1950's Photoshoot

I am currently studying Fashion Industry Practice in Sallynoggin College and this week we headed out to the Bray Head Hotel to do a Photoshoot as part of one of our college assignments. The theme of the photoshoot was the 1950's. It was such a fun theme to do and we went in teams of 4's. My group went for an elegant/classy 50's look. We have yet to receive the photographers official shots from the day, However, until then here are some of the photographs that I took behind the scenes throughout the day.

The photoshoot took place at The Bray Head Hotel in Bray; Wicklow. We got a real "Shinning" vibe from it (The shinning twins didn't make an appearance unfortunatley..)

  The picture below is our moodboard for the shoot.
To the right is a picture of our table laid out with the outfit and our props, all set to get started!

The model on the day was Megan :)
The black dress is from, I found this stunning black veil on ebay and we decided to add volume to the dress by layering it with a leopard print under skirt, which gives it the full flared skirt and cinched in waist which was one of the most popular trends from this era.
My Favourite element of this outfit that we styled is the vintage black veil, as it adds such elegance and completes this hauntingly beautiful look.

The Make-up was chosen by our team and the make-up artists and hairdressers working on this shoot were fellow students from Sallynoggin College. We went for the classic 1950's red lip, dark defined eyebrows and sultry black flicks and lashes on the eyes, while keeping the skin light, simple and flawless.

The picture to the left is of Megan and I on the day of the shoot!

I hope that you all like the images and I will post the official photographers images when we get them!
