Victoria - KILT Clothing

This year as part of the final year of my Bachelor in Arts & Media I worked on a photography fashion campaign for a NZ Designer. At the beginning of the year I contacted labels I would like to work with for my project. KILT Clothing got on board and let me work with their awesome range of clothing. In total this year I completed nineteen shoots, eight of which were for KILT. It was an amazing experience collaborating with so many talented people, hair and makeup stylists along with a team of lovely models. We were lucky to shoot in some wonderful locations too.

I am excited to share with you the second of my studio experiments for my 3rd year studio project - 'Fashion Photography for a New Zealand Label'
The label I am going to photograph has a strong 'Kiwi' theme, supporting New Zealand in a wide variety of ways. It is important that I promote the NZ aspect of the label, so I have experimented with different ways in which I can approach this. With the first shoot, I played with props - nostalgic kiwiana icons such as souvenir tea towels, apple crates & Nelson Photo News magazines. This time I have taken New Zealand paintings, prints & photography, placing the model beside them. With each composition I have chosen a dress which 'speaks' to the image, creating unity. 

Marina, looks stunning in these dresses, she is a fabulous talent with a beautiful grace to her,

I always welcome feedback, so please comment any thoughts. 

With thanks my amazing team of contributors:
