Elizabeth

It was a rainy, dull day on Saturday. I thought that my camera would not be able to capture Elizabeth's beautiful colours but I was wrong. Elizabeth is so photogenic she would shine under any circumstances. I met her at the local library but I wanted to do the photo shoot outside, regardless of the heavy rain. We ran towards the nearest building looking for cover and that's were I took her pictures, in the base of these alien looking tall tower blocks that surround Kennington Park.

It was fun photographing Elizabeth; I also had the chance to have a small chat with her about style, fashion and afro-textured hair. The following is part of what we talked about:

"My style is a girly and urban mix.  I will often wear long and fitted maxi skirts in many colours. I buy most of my clothes from Magenta, which is in Lewisham, or Primark or TK Max.  One of my best fashion designers is Stella McCartney because in her clothes she fuses sporty with womanly shapes, like putting long and short dresses together. I also like Victoria Beckam. My inspiration comes from me and my environment; what I see in the magazines and from other people. I believe London has one of the best crowds of stylish people. We mix edgy, urban and chic kind of fashion styles. Every one loves London style; people come from everywhere to shop here. My favourite accessory is head bands. I always have my hair up, because it is fun and makes me feel free. My hair is curly, coarse and thick but I would prefer a different texture and more flow. "
