AW14 Pazuki Photoshoot February 05 2014, 0 Comments

How was our weekend here at Pazuki? Well we had the small matter of our first photoshoot for A/W 2014!
On Saturday the day started out like many others here at Pazuki HQ, chocolate chip brioche and innumerable cups of tea whilst looking through our new collection. The difference this weekend was that our perusing had a pressing purpose: we were choosing outfits and accessory combinations for our lovely photographer, Stewart Bywater, to shoot.
With Stewart filling us in on his traumatic morning and our main model nowhere to be seen, (for genuinely unforeseen circumstances it must be said), we were on for a typically exciting day of shooting!

Fortunately for us we had organised some shots of the beautiful Coleman Douglas Pearls, which provided the main inspiration for our new pearly prints. Chrissie, of Coleman Douglas Pearls, arrived with her daughter Natalia and a huge selection of her exquisite pearls – ranging from understated single pearl earrings to extravagant pearl and leather necklaces.

We then had the pleasure of teaming our prints with their inspiration. The combinations were to be worn, fittingly, by Natalia.

We spent much of the morning wearing all (yes ALL) of the pearls around, just to ensure that none were misplaced of course! Once our main model, Laura, had arrived and was ready to go, we moved the shoot out on location, to the stunning house which inspired another of our new prints - Mantelpiece.

We shot late into the afternoon, with Stewart and the models showing superb enthusiasm and dedication, working through lunch to ensure that we got the all important images we needed. Stewart was even kind enough to finish off the day, catching every last bit of day light, by snapping some extra S/S 14 pictures with, the face of Pazuki S/S, Camille.

And then by taking a few menswear shots outside, taking advantage of every drop of light, on Barnes Common. All in all it was a fantastic day!
