A long time ago before I ever started writing about fashion, I used to style the odd shoot for FQ Men and various other online publications and magazines. The first shoot I ever did was for Nabil Azadi's short-lived website Peppermint Teaparty, alongside a then-little-known stylist named Zara Mirkin. After FQ Men closed down, I focussed my energies on writing, and here we are today. But midway through last year, Katherine Lowe and I were asked to shoot an ad for AS Colour for their new grey marle sweaters. It felt good to get back on the horse, if only for one shot, so when AS Colour approached me last week to style their new catalogue, I jumped at the chance. The job included casting models (Emily Smith at Clyne and Seth Coates-Chitty at 62), organising a makeup artist, rolling tee shirt sleeves and attempting to spark a little chemistry between two shy kids. Here are the results.
All tee shirts, hoodies and sweaters are available from AS Colour.
Full disclosure: styling the shoot was a paid job (but I was not obliged to blog about it).
I LIKE YOU!
