Behind the scenes at the Good Housekeeping photoshoot – Dress code : Fabulous

Before I started Susu I was a stylist for many years and made a lot of contacts in the fashion industry. I was delighted when Jo the Deputy Fashion Editor at Good Housekeeping contacted me and asked if I wanted to take part in a story on summer special occasion wear called Dress code : Fabulous. It didn’t take me long to say yes!

On the day of the shoot my call time was 9am, so I caught an early train into London carrying a large Susu bag full of outfits I thought would fit the bill. A waiting car at Kings Cross whisked me off to the Hoxton studio where it was straight into hair and make up (always a treat!).

When Jo and Angela, who were styling the shoot, arrived we decided that our Eleanora Amadei coat would be a perfect base to build the outfit around.

Jo then interviewed me for the article asking for hints and tips on how to put a stylish outfit together for a variety of summer special occasions and then it was time to meet the photographer.

The actual photoshoot lasted about twenty minutes and I was more than ready for a spot of lunch and the opportunity to catch up with old friends who were also appearing in the feature.


Two months later the June issue dropped onto my doormat. I’m delighted with the spread, and look forward to hearing our customers’ feedback. To read the full article please CLICK HERE.
