For the past three years, Katie has been modelling for photographer and designer Kirsty Mitchell‘s photographic project, Wonderland.

Kirsty has used aerial hoop and stilt walking in a number of the pictures, and a selection of the images can currently be seen and purchased at Quaglino’s restaurant and bar in Mayfair.

The bar is serving floral cocktails inspired by Kirsty’s work, and there are floral installations by McQueen’s florist. The exhibition runs until 14th November.

Wild Thing, using stilts

It’s a lovely bar and a great chance to see a selection of the Wonderland pictures. There are only a few more characters to shoot until the series is completed and the full journey through Wonderland can be seen. There will be a full exhibition of the whole series, plus the costumes and props in 2013. Because Photoshop is not used to create the images…all costumes, flowers, hair and muddy swamps are real.
