Inna Clothing Co. lookbook/editorial Part 1

Comments Off on Inna Clothing Co. lookbook/editorial Part 1

Long but fantastic day shooting Inna Clothing Co.’s F/W 2013 collection. First we shot the lookbook at the studio and then the editorial at a location one hour away. In order to make everything run evenly within a tight time frame Colette and I had set up the studio the night before but still got up at 5am to start this marathon day. The studio shoot went smoothly and efficiently. DJ (model from Sutherland) had been pre fitted for the dresses about a week prior which made for fast changes. We all kept an eye on the clock and we were able to complete the shoot for the lookbook by 11am as scheduled. I love all their collections thus far but this one is definitely my favourite. Beautiful and elegant dresses in the patented Inna Clothing Co. style.

Thanks to DJ for not only looking gorgeous but for keeping us entertained with her great sense of humour and her iPod for a great mix of tunes.

Thanks to Tasha Farrington for the styling and her attention to details.

Thanks to Buffy Shields for the awesome job with hair and make up.

Thanks to Colette for her assistance.

What a great team!!!

Stay tuned for part two of this blog with images from the editorial.

World MasterCard Fashion Week F/W 2013 Collections

Comments Off on World MasterCard Fashion Week F/W 2013 Collections

Unfortunately I missed the first 3 days and missed my favourites Pink Tartan, David Dixon and the usual great presentation from the Korhani show. Regardless the last two days had some of my other favourites which included Pavoni, Rudsak, Vawk and I was also impressed by the Stephen Caras show. Many photographers decided to shoot or were obligated to shoot Lucian Matis’ show which was offsite and at the same time slot as the Stephen Caras show (7pm). I didn’t want to scramble back and forth and chance missing the Pavoni show at 8pm so although I love Lucian Matis, I was happy with my decision to stay put. Fantastic designs! Although this seasons WMCFW was held again at David Pecaut Square, the layout inside the tent was slightly different. Both the main runway and the studio runway were shorter in length than last season. Also the media lounge was more of a section between the runways and had a small upper level. What made it worse was that there was no sponsor for the media lounge this year which meant we had to pay for everything (except water, although the bar handed out one at a time per person). A lot different from last season where food and booze were gratis all week.

This season my spot in the pit was floor level, just right of centre (many endless thanks to Ron and Raymond from CanadaWears). I’ve never sat on the floor cross legged in the pit before and even though the runway shows were only 15 minutes in length (average) I found my legs cramping and falling asleep while shooting. Very uncomfortable. During one show I actually had to stop shooting and straighten my leg for relief. It made me realize that not only am I not as fit as I perhaps could be but I don’t use certain muscles (lower back, butt, upper thigh) as much as others. I woke up Friday with soreness in those areas and although this made Friday uncomfortable as well, I pushed through regardless. All respect to Raymond from CanadaWears for not only shooting in this position all week but juggling 2 cameras and a GoPro during the shows. I do think that it is the best perspective for full length shots of the model but too low for the end of the runway posed shots. Anyway, I survived the two days and got the shots needed.

Great to see and shoot with the usual suspects in the pit.

Thank you to Elucid Magazine.

Special thanks to Ron and Raymond from CanadaWears.

Once again the shOws were held at the gorgeous Andrew Richard Designs building in downtown Toronto. Top notch production from Paola Fullerton and her team always make this two day fashion event an exciting and much anticipated event during Toronto Fashion Week. This season designers included Comrags, Jean Pierre Braganza, Tanya Taylor, Steven Tai and Jeremy Laing. It was great to also see the gang in the pit as we readied ourselves for next weeks World MasterCard Fashion Week.
