Just some behind the scenes photos from the photoshoot –
They arrived on the day of the photoshoot so I wasn’t able to add them in, not that you’d be able to see them while the model was wearing the garments. But while I was getting to the end of making my garments I decided that they needed labels.
It’s strange, or maybe I am, but I was super excited to have designed an printed labels for my jackets. It’s made them seem so much more professional. Anyway, here a picture of what they look like now I’ve sewing them into my jackets.
This week was a a bit of mad dash. Although now that I think about it it was a very relaxed mad dash, more of a frantic stroll, but enough of that, let me tell you why. I came in on Monday, knowing that I need to have both of garments completed by the end of Wednesday because the photoshoot (in which the models are suppose to be wearing OUR GARMENTS!) was on Thursday, and it just so happened that I was first in the list to have my garments photographs.
With the weight of that hanging over my head, I laser-cut the two section for my one garment, and then created the hood outer with the laser-cut section trapped in. I know, sometimes I amazes even myself.
Tuesday, Beth fixed in the lining, and we pinned the larger laser-cut section to the jacket, and that when I got scissor happy and made that laser-cutting look extra fine. It was then time to trap that into the colour and attached the hood. Oh and at some point before the lining went in, I died some fabric bright yellow (yayayya!) for the pockets – which means Beth also put in the zips. Its all a bit of blur what happened that day but you know what? The jacket got completed!
Alternatively the lining could have gone in on Wednesday morning, I’m not sure anymore.
Thursday dawned bright and early, like really early! I don’t think I’ve seen that hour of the morning for a long time, just saying. It was quite a strange experience, not something I ever thought I would be doing. I felt a little out of place, everyone else was very professional while I was still be my normal self and watering what the flip id gotten myself into, however when my garments started getting photographed it got better. I was so cool to see the model wearing my clothes! and they looked so good, not that I’m blowing my own horn, but heck yes I am cause they were flipping awesome!
Thankfully my fellow amigo Paige was there on Friday to get my photographs so I’d be able to make my lookbook over the weekend, which I did! Bo-yah! It’s not a big book, only two sheets of paper but I thought I twas something nice to add into my press packs and have chilling in my display space. We’ll soon see if that was the right decision.
