Behind the Scenes - Escape to Santorini Shoot

Behind the Scenes - Escape to Santorini Shoot

Tuesday the 17th of November, 2015

This shoot was a long time coming and a project that truly resulted in such stunning images that were beyond anything I’d imagined.

 Wanting to do a little street style shoot for social media I turned to one of the most stylish and beautiful people I know (inside and out) Lauren Dilena, Westfield and freelance stylist, whom I was lucky enough to have met a few years ago. Over a catch-up glass of wine, she generously offered to take an afternoon to model for me and capture some outfit images that would showcase Of Dreamers and Dancers in various summer styled outfits.

Cue two and a half months passing, with both of us going overseas, this idea took a little while to come to fruition but I am so glad we took our time because who knew the dream team we were going to pull together! I threw out an idea to my agent of involving my lovely stockist The Little Boutique to cross-promote. Before I knew it not only did we have them on board but also the oh-so-talented Danielle Symes of Something, Something fame. Danielle generously offered to not only lend clothes from her super successful online store but to also take over my role as photographer and shoot it too, a role I was more than happy to relinquish into such very capable hands. 

We met up at Dani's house on a sunny Spring Tuesday (so sunny I got burnt #paleproblems) and, showing us her go to locations, we drove around the area to roll out perfect image after perfect image. What was a street style shoot turned into campaign quality and 'Escape to Santorini' was born. 

It became a chance to show a new kind of styling for Of Dreamers and Dancers’ first collection, Night Reign, and refresh the website and social media with a dreamy summer bohemian vibe.

 I can't thank everyone who was involved enough for their time, creativity and support. I am lucky to know such wonderful people who would happily give up their time to help my brand and me in this capacity. I am so in awe of the talent Adelaide has to offer. I hope you enjoy seeing this little snapshot behind the scenes in the Adelaide turned Mediterranean back-streets.
