Hello dearests! How was your weekend? Busy? Relaxing?
Mine was a wonderful mix of both. Staying in on a raining Saturday and Sunday I was out all day at a Alice in Wonderland inspired fashion shoot where I was invited to provide table styling and props. Here are a few snaps of the day I took whilst the real photographer was busy doing his job. Of course those images will be stellar, but wanted to share with you right away my vantage point of the day. Although overcast and very cold, we trudged through (not minding the mud on our boots or in this case 4-inch stilletos) all for the sake of art. In between takes the models would throw on their coats and run to the heated cars waiting nearby.
The shoot was the vision of fashion designer Jennie of Vicious Threads who contacted me a week ago to see if I could join the team along with fellow local Etsian Meran of The Sai-Sai Shoppe who created the mini hats for the models.
Collaborating and trudging through an isolated landscape with plastic totes in hand reminded me of the years in art school schlepping around large art installations and costumes for performance pieces ... all in the name of art. and a shared experience. Priceless moments.
Hopefully I will have the professional images to share soon. I've given up trying to edit mine to perfection. They all seemed to come out kinda grainy today. So thanks for sharing this moment with me even if it is a bit rough around the edges.
That's why I love you so much!
ps. Also a huge thanks to my dear friend Eve Peach for loaning out some of her beloved teacups and butterfly teapot for the shoot.
