Earlier in the year we shot the fashion story that's in the current issue. The palette is warm and welcoming, just right for the cold winter days we're experiencing here. As usual, our photographer Claudio Raschella, kept the mood light while Emilie and Annabelle oversaw each shot. The fashion shoot involves a lot of planning and preparation to bring it to fruition. Emilie spends a lot of time coordinating dresses with jewellery, shoes, hats and gloves from all over the country and even overseas. Annabelle and I plan the backgrounds and mood of the shoot and watch over everything to make sure it's running smoothly and on time.
Chris Geracitano makes a start on hair and makeup for our model Emma. She was so naturally beautiful, it didn't take much to get her ready for the camera. Emilie fixes the drop on the Culture Bridal Couture gown to ensure it is hanging correctly with gloves from the Adelaide Antique Market.
Emilie watches as Claude calls the shots – literally! One of the stunning pieces of jewellery loaned to us for the day from Lisa Ho.
Claude directs our model to achieve the shot he has in mind in a Rachel Gilbert gown and Prismera necklace. Annabelle is never far away, overseeing each shot with a smile on her face.
Claude reviews the pics as they load to his laptop – you can see the concentration on his face – he is a perfectionist. The model listens to Claude's directions before getting ready for the next shot in a skirt Emilie designed with talented designer Liva Loren, Ender Legard bustier from Net-A-Porter and beautiful Kailis pearl earrings and necklace.
