Miss Shiniqua UK Directing On Set

"Look Whos Cookin'...Goodlookin"
Location: North Mcr
Date: 23rd Jan 2012

So after a long rd of late night grafting and nocturnal antics we finished the collection under a very tight time frame. Two days before the VIP corporate launch SKJA Runway show we managed to squeeze a shoot in for our new Autumn Winter 2013 Look-book. 

The collection looked amazing on film and the new additions fit perfect with the previous pieces we shot in August. The colour scheme was very fresh with the additions of playful baby pinks, peachs, nudes and Classic

We also used hints of embelishment which is a massive trend right now using pearls and diamant√© over the body of the corset. Lace which is also hot right now was a cute addition which gave the signature ruffles a little character.  

This Shoot was particularly exciting as was the 1st time we had shot the menswear. That meant I got to work with boys :) This was definately the perks of the job directing and styling the gorgeous male models

They worked really professionally and given the enourmous pressure and small time frame they rocked it!

I surprisingly enjoyed directing the menswear more on this occasion. They took direction efficiently and inspired me on set. 

The garments fit both models like a glove and gave us a lot to work with angle and composition wise.

It was a full on busy shoot, having to rotate the models, keep on top of hair and make up, get through all pieces whilst keeping energy levels up and giving the same level of direction through out, I and the models were shattered.

None the less against all the odds the hard persistence paid off.
The ladies looked Chic!!
And the Male Models looked Hott!!

The make-up look was inspired by the raring 20's meets the Romanticism of the 1940's. I used cream to powder foundation bases with 2 way powders to set the look. 

A strong cheek and lip with natural eye set off by up do's, large bridal buns. 

I was very happy with how the garments flowed in the shoot giving me lots of angles to work with. 

If only we had more time id be playing around with fabric and framing all night also getting some partner and themed shots. We plan to re-shoot for the SKJA website launching soon. In the meantime follow the couture Fashion house on Twitter @SKJAltd.Location shoot and promo video coming soon. All thoughts feedback and suggestions welcome.
