Black and White Movies ~ Z-Mode’s Glamorous New Autumn/Winter 2012 Collection…

Hello my loves ;)  If you follow the Love My Dress Facebook page, you might have noticed last night that I posted some of these images asking if anyone recognised the model below?

There were a few wrong replies but then someone recognised who it was – she was to be spotted on a certain TV programme last year that followed the lives of the rich and privileged living in a certain borough in London 🙂 Answers in the comments box below please! {or you can cheat and visit Facebook or the credit list at the end hehehe!}.

These wonderful images represent the new Autumn/Winter collection from independent fashion design label Z-Mode, who was inspired by the glamour of old black and white movies.  The photographs were shot by the equally wonderful Natalie J Watts – I'm a big fan of Natalie's work, and recently interviewed her as party of my Inspirational Women in Business series.

I love the styling in these images, and how the model is channeling her best elegant 20's meets foxy 60's look – that mini dress in white would make a delightful wedding dress for those blessed with fabulous pins would it not?

Z-mode is a contemporary ladies wear fashion label created by Lithuanian born Victoria Rangayah. Victoriaʼs debut Spring/Summer 2011 collection launched during London Fashion Week focuses on dresses and contemporary tailoring leading towards an ethical fashion.

z-mode's first introduction to shoelace re-cycling was well received therefore she has decided to cary on and introduce more aspects of sustainable fashion in her future designs.

I love this shot. I've a thing for those old movie style lights below – we sourced and used some at the Love My Dress Summer Soiree last year – they really helped set the scene…
