Extreme Modelling Experience presents
For London Fashion Week
EME is the brainchild of K Anthony that offers clients
the experience of being part of a bespoke art piece
through an Extreme Modelling Experience. K’s
inspiration came from realizing that capturing ‘real
life’ moments of artistic expression can expand the
photo shoot experience. Our Extreme Modelling
Experience will transform the client into the integral
creation of the unique art piece.
K’s team of professionals have collective experience
in film, TV, theatre and fashion. Their central aim is
always, and above all, client satisfaction; no, delight!
Their joint skill set enables them to work together as
a team to produce creative art with the client as the
centrepiece. All this is achieved in a fun, friendly
The group shots are designed to make the client part
of a piece of art. We also include individual portrait
shots as well as “behind the scenes” in
which the client can take centre stage and freely
express their personality.
Additionally, they have valued support staff on hand
providing hospitality and catering to ensure that the
client’s experience leaves them feeling rejuvenated
and looking stunning.
Each event is designed to produce the most
unforgettable experience possible, provided by our
professionally qualified team. The client becomes
part of team for that day - a vital part!
Each experience includes a sumptuous lunch with a
wide selection of refreshments. Additionally, clients
are invited to a private exhibition where they can
view their art with friends and family.
In consultation with the client, EME will provide
experiences based on carefully selected themes.
There are always four available themes to
“experience” and they are updated in rotation.

for those who want to express individuality and those
who dare to be different. It is for free spirits, those who
rebel against convention and refuse to be constrained.
"I've never been one to fit in and follow trends,
sometimes I think I was born in the wrong time. I
embrace my wild side, with rainbow hair, striking clothes
and a want to be different. Everything I create is me and
it’s my goal to share that with the world."

Cupid’s Diary, by Nadine and Lynda
As you can imagine, this theme is about love and the
ways in which it is communicated. This interpretation
involved inviting attendees of ‘Eclectic Evolution’ to
write their love notes on the walls.
Future versions will include walls filled with love letters,
note and poems. There will also be an increasing list of
communications methods, from age old letters to
modern day texts, swipes and who knows what else.
There is as much fun as you want with this theme, but
it can also be melancholy and pensive.

up three times in a national window dressing competition, she then

and fashion. After meeting Nadine, the two formed a friendship and
business partnership after realising they both had a creative touch for
dressing rooms and designing concepts.
Futuristic, by Rebecca Lilley
This is surely one of our most variable themes. It
changes to accommodate may perspectives of what
futuristic might mean. In this version Rebecca has
created an interpretation of cold anonymity facilitated
by the hard to see influence of the web.
Other interpretations offer a more optimistic outllook.
However you choose to interpret it, the experience will
be uniquely yours.
Rebecca began exploring her creative talents from age 5. She
studied theatre and costume design before making the drastic
change to law and working in finance.
Rebecca is currently studying with the London school of styling -
Fashion and personal styling. In learning about style, she likes
exploring modern fashion trends with vintage couture and seeing
how to bring a sense of realism to clothes. She hopes to continue
working on fashion week jobs as well as her business

EME Themes: by Louise Montague
This theme, though created with the designer Trippy
Hippy in mind has its origins in one of EME’s ideas
around the use of colour.
There is no story that immediately springs to mind. It
is more a celebration of the senses, of life and of
expression. The use of faux flowers and bright
fabrics invite a bright and positive story, an ideal we
all aspire to.
Having said that, we welcome interpretations that
buck the trend and stretch the imagination. Even in
choices of clothing, this theme can be reinterpreted.

Love & Light
This theme is born of the ethereal. Where fantasy
meets mindfulness. An escape into the angelic and
an invitation to explore a visualization of the
We use smoke, spheres, faux clouds and many
other inspiring props associated with love, peace
and serenity to make this theme a dream to enjoy.
Whether it is your
intention to get lost in
the embrace of the
theme and its implied
magic, or if you have
desires on recreating a
brand of light that tells
a tale otherwise unique
to you, there is scope
for a wealth of
creativity and of course

throughout her work.
To quote her: “My paintings create a magical
place for you to get lost in for a moment, to let
your imagination go, to escape the realities of
life and for you not to feel the feelings of pain. A
place where we feel accepted and don’t feel like
an outcast. Where we can experience the power
Louise has in the past modelled for EME. Her

artistic expression and we look forward to
working with her In the future.

Laura Scimone (Moonlight Design)
Moonlight Design is a dance costume brand
founded in 2013 by the radiant Italian dancer &
designer Laura Scimone.
Laura grew up in the family’s bridal dresses business getting
exposure to the exquisite craftsmanship of skilled artisans. She
made her debut in the entertainment industry at the age of 19, as a
dance performer, experiencing different dance styles such as jazz,
hip hop and salsa. Belly dance, however, was her calling.
Laura studied at the Oriental Belly Dance School in Milan. She soon
started making her own costumes, gaining the praise of teachers
and colleagues. In 1994 she began studying fashion design at
‘Marangoni’ in Milan, where she enhanced her skills achieving a
professional level as a fashion designer.
She became a makeup artist in 1998 after studying at BCM college
in Milan. Her passion for beauty and fashion started her on a
journey into the fashion industry as makeup artist and body painter
while working on her own dream of becoming a fashion designer
with her own label.
In 2003 she moved to London working as a professional belly
dancer in addition to being a makeup artist. She also continued to
follow her dream of being a belly dance costume maker.
This dream came to fruition in 2013 when she founded ‘Moonlight
Design’, a luxury belly dance brand. Since the launch of Moonlight
Design the brand has expanded rapidly. The unique bespoke
design takes the client on a magical journey. Her motto is ‘You
dream it. We make it!”.
Laura offers a wide range of fabrics, materials and design, sketching
the costume for the client. She hopes this will take the wearer into
the land of their imagination, to become the star they aspire to be.
Tearborn is a modern
indie pop duo from
Monika & Kelly met in a studio in Ladbroke Grove, where
she was studying music production and him recording.
Monika’s biggest influence was Linkin Park as it pulled her
towards a music career, but songwriting was always in her
heart as she wrote her first songs when she was just seven
Kelly was inspired by the likes of Jimi Hendrix and the
‘urban’ hip hop movement. He was given an old keyboard for
his 16th birthday and started writing songs in his bedroom
based on raw emotion.
Together their pop songs are a blend of emotive vocals and
catching melodies with an authentic emotional punch.
Tearborn successfully released their first cover ‘What is
Love’ as a taster, which led to their first original single
‘Beauty in Me’. They are currently working hard and planning
to release two new singles "Come Home“ and "Hold" in the

#aFineLine is an ever evolving photographic installation art piece created
by Elizabeth Richardson & K Anthony.
The message is simple:
“It’s A Fine Line between technology being our salvation or our destruction.”
This being the 7 th incarnation of #aFineLine we
decided not only to reinvent the piece, but to push
the boundary in its interpretation.
The original was modelled by one of the cocreators,
Elizabeth. Thus to go to the extreme,
instead of having a long-haired, white, female nude
model we opted for a shaven, black man in the
shape of JuJu.
JuJu’s performance piece before the actual
fashion show was a melancholy yet striking
representation, which needless to say gained a lot
of attention from attendees and photographers.
More than ever, the use of the orange cabling
couldn’t be understated. It is all that protected his

UTHINK started life in 2010 as a community interest company
before evolving into a charitable organisation (Uthink People
Developing People). Its founders, Gary Pate and Paul
O’Rourke, are considerably experienced and fully qualified
Youth and Community Workers, who have for many years
worked at the coalface with young people in demanding urban
and rural environments, on behalf of various local authorities.
Given Gary and Paul’s youth work experience, it is of no
surprise that UTHINK was originally established with a primary
focus on young people. However, whilst the golden thread of
youth work continues to run through much of what the charity
does, UTHINK has since expanded into providing services for
adults as well. This reflects Gary’s proven track record of
leading services and programmes catering for both
disadvantaged adults and young people.
In addition to its two founders, UTHINK is guided by the
practical wisdom of Jay Malone, who acts as the charity’s
Governance Officer. His role is to ensure that UTHINK not only
complies with, but also enters into the spirit of, the rules,
regulations and policies that exist to ensure the good
governance of the charity and the protection of the vulnerable
people we work with.
UTHINK’s daily operation is also administered by a team of very
experienced staff members, who make it possible for Gary and
Paul to focus on the charity’s service provision.
This is not to forget that a major aspect of UTHINK’s mission is
to empower our service-users to become future UTHINK
leaders and mentors, who are willing to invest their newly
acquired skills into the development and education of others
who also need to experience enfranchisement and
empowerment. In other words, we enable the individuals we
work with to become catalysts for change in their own social
environments and communities. This creates a transformative
cycle that sustains the positive impact of UTHINK’s work, by
enabling our service-users to take ownership of their personal
development and to become sources of inspiration and
influence in their own peer groups.
