Photoshoot On A Construction Site
Photoshoots are so often about the outfit, but I always think that the background view is just as important. Also sometimes my looks are inspired by the location I really want to shoot at!
It was great to team up with Ownthelooks.com which was created by Ola Farahat. We met earlier that month in Paris when she brought with her a selection of items from Dubai that she felt represented my unique style.
When I got back to London I planned the shoot and styled each piece together with some of my own collections in order to give girls a vision from a different perspective ‘The Beauty of styling’.
For some time I have wanted to create a photoshoot in a construction environment so that the busy hard background of construction could contrast with the fashionable clothing. The shoot was organised at a large new development called OakhillPark.co.uk being built in Putney London SW15 – the show homes were amazing and the penthouses have some of the best views in London.
All looks were shot that day with Victoria Metaxas (some are seen HERE) – we had to have a site manager present at all times for security reasons and also had to wear all the hi-vis construction clothing and massive boots. Walking through all builders carrying high heels whilst snapping at the same time created lots of interest on the site. Victoria and I were asked a few times if this was a special shoot for Vogue Magazine! Haha
