Hayley and Minty booked me for a fashion shoot at the studio to create some high quality fashion images for their degree finals presentation. Both the girls are studying for a degree in fashion design at Huddersfield University and are just about in sight of the finishing line. In order to cross the line and get the merit however, they both had to come up with a small collection of around five pieces each which had to be photographed in a studio environment and a portfolio presented along with the garments for the final assessment. I shot some fashion images a couple of years ago for another designer from Huddersfield University and I really enjoy working with these creatives I have to say; they always have some great ideas and usually we end up with a great model and make-up artisit to make the whole thing complete. Today was no exception and I was amazed to see model Chloe enter the studio standing at 6’1″ in her very flat baseball boots but still looking remarkably tall. Imagine then, what she was like once the girls had dressed her and stuck her in 7″ heels! Talk about tall! It’s the first time I’ve had a model in the studio that had to duck to get through the doorway to and from the changing rooms! Drawing myself up to full height, I only managed to make it to her shoulders when standing next to her. No wonder she has been snapped up again for a second year running to model at the London Fashion Week!
I’m only permitted to show a couple of images from the shoot until after the main fashion event when the girls’ outfits will be priemiered at the University fashion show later this month. More to come after the 18th when the embargo will be lifted and also, a heads up that I will be shooting another fashion set for yet another designer from Huddersfield Uni over the next couple of days.
