BEHIND THE SCENES: ALMOST FAMOUS SHOOT

IMG_5958

For many reasons, this shoot was (is) my baby. When Rocky of Phocal Point Photography came up to me with the concept of this shoot, I was shocked but overwhelmed and excited. I had to be in! I've done a couple of styling stints back home but I've never done it for anyone in Canada yet. I was stoked especially when Rocky said that the concept is "KD's style"--well, that is (was) easy. I thought of pulling out clothes from stores but it is MY style we are talking about here so why do I have to pull out when I have a closet full of clothes?? And so I did. Summer is here so I thought why not do an urban boho/70's theme? And so I did.

Come day of the shoot, the studio was filled with earth tones, floppy/straw hats, sunnies, fringe, fur, open-toed heels and lots of bikini tops! While we were shooting, it dawned on me (us) that the outfits that I came up with are very "Almost Famous" thus the title of the shoot! It was never my intention to be inspired by the movie (although I loved the movie through and through), I was just thinking of what I would wear if say I was to go to the Hamptons, Coachella/music festival/folk fest or a pool BBQ patio party. My style, as you all know is very easy and effortless--exactly what I told the model Brooke to portray--just be carefree, think I-am-too-cool for you.

 So happy with how the photos turned out! I am so lucky to have such an amazing team--everyone had a say on the creative direction and even the styling! I will share with you guys the final product once it is out already and we can disclose them. For now, enjoy these BTS photos and you prolly have the gist of it.
