I was super excited to be involved in a shoot for Stephanie Cassano's (@steffcassano) final school garment inspired by the sea; particularly, Australian beaches. The colour palette and textures of the fabrics mimic the natural Australian landscape. As Glenda Millard puts it, the garment 'reminded me of the sea; the way she came dancing towards you, wild and beautiful'.
A quick shoot in the morning - before a storm rolled in - at two of Australia's most iconic beaches, Torquay Surf Beach and Jan Juc, was perfect. With the help of model, Elle Murphy (@ellemurphh), we were able to capture the beauty of the garment. I loved the easiness and casual nature of the shoot, which allowed us to connect with the surrounding landscape - beginning on shore, and then moving into the water, where we stood being hit by rough waves. But hey, it was all part of the experience.
