Happy Saturday 🙂
Since I’ve started fashion blogging, I truly believe that I have been blessed with such great opportunities.
A couple of weeks ago, I was asked to style a photoshoot for an amazing fashion photographer Nelson Cortez from Fin Photography.
Nelson was the photographer for Miss Universe 2010-2012 and the photographer for Miss Country. As well as working in numerous fashion shows including Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. Check out some of his amazing work at www.finphotography.com.au
The model for the photoshoot was an international model and finalist for Miss Universe Australia 2011, Christiana Fischer.
I know right! TOTALLY AWESOME PHOTOGRAPHER AND MODEL………I told you I’ve been pretty lucky :).
So with this photoshoot, the image we wanted to portray was elegant, classy and timeless with a touch of edge. Thank you to the talented make up artist Raizel Caringal Signo, nothing says edgy than a good smokey eye with hair slicked back.
We were fortunate enough for the brand name store “Voi” (located at 1/72 Castlereagh Street, Sydney,) to provide the wardrobe.
The day before, I visited the store to pick out the clothes to use for the shoot and saw such a wide range of brand name clothing discounted to such affordable prices. It was so hard to concentrate without wanting to buy something for myself hehehe.
To suit the style we were moving towards, I used an incredible pleated scallop skirt by Gia Mattiolo, with and Aqua body suit for the first edgy look. To meet the elegance and timeless image for the second look, I used a Versace dress and teamed it with a Emporio Armani clutch.
Voi has recently launched their online shopping website and these items are going for grabs so check it out before you miss out – http://www.shopatvoi.com.au
Tomorrow second time lucky, I get the chance to work with Nelson Cortez styling my first bridal photoshoot, wish me luck 🙂 !
As promised, here are the behind the scene and sample photos from the fashion shoot. The finished photos will be up soon so keep an eye out, trust me they are worth waiting for ;).
