I just posted the Thrift Chic Challenge fashion show I styled, http://www.beyunique.com/2015/04/event-thrift-chic-challenge-collection.html, for Value Village at Eco Fashion Week. About a week before the actual show, I coordinated a pre-collection photo shoot with a team full of talent: photographer Marchel Creative, make-up artist Kelseyanna Fitzpatrick with two professional models, Asli from Wilhelmina Vancouver and Lucy from Family Management modelling agency. It was my utmost pleasure working with such a creative, fun, artistic and talented bunch.
I have been a big fan of Marchel's photography whose style is clean, minimal and avant-garde as well as Kelsey's make-up, which is daring and bold with lots of striking colours. What I really liked about working with these two was that they were all about listening and understanding my wants and needs to achieve the best outcome possible for the project; which I believe is why we were able to obtain the result of high-fashion quality out of thrifted garments and accessories.
I would like to thank Marchel, Kelsey and the two models, Asli and Lucy for striking poses as well as the booking agents, Tricia of Wilhelmina and Tanys of Family Management for accomodating with me. Please do my favour and give it a read on Marchel's blog: http://www.stylewithavengeance.com/2015/04/lookbook-beyunique-does-thrift-chic.html. Hope you enjoy the photos as much as I do. Feel free to leave a comment below to let me know what you think! Xo, Lucy
