My friend Concetta asked me to come and help her on a photoshoot she was styling for. She and Kristina (the photographer) have been collaborating for a while now. Have a peek;)
The shoot was held at the Romeur Academy Studios. This where we actually met in the first place - a few years ago when the academy started a fashion & media oriented website I started writing articles for it and they both made part of the editing (Kristina is the editor in chief).
Concetta is showing the editorial which inspired her to the model.

The wardrobe. THE WARDROBE! Concetta was so lucky to get to borrow some pieces from our friend Emanuele's private collection. I'm telling you, I think I haven't seen someone more obsessed with fashion than he is. So we have here some pieces of Hussein Chalayan, Stella McCartney, Margiela and last but not least Prada (the fur jacket you see below). Plus the bags- LV,Fendi, YSL, ..
This is the model- Danilo. Though he's not a professional model, he's natural charm and charisma filled the whole room the minute he walked in. He didn't notice I was taking a photo of him - I love his profile! And that hair...
Kristina is a great photographer, she knew exactly which buttons to push to get the right attitude out of the model. Would like to be photographed by her one fine day myself too, maybe:)
As soon as Danilo noticed me, he took one of his zoolanderish poses and Kristina stopped him right away, telling him not to do THAT on the shoot..
Everybody, this is Concetta presenting Fendi.
Everybody, this is Danilo presenting The Muse (YSL).
I ADORED THESE PANTS.
With Kristina not seeing him, Danilo does not lose the chance to pull off some other of his zoolanderish poses...
Thanks to Kristina and Concetta, it was a blast.
