On a Dark and Dismal Eve...

We couldn't resist sharing some of these beautiful shots we captured for our Autumn/Winter 2012-13 photoshoot this year, aren't they stunning? We had the honour of working with a fantastic photographer and models and got some great images of our brown and black striped steampunk inspired range!

You can see the full range as ever over at our facebook page, check out the Autumn/Winter 2012-13 folder for pictures of the new stuff!! But before you go, feast your eyes on these lovelies! 

Maya dress worn with stylists own fishnet tights as sleeves.

We loved styling this range, and thing it works so well with a steampunk top hat and those ripped fishnets just give it a bit of a punky twist, keeping the look fresh and exciting!

We love the dark mood of these last couple of captures, Victoriana meets steampunk. Just gorgeous.

Autumn/Winter 2012-13 collection!

So, we know you've all be waiting with baited breath for the new Spin Doctor collection!! 
We've started to unveil it in all it's neoVictorian, Steampunk and gothic wonder over at the facebook page, and here's the first instalment!!
Following on from the popularity of some of last winter's shirts, we have the Cardinal shirt, with back lacing detail to cinch in the waist at the back, black ribbon and lace details on the bust and sleeves, pintucking on the bust, covered buttons, puff to love this one!!

Next up is the beautiful 30's inspired Ariana dress, with black lace mesh detail (double layered) and gathered mesh over the centre of the dress and sleeves, stunning open back fastening with a button and zip and bow detail. Such a great dress for a special occasion or party.

We loved the Ariana dress so much, we also made a skirt in the same style. Looks beautiful with the Cardinal shirt, or add your own top for a different style.Made from an easy to wear, stretch mesh and lining fabric, with gathered mesh at the centre back and front of the skirt. Cute bow detail to finish the back.

Behind the scenes-Autumn/Winter 2012-13

We've been really busy here at Spin Doctor, getting ready for Autumn/Winter 2012-13.  If you're wondering why we're thinking about autumn already, then you might be surprised to learn, we were preparing for this autumn, around a year ago.
We start to work on Spin Doctor collections a year in advance of the time they hit the shops. It's a long and rewarding process, and the photoshoot is the last step before we get on the road and start showing the collection to our stockists.
The photoshoot has grown in recent years to include a large team, including stylists, hair stylists, make up artists, photographers and assistants, as well as the Spin Doctor team. The shoots are long days for everyone involved, but the end result is always exciting after a year of developing the collection!!
This time at Spin Doctor, we took a new direction for the collection from previous seasons, and we hope you'll all be excited with the results! Here's a few sneak peeks of what's to come!  

Spin Doctor crop top anyone ;) Shooting the skirts always requires a cropped shot to show the skirt alone, so the models end up having some dubious fashion statements while we capture this!!

We know you're all going to love the Sherlock stripes collection, can't be giving it away though just yet, here's a cheeky picture of our model getting some last minute adjustments.

Oo...thanks Jason, nearly gave that one away !!
