Our main activity for the three days is creating a real photo shoot and styling it in a group, my group was assigned to do an editorial photo shoot as if it was going to be in American Vogue (which for me was easy! the rest of my group had to do a little research). We have a real fashion photographer (which I'll talk more about after the class is over!) and real models. We pulled clothes today from a gorgeous couture store in New York City called Blanc de Chine, although it's not my personal style the clothes were amazing and the fabric used was to die for! It was so much fun pulling clothes knowing that they will be in a real photo shoot that I'm helping style. The clothes my group pulled were gorgeous but I don't want to ruin it, you'll have to wait to see the photos after!
I'm going to leave with you an editorial from the July 2010 American Vogue that really inspired my whole group in which direction to go in when pulling outfits for our shoot, also we really loved the make up and hair styling done in this shoot as well.
