I did a talk for a conference on Saturday and it was AMAZING.
Afterwards, the models and I went out into the park next to the venue and had a photoshoot, which was soooo much fun.
And then I went home, had some time with Mr D, had a nap, got up, and went dancing. Perfect day.
Anyway, here is a sneak peek of images from the photoshoot. I’ll be sharing more throughout the week, including individual model photoshoots, and as they come in from the various photographers cameras.
The raspberry swirl gown got its first showing ever at this event, though I need to finish the bertha.
There were four different cameras in use, so a great deal of interactions and formal and informal posing was captured.
I mainly got formal, posed, images of single models, but I love the shots that other photographers got of groupings.
In addition to the dresses I made, Madame O wore her sapphire dress, and we paired a vintage 1940s nightie from her collection with a vintage 30s robe from mine to illustrate a point.
At the end of the photoshoot I had the ridiculous idea that we should all get an obligatory wedding ‘jump’ shot.
Let’s just say I’m glad I’m not the one in stays or hoopskirts!
That was awesome. I liked how everyone jumped in the end. Lol.
HAHAH!! I love what the robe a la francaise did when Chiara jumped! Just as well it wasn’t a regular occurence in 1785 😉
I can see Chiara’s ankles…oh my! 😉
Love the photos, and the Botanical Gardens are the perfect setting. Now I need to find someone in Melbourne who will let me wear a period costume and be photographed — I’m totally jealous.
Shhh…don’t tell, but it’s not the Bot Gards, it’s the Hutt Gardens. I know!
haha I recognize this place 😉 It’s the gardens beside the Lower Hutt Horticultural hall and council buildings right? All of them look absolutely fabulous!
It looks like a live version of when you get the sketches showing fashion through the ages.
Oh, those dresses are all together wonderful!
