i n s p i r e d : Autumn Almanac

Posted on: Monday, 1 October 2012

I am very excited to say I will finally be doing my AW12 shoot this weekend. I can't wait! So, I've set up a Pinterest board to gather some ideas on the photo composition & vibe & all that. Here are a few I love:

I want it to be more about capturing the vibe of my collection - English country side, nature, simple shapes, days drawing in & wild animals.
 The only thing I'm not sure about is taking the photos outside, a lot of my dresses are sleeveless & I don't want my model to freeze to death, also I want to create something realistic & show off the garments.

How to you feel about pairing my own collection with cardies & outer wear that isn't my own? Do you expect a photo shoot/look book to include only items from one designer?

  3. I think I would expect a lookbook to contain only things that I can buy. You wouldn't want the outerwear to become something a buyer wants to purchase instead of your awesome dresses! Maybe if you have a friend who makes outerwear y'all could collaborate? That would be pretty awesome!

  5. I don't see why you couldn't, if it was clearly stated and if the item was something that was readily available or if it was something that most people would already own and could add to your designs themselves without having to buy something else.

    1. I think you are right. If it is something that isn't taking away from my items & too hard for someone to imagine creating the look themselves. Thanks :)

  6. I always assumed what was pictured was available to buy, that is until I got into photography and found that most any shoot contains numerous items which are "stylist's own" or "photographer's own". As far as I am aware it's an *ehem* "industry standard" ;)

    Bring on the crazy layerin!

    1. Yeah, it's so tricky to have everything from someone you know & some stuff I already own goes well. I think it's okay to use the occasional piece :)
