After a week of preparation which involved mainly shopping and painting plus just a few late nights, we had the photoshoot for the very first Hannah Zakari lookbook yesterday.
It was the first time I've attempted styling like this, y'know, with models and stuff, so I was really nervous. Thankfully I had a great team - 3 models, a photographer, make-up artist and hairdresser - who were all fantastic, professional and made me feel really confident that we'd end up with something special. I think we did...
The lookbook probably won't be available for a month or two and I'm not going to show you any actual images from it until it's all ready. But I will tell you that it's going to be very colourful, quirky and fun, with a few extras I think you'll like!
So, here's a few behind the scenes photos I took just as a wee teaser!
We used the vintage kimono in my previous post for two shots, one with jewellery from Kirsty Kirkpatrick and another with delicate skull jewellery by Michelle Chang layered up with a few few pieces made by me.
This was probably one of my favourite looks, I got the awesome fruit skirt from Armstrongs in the Grassmarket and we used pieces from Petit Plat to go with it obviously!
We did another shot with the same outfit using Plastic Bat's amazing Welcome to Las Vegas Necklace which ended up being my favourite look of all - but you'll have to wait to see it!
Here's a few shots of one of the models, Caitlin, doing some test shots and getting her make up done :)
And for a bit of fun, John put this wee animation together of model Mhairi leaving the shop with a new Showpony tote!
