So I'm going to start doing the odd #TBT because I actually have quite a few shoots that I still love and want to share again! I'm going to start with this beauty that I styled for BT2 AW12. It was featured in Life magazine and was the last shoot I did before I joined Penneys. In my naivety I thought I would be able to still do a bit of styling as well as work in a manic buying department...that did not happen!
We wanted to show that Dublin can be just as gorgeous as Paris, in the right light!! I used a lot of pieces from some of the French brands in BT2; like Maje, Sandro and The Kooples. These brands exploded onto the UK and Irish fashion scene a few years ago and are still hugely popular. We also wanted to shoot the couple shots a bit like The Kooples' campaigns.
I loved working with photographer Sean Jackson on this shoot. We shot it super early on a Sunday morning. I had to get the bus home from Belfast at 11 the night before because I was at one of my best friends hens! It was really worth it though, as it turned out to be one of my favourite shoots. Leonard Daly did a fab job on make up and my fave man Dave Cashman worked his magic with the model's hair (and cycled the completely banjaxed bike around the city...thank you Nay for the loan of Doris, I presume she's not in NY with you??!)
Let me know what you think of the shoot, I think a lot of the looks are still quite current!
