Toxic Rose with Savannah

This shoot with Savannah and Toxic Rose was first discussed back in 2012 when I saw the Toxic Rose collection in the Evolution Fashion show.  However, various factors meant it got put off several times.  Fortunately everything came together this December as Ed had a new line of clothes in for Christmas and New Year and Savannah was back on the island for the holidays.  As this was Savannah's first shoot I wanted to keep it simple and age appropriate so I decided to go for a studio shoot inspired by Teen Vogue / Nylon magazine .

Designs by Dean with Sarafina

I arranged this shoot with local designer Dean Williams when I found out that he was creating a collection for the annual Bermuda Society of Arts Fashion Show which took place in November.   Some of the items from the show had already been sold by the time we came to shoot.  Fortunately, some of my favourites were still available and Dean managed to borrow the already sold pants for the shoot.  I did a casting call for the model and we chose Sarafina from the dozen or so models that applied.

Angels and Demons with Jessica Sinclair

The planning for this shoot started back in the summer of 2012 but was postponed for various reasons, mostly weather and availability.  The concept changed slightly from a whimsical white dress in a field with a castle in the background to what we have here which is a good versus evil concept.  The plan was always for Jessica to make the outfits herself which involved a big tulle skirt and a corset top.   We finished the look off with a some head pieces created specifically for the shoot by Avarie from paradise flowers and also  found some dried vines at the location which we ended up using as a crown for some of the evil looks.
