From Fashionistable
When I saw Dawn I thought she looked amazing, I loved her Sweater/Cape. When I eventually caught up with her and started to chat I had a very strong feeling we had met before. She felt the same. I had a look through my archive when I got back home and yes we had. You can see our first encounter here. Dawn is now the commercial director for Horiyoshi the Third, who is a world renown tattoo artist and designer. The wonderful cape sweater Dawn is wearing is one of his designs. She told me his collections are now available in Browns, Harvey Nichols and Matches. When I asked what influenced her own style, she said happiness plays a large part and allows her to have a different style every day. Her surprise was that she has an cherry blossom tattoo on her back that Horiyoshi created for her. I would love to see it. That would make a great third image of her don't you think? An nice studio back shot. As I only interview the people I photograph after I have photographed them I didn't know Dawn's story until then. As is turns out I was very lucky with the choice of background for the shot as it incorporates two popular art forms.
Apart from the Cape/Sweater Dawn is wearing trousers by JBrand, her bag is her mums and is a Mappin and Webb (however looking at the link I think I may have gotten that wrong.....), Valentino sunglasses and shoes by Rupert Sanderson.
