OPTIC SS16RTW BEHIND THE SCENES
A strong team of 10 headed down to the South Coast of Australia to
It was a sunny day in between two weeks of miserable rain. We planned the day of the shoot perfectly, the weather was predicted to be sunny two weeks out from the shoot, but we didn’t predict the wind.
We were blessed with beautiful blue skies at Bimbadeen, but the wind made it almost unbearable, our phones said it was 17°C, but our skin was saying otherwise.
Anna Mila, all the way from Germany, was such a good sport, shooting summer clothes in winter in your country of origin, trying to make it look summery, is always a tough challenge. But the A-Team pulled through and made it all possible once again.
The location, the clothes, the video, and the shoot turned out better than expected. I could not be more happier about where this collection is headed and how it has come about.
The fabrication of each garment was thought about for the longest period of time. Each garment was hand crafted with floaty and feminine in mind. Each garment was hand designed in my apartment. This is the last collection which will be hand made in my apartment.
I would like to say a big thank you to my Aunty Ann and Uncle John for letting us use their beautiful property for the location of our OPTIC SS16RTW look book, without this beautiful backdrop, OPTIC would not be the same.
I hope you all enjoy the photos; this shoot was one of the funnest shoots of all time
