S/S12 Trend Shoot

In a recent project for my Uni course, we were asked to style and organise a photo shoot with clothes inspired from the s/s12 catwalks. My partner and I decided to use the pastel and lace trend as it's such a versatile look that you can really have fun with, and that we did.

Our model Kristie was great and took direction really well. Even though the London skies were clear and the sun was out, temperatures weren't at their best. Nonetheless, she didn't let it faze her and got on with the job like a true professional.

My favourite shot. We had Kristie wearing the blazer, but this was a great alternative pose - her pins looks great in those lemon pastel skinny jeans.

The shoot took place in Kentish Town on a street lined with pastel coloured houses - perfect for our theme. What's more, we stumbled upon this baby blue VW van along the way, it seemed to good to be true!

Siobhan Drew took care of hair and make-up and did a cracking job. The focus was to keep Kristie looking natural with big, defined brows and little colour on the eyes. However, we wanted to have a hint of the peachy/coral tones we all know and love to wear in the Spring. We did two hair and lip looks and changed up the nail colour three times - all worked so well with each outfit.

We were so happy with how all the photos turned out. Meg Hutchison did a great job and knew exactly what we wanted from the shoot. All of her other work is stunning, particularly her portraits, so I knew that we would end up with some great beauty shots as well. All in all, a very successful day - I thoroughly enjoyed the styling aspect of this project and loved being able to hands on with hair and make up choices as well. Hopefully I can get more involved with styling again soon!
