They say sharing is caring, so I’m going to share one of my favourite campaign shoots. Bringing someone’s collection to life and creating imagery that captures the essence of the designs is in my opinion, what a campaign shoot is all about. I recently had the privilege of being asked by Stephanie from SE by Sant Elia to design the makeup for their resort 17 collection, “Taken by the Sky”. A collection that is all about “1970s boho luxury with an effortless twist, European vintage glam and free spirits, reinterpreted into modern and relevant shapes” this is what we created.
This was shot in a motel that looked like it had been The team behind this shoot comprised:
I loved so many pieces of this collection and my wish list kept growing as the day progressed! I asked Stephanie who she had in mind when she was designing and she told me that she wanted to create a wardrobe of wearable yet show-stopping occasion pieces, that were luxurious and flattering on the female figure.
“The collection has a touch of cheekiness, it’s for a woman who likes to get noticed but doesn’t take herself too seriously”.
My favourite from the collection was the The Edge of Seventeen jumpsuit while for Steph it was the lace co-ord pant and top set from the “Bird in Flight” story which only just last week spotted being worn by Ally from Substance Style Blog to Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in Sydney.
For the makeup I created a look that I like to call “undone glamour” which took influence from the 1970s but is wearable for the modern woman. The skin was creamy and glowing, the cheekbones illuminated, the eyes were metallic golden amber with lots and lots of lashes and liquid liner. Brows were groomed and defined while lips were a mix of pink and brown lipstick blended with Egyptian Magic balm.
I loved being part of this campaign shoot and I hope you enjoyed reading how it all came together. Please let me know if you have any questions about the products used or how I worked with them. Now I’m off to do some shopping!
