We went down to the Worx studios in South West London’s Parsons Green to get a behind-the-scenes glimpse of two of our latest photo shoots. As one of the biggest trends of the season, we mix and matched our favourite layering items, and give you the perfect winter wedding guest ensembles, filled with embellishments, beads and all that sparkles. Here’s a sneak peek:
From a selection of some of our favourite brands, expect key on-trend pieces for AW16 such as metallic footwear, shearling textures and comfortable co-ords.
With pyjama dressing still positioning itself as a key trend for this transitional season, we show you how it can work as the perfect layering piece. Our Fashion Editor tells us, “Pyjama dressing works for winter with a polo neck underneath and a leather jack draped over the shoulders.” Here’s how it’s done:

After a quick makeup touch up, hair change and a spot of well-needed lunch, we got underway with our winter wedding guest shoot:

Meet the model…
Whilst on set, we caught up our picture-perfect model for the day:
Name: Shaynue Ding
When did you get scouted?
I started modelling when I was 14, but did get scouted when I was a lot younger, at places like The Clothes Show and on the streets.
What’s your biggest career highlight so far?
Probably shooting an Armani fragrance video. It was on a motorbike filmed in Majorca and I had a body double, so that was pretty cool.
What model do you aspire to the most?
I’d say Karlie Kloss. I like models that do something outside of modelling, like Karlie’s Kookies business which is also a charity providing meals for children.
Where would we find you hanging out in London?
I normally hang out in North London – around the Belsize Park, Primrose Hill area.
Favourite spot for dinner?
Trishna! One of my favourite yummy places for the perfect Indian food.
How would you describe your style?
Comfortable and classic. I love to layer to keep warm, especially in these autumn months!
Favourite brand at Debenhams?
Preen/Edition – It’s probably my most shopped brand, as it’s boho and feminine but also really cool.
If you weren’t a model, what would you be doing with your life?
I’d like to get involved in the pharmaceutical industry, as I studied natural sciences at Cambridge, so that’s another huge passion of mine.

It wouldn’t be a shoot without some behind the scenes fun now, would it?
