Dismilland

















Jumper: Camden Market, Jeans: New Look, Shoes: H&M
When people mention the North of England what is often brought to mind is industrial towns, coal mining villages, and how with the decline of these industries the North has been left with these derelict towns and buildings, grey, rundown and unused. And all this is true. But what many people don't see is the beauty in some of these buildings, and particularly the mills of Yorkshire. Some of these outstanding buildings have been used, converted into homes and offices, but some, some have just been left. Driving around the Yorkshire town where my grandparents live I saw some of these once glorious and bustling buildings, being held up by bits of scaffolding, with peeling paint and broken windows.

To me, these buildings are still beautiful, not only do they represent the livelihood and history of these Northern towns, but they also represent grandeur, and possibility for the future. And truthfully, as a blogger, they provide the perfect backdrop for a photoshoot.

I wanted to show that these buildings could still be beautiful, to create some magic and wonder, just like how Banksy created an attraction all about horrible, and well dismal things. So therefore it was only appropriate to wear my Banksy print jumper, which I recently picked up from Camden Market. The girl with the red balloons is one of my favourite works by Banksy, and paired with some jeans and a collection of red balloons made for a rather fun, if awkward, photo shoot.
