A few weeks ago I managed to find a gap in everyone's schedule and put together some shoots. Some you've seen already and I'm proud to add this to my portfolio too.
Using beautiful couture dresses from local designers Francois Vedemme and Ruff Tung, we created an old Hollywood glamour shoot with the lovely Tayla Du Mont from Ice Models. Tayla is a graceful and fun young woman who is so dedicated to modeling, she squeezed in our shoot before she checked into hospital for a procedure.
Adele was the stylist and I think this was her last shoot before she went on maternity leave! (She has since had her little sailor and is loving being a mom and enjoying some much needed time off from work.)
Vaughan Treyvellan worked tirelessly creating the mirror box in studio using three pieces of plexiglass. The shoot was tough to pull off due to all the reflections as you can see in the behind the scenes pics.
I will do a full post on how I created Tayla's look including her beautiful and luxurious hair.
Tayla is such a trooper! In between fashion week, flying back and forth to her matric dance and a hospital visit, she managed to find time to work with us. She is such a pleasure to work with and is a true testament to the talent in Durban.
She has near-flawless skin as you can see in the behind the scenes pic...before you think it's all photoshop work, trust me, she makes a MUA's job easy!
