Our second shoot took place in Make Space, a beautiful photography studio, in The Chocolate Factory, Dublin. The space was flooded with natural light through the buildings old steel framed windows and we kept the place cosy with a few heaters and hot water bottles – at least we have the best clothes for keeping warm during a shoot. The Chocolate Factory once manufactured various sweet treats including Toblerone and Mint Crisp, this industrial building now houses an eclectic mix of small businesses and individuals in creative sectors including art, design, music, photography, up-cycling, illustration, graphics, events, and small batch food & drink production.
Once again we were lucky to work with an incredibly talented bunch of friends and had so much craic on the day. Frank our photographer is a true gent with easy going efficiency, Catherine worked her magic with hair & make-up, Eavan captured the wonderful energy through video which Margie complimented with an original music score. Our models Lucy & Sal were a dream to work with, bringing fresh fun energy and lots of great poses that matched the colourful knitwear. We started the day with Look Book shots and finished with Editorial shots against a vibrant mustard background that set off the wools beautifully. I styled the shoot with vintage Levi’s jeans (from my own wardrobe and rented from Monto located just around the corner from the studio) and socks from Odd Pears. Styling for me is always about keeping it simple and functional.
Hope you enjoy the photos and video.
