statement leopard print & sexy leather…

so here goes my first proper post, no idea why i’m nervous because i’ve been blogging for around 2 years now… (my personal blog is day-dreaming of lights if you fancy checking it out!)

Yesterday was our group fashion shoot for our course fashion magazine at Tiger Tiger nightclub in Aberdeen, just needed to write a post about it because i’m still amazed at our ability to pull off such an amazing shoot! we drew inspiration from a shoot in Instyle magazineΒ  which consisted of various celebrities clad in luxurious materials, statement prints teamed with big hair and bold make-up whilst throwing themselves around in an exclusive looking location in a fun and casual fashion. Our first instinct for location was Tiger Tiger nightclub in Aberdeen so we contacted them and managed to secure the whole ground floor including VIP for the whole afternoon which was amazing in itself!

We secured 5 models who were friends/friends of friends (3 female, 2 male) and we managed to get 2 first year students (1 male, one female) who volunteered to help us out. the female first year was actually a professional model and she was just amazing, her previous work has included ASOS, Stella McCartney for Adidas and Look magazine so it was great having her as part of the shoot, but on the other hand she looked better in our clothes than we did so it was hard to watch her be so beautiful!

We also managed to get the help of a make-up artist called Piffanie who was brilliant, she also helped out with a few of the girls hair, the only downside to having her help was the fact that it took ages to make-up each model but the end result was amazing so it was more of a help than a hinder!

Not forgetting Tom Joy who took our photos for us, he’s a good friend of ours and an amazing photographer so there was no utter of a question about who would take the shoot, especially considering that he’s done a few shoots for us before! check out his website

absolutely thrilled with how well the shoot turned out, when the photos are edited i’ll post a few up and explain them, just thought i’d give you a bit of a teaser!
