"You're Never Too Old To Be Photographed In Your Underwear"

Friday Mar 18 2016

We were extremely honoured to dress Elisabeth Dale of The Breast Life blog in exclusively Harlow & Fox designs for our recent collaborative lingerie tea party shoot in New York. 

Part of the reason behind the project was to show a diversity of women not usually found in mainstream fashion or lingerie advertising, and celebrate that lingerie is for everyone to enjoy - as well as celebrate the beauty of all of the different ways we are. Women over a "certain age" are too often excluded from any imagery that isn't about coverage, and looking younger, and attempting to hide and reverse all of the signs of a happy and fulfilled life. It was a wonderful experience shooting with Elisabeth, who will soon be 60, and we loved reading more of her insight into how it felt to be in front of the camera, and out of her comfort zone, which you can read in full over on her blog
