape and the pond to a small watering hole, as 2022 turned into the hottest year on record.

This year is predicted to be even hotter and Extinction Rebellion are joining with other organisations, movements and individuals in The Big One A super-sized peaceful protest (no glue or padlocks) demanding our government act now in tackling the climate emergency.

Meanwhile here is the rest of the fashion story. Ironically we used Photoshop to change the lush greenery to look more like the last days of summer. I don’t know if there are any fish in Rushmere pond. Ours was from Waitrose.
