Heaven’s Inferno

A series directed by stylist and designer Ellie Walker, whose practise is rooted in sustainability, hugely influenced by Magic and Folklore.

Shot in the style of a high school prom with a Neo-Gothic Renaissance twist, “Heaven’s Inferno” was inspired by the themes of heaven and hell, where the angels & demons have come out in all their finery for the ball. The soft, playful and nostalgic atmospheres are achieved by the work of analog photographer Anna Nygard.

The project aims to showcase the designs of 8 young sustainable designers from London, that work with unique materials in a creative way. Dhammit Tat was the first inspirational designer selected; she uses old band t-shirts to create traditional boned corsets, which is a conflicting and powerful modern emblem.

I’m interested in creating other worlds and low fi fantasy scenes using found materials and whatever is at hand. I like to be spontaneous and find an honest flow with whoever I’m working with.
