A few weeks ago Corrin shared a behind-the-scenes look at a great day we got to spend with our soul sisters Gala, Kat & Shauna from the Blogcademy. Teaming up with these three rockstar bloggers for our very first look book was such an incredible treat. Not only did they shine in front of the camera, but their genuine awesomeness made them blast to work with. And with the help of a killer team of talented friends, we transformed street corners into living rooms, chain-link fences into art galleries, and sidewalks into instant dance parties to create our very own Bushwick Fairytale.
For the first scene, we set up a whimsical hot-pink lounge with our Roxy Sofa, Chippy Mantle, and Sweet Jane Chair. We popped champagne & added some eye-catching props – like our favorite Pink Royal Typewriter. Gala, Kat & Shauna really brought their fashion a-game – each of them wearing a perfectly coordinated floral dress. It was a total babefest.
For the second scene, we wanted to pay homage to Bushwick’s community of talented street artists by creating a mini curbside art gallery. We set up our French Day Bed in front of a wall of Gold Frames & Portraits, and outfitted our models with colorful parasols and vintage cameras. The ladies looked elegant & badass – our single favorite combination.
On Thursday we’ll share the second half of our colorful shoot, and a special behind-the-scenes video from Love + Brain Films. Until then, check out our kickass team of talented collaborators…
