We did it! Our first ever interiors photoshoot - and it was brilliant!
Little Deer friend and stylist Antonia Mckenzie travelled to the location with us in our van where we met Photographer Rachel Manns and her assistant Martin. Our good friend and previous Little Deer photographer, Dale Weeks also met us on location to shoot behind the scenes - it was a dream team!
Located in Hastings right next to the sea - the apartment we shot in worked perfectly - with a balcony looking right over the beach.
We can't wait to share the final images with you ...watch this space!

We first met Leila (founder of Waking Grey) last summer at Wilderness Festival. I instantly fell in love with Leila's style and branding for Waking Grey. The stall looked amazing, really really amazing.
It's hard to make a stall look good at a festival. You're faced with seriously uneven ground and possible mud. Traders are given a small empty space to display their goods and you have to come up with something functional and aesthetically pleasing sometimes in as little as half a day. Leila styled the space with white rails, a statement rug and homely details such as a chair and a few green plants.
Fast forward 5 months on and Leila and I have worked together for the first time. Hand picking a unique and beautiful collection of Vintage Clothing for Little Deer.
We spoke to Leila about where Waking Grey all began:
One thing that stands out for me is that collection after collection each piece is so special. Leila doesn't create a collection with a couple of 'statement' pieces and then just a ton of fillers - each and every garment is hand picked and sits well next to the one before. We asked Leila how she gets inspired to curate the perfect collections:
Finally we were keen to know what Leila's favourite piece from the Waking Grey collection at The Little Deer was:
The mustard silk shirt, it's so simple but a really great transitional item, delicate enough to wear on its own, or great layered up over a simple tee with some boyfriend jeans for a more casual look.
