At Darkest Star we’re lucky to know Alice, a singer / song writer from Hertfordshire, she’s unique, talented and incredibly sexy … so of course we wanted to shoot her in our studio.
It was just a test shoot, to see how she reacts in front of the camera as she's naturally quite shy, but what evolved was an honest and inspirational couple of hours.
Being previously inspired by iconic photographer Ruth Bernhard we toyed around with using Silk Georgette, the inspiration for our very first bondage scarf. The transparent quality, so beautiful against the skin yet surprisingly tough.
True art stands the test of time .... these images were shot in the 1930's.
Bernhard (1905 - 2006) was a German-born American photographer who was known for her black and white studio work. Predominantly working with female nudes she created abstract shapes and sculptural masses using composition, light, and shadow.
This image ( below ) is one of my favourites, it was taken in 1947 and has been the source of inspiration for many photographers ever since. It can easily sit on any contemporary platform and still be current.
Styled simply, wearing our Tailored Collar Bondage Dress , Andy D’Cruze the other half of Darkest Star and contemporary ‘Image Maker’ captured some alluring portraits and a three image story inspired by Bernhard using our silk georgette dress.

Alice is know for the beautiful quality of her voice, likened to some of the all time greats she's destined for equal success. Some exciting projects are in the pipeline which I'm sure to keep you posted.
Until next time.......
Always a Pleasure
