With the recent demise of the ‘traditional’ glossy magazine, I am grateful for independent publications like RakesProgress, and photography awards such as the JMC, as important spaces for photographers and other creatives to showcase personal projects.

Many thanks again for taking the time to look and read.

I last photographed Kate Orr in the noughties. Together with Jo Bell we worked on editorial and advertising assignments both here and abroad. I’ll retrieve some of these from my archive to share here in the coming weeks.

And in case you’re not familiar with rakesrogress magazine, it is a most beautifully crafted & inspiring independent print publication dedicated to ‘the art of gardens, plants and flowers’.

Thanks for stopping by.

This is Kate Orr wearing the grey dress, or as she calls it “the brown dress”.

My lovely spotty brown dress caught my eye in Primark and became a staple item for castings back in the day. I seem to remember a few of us (models) had that dress at castings. Nobody minded, we all wore it differently. I kept my dress for about 10 years and wore it a lot. It was still good to go when I sent it to the charity shop. I have a few key items in my wardrobe that I have had for over 10 years, and I still wear today.”

Many thanks to supermodel Kate Orr. Hair & makeup by Dina at Frank Agency. Styling by Kate Orr and Sophie Kenningham at Frank Agency. Photo Assisting by Julie Stewart. Extra special thanks to Art Director Jo Bell. Photography by me Wendy Carrig at A&R Creative agency.

This grey dress was bought from a charity shop and shows a ‘made in Spain’ Primark label. But #whereismyfabricfrom and #whomademyclothes? Any clues?

No new clothes were purchased in the production of this photoshoot.
