So I present to whoever's interested out there, a series of images from my first ever 'proper' photoshoot. Aptly (or unoriginally) named 'Into the Woods', we decided that somewhere in the heart of Mount Dandenong would be the perfect backdrop to complement the outfits I had in mind. These Violet & I pieces are a mix from current and previous collections, featuring a range of printed silks, chunky knits and simple well-tailored blazers. I love how there's something special in the design of each piece, yet they remain so wearable and easily styled - here I have dug into my own wardrobe to complete each individual look.
We had ventured onto a gravel road that seemed way too narrow to be a two-way path and really, there was no turning back once we were on it. Not to be a total girl but I hate creepy crawlies and trust me there were a ton of weird and wonderful creatures out there! Anyway, sometime during the shoot this black thing (a leech perhaps) made its way up the open-toe of my wedge which left me swatting and screaming in horror. Also I almost took a forward tumble off the rock up the top; my 5 inch platforms didn't quite leave me much room to react to save myself. I was rather traumatised.
Nevertheless, I'm so glad to see that the shots turned out beautifully, if I might say so myself ;) Let me know what you think? x
Thanks Thomas and Eric for being such perfectionists with the photos.
