I was recently fortunate enough to be asked along to the Wayside Flower look book shoot featuring a collection of clothing by the brand Norsea.
Norsea clothing produces beautifully designed and mainly put together by the highly talented Steve who has spent 20 years in the industry working for top British labels and a further 6 years at college learning the art of fabric and such skills as pattern cutting, enabling him to developing his own brand which has allowed him to work from home in his studio. Each garment can take up to 3 or more days to produce.
Certain pieces of Steve's work are influenced by the fishing industry which is such a big part of the village he was raised, Flamborough. My favourites where the pure wool handmade Gansy’s, the original type of fisherman's jumper which has distinctive cabling and design for different regions. Traditionally these regional jumpers were earned, not bought so we are fortunate in that there’s a supplier of these unusual and somewhat rare garment.
Everyone working hard.
Thankfully the weather wasn't on top form on the day of the shoot as it was done in the middle of summer and we needed it to be overcast to suit the english sea themed shoot, for once the weather did what it was supposed to do. After 5 hours of a great shoot I was definitely ready for some food and cuppa.
Loved these personalised russian dolls so much I had to take a picture, how unique are these little guys?
Thank you to Wayside Flower for having me and Walker & Walker for letting me share their space.
