A few months ago I introduced June, with whom I had the opportunity to collaborate during a trip to Cameroon. Last December, I returned home and I obviously could not go without organizing a shooting. This time we tried different looks in different places. You know me well enough now to know that I like challenges, so I entrusted him with the artistic direction: imagine having to decide the location of the shooting, the type of makeup, the attitude of the model … everything except the outfit. A challenge that he met hands down. Let’s start with a late night in the tropics.
It’s all about the point of vue
You surely have notice that sequins and glitters have made a comeback in our dressings. From day and night, impossible to escape. So I chose this dress on purpose with only one idea in mind: make a special and original look from a piece seen everywhere. Generally this is the artistic direction. I have to admit, it was always difficult for me to let this part to another person, from the moment I see a garment, I already have specifics ideas. Yet this time, I entrusted June with this task and, once again, he understood my expectations and even went beyond. I could not hide my astonishment when he offered me: the return from a night out by the rising sun.
This moment when the sun rises and when we do not really know what time it is. This moment we come back from a party, impatient to go back home while taking our time so that our outfit is seen from the maximum of people.
It’s all bout the light
I wish I could describe how we did this session but not sure to be able to restore the complexity of a creative mind at work. Imagine, while I was looking for the perfect place to stick to the theme (when you are a control freak), I heard “it’s all about the light, even here will be enough”, and that’s how an ordinary house, certainly pretty of my neighborhood became a decor that reminded me of “Melrose Place”. Magic.
What a spirit !!!!!!! I can not wait to show you the rest.
In the meantime do not forget: pensez, appliquez, modez.
Je suis pétrie d'art et de mode depuis plus de 10 ans maintenant ! J'estime que la mode est bien plus que ce qu'elle peut paraître. J'en fais un outil d'acceptation de soi au travers des looks et relookings que je propose sur Le Club des Cotonettes ! Aider les autres à se révéler à travers leur style ? Mon but ultime.
