Becci On the first shoot!

Roaming the streets of Dundee

Our rail on the second day of shooting <3

The last two weeks I have been working on a big collaborative project with the amazing Ross Mclean. Ross shot my graduate voodoo zumbies collection - the incredible voodoo inspired shoot that I built the set for with all the possessed images which had the models floating mid air looking mid trance. The last shoot received incredible feedback and support and was published in so many editorials and websites including SLAVE, Bitching & Junkfood, Kingdom of Style and WGSN. So to say I am excited about the launch of the new shoot would be a complete understatement! This time we have went even bigger and better than the last and the project stems over two consecutive shoots and one final fashion film and the whole project will accumulate into an exhibition taking place in late September. I don't want to ruin the surprise or give to much away but the whole shooting process has been so much fun!!! Our first shoot was shot all on film cameras and the style of shooting captured the whole idea of optimistic clothing and the youthful vibe of the brand! It was great fun taking to the streets of my hometown Dundee to shoot the collection and watching all the down and outs and toothless junkys expressions and reactions as my models walked past them on a casual Friday afternoon head to toe in the collection.

The second shoot took place in the incredible Studio Roro ran by Rory Weyms and shot by Ross Mclean. I have to say a MASSIVE thank you to everyone who helped capture my vision this day. Thank you to Ross, Barry and Rory for being extremely patient and shooting ALL day and nearly all night! The shoot took well over 12 hours :S And the talented Bryndis for capturing the Alien like make up looks I had envisioned. Also to Cat our stand by hair dresser who dropped all her plans to come help out as our original hair plans fell through. And last but not least a massive thank you to my models Kevin Mdanga, Rebecca Butler & Sally Caithness who kept the energy alive on set all day and really did push their bodies to new levels turning into contortionist's for the day! I cannot wait to reveal the final photos to you and start the next adventure of filming the fashion film. Which we are currently casting extras for the club scene. So if you think you have a face that could fit the brand and can make it to Dundee on Monday the 13th and Tuesday the 14th of August please contact me on with the subject line of the email called "EXTRAS" and provide a face and full body shot of yourself. Until then here are some backstage shots of the project so far ......
