I was waitressing at the comedy club and some men were complaining about the acts, one of them asked if I could tell a joke, I replied "I can't do that, but I can tell you something funny ... I'm from Essex".
For my final project of the year I decided to do something slightly different to my usual work, I am still unsure if this was a good decision in terms of grade chasing, however it was something I had to do whilst my home is still Essex.
With the images I decided to shoot in several different ways, not leaving enough time to finalise the style, so the series is a little mismatched. I wanted to portray the stereotypical image of the Essex girl, leaving out the identities of the models I used. The work is my response to the publicity from 'The Only Way is Essex' and has been minimally edited. There was a lot of 'fake' fake tan applied to my models who were brilliant throughout. There are several other images I have shot for the project that I will be featuring on my fashion club and under other sections of my website, so watch out for further updates.
