Xposé Shoot

So guys, here's my post on the Xposé shoot I assisted with over Monday and Tuesday.

What Irene and I had to do was to decide on four trends and pull two outfits from each trend. Then there would be a panel of 6 women varying in age and they would voice their opinions on each look, then pick their preferred one. We gathered all the clothes together on Monday and the shooting was on Tuesday. All clothes were taken from stores in the Pavilions Shopping Centre, Swords. The shooting also took place in the centre.

So Monday was great! Tiring, but great. Irene and I browsed around the stores to get an idea of what was there, then we went back and pulled our looks for our final four trends for the shoot. We ended up choosing:  Monochrome, Oriental, 60's and 90's Grunge.

Tuesday was the day of the shoot, we organised all the looks and accessories then put each look on the models to see how it looked. All looks turned out really well! TV3 arrived to take a few shots of the models then Glenda Gilson came to interview the panel of women.

So here are a few snaps I took on the day

In the changing room with all the glorious clothes!

Zara shoe heaven!

I NEED these boots from River Island. Jeffrey Campbell have a more expensive pair. Either will do..Absolutely in LOOOVE.

Some behind the scenes snaps

And now for the looks!
Everything in these two outfits are from Zara apart from the gold torc on the right outfit which is from Mango

Everything once again is from Zara. Lynn (model on right) is wearing shoes from River Island which cannot be seen but are black and white studded flatform sandals

Jamie Lee (model on right) is wearing mostly Zara, Coat and glasses are from Mango. Lynn is wearing Zara dress and shoes, bag is from Mango, hair band from Claire's Accessories and earrings are Vero Moda

Both outfits are all River Island

 So there are the looks. It probably seems really easy to put them all together but it's actually quite tough. Choosing one outfit for a certain trend would be easier, but because we had to do two, we wanted to create two completely different looks but still keeping in sync with the trend. While keeping with the trend we had to style to cater for Xposé viewers and the judging panel which together can be between 18-50+

Me, Irene, Lynn, Jamie Lee and Glenda - Don't you just love posing beside beautiful, tall, slim models?

 So that's it! I'd like to thank Irene for taking me on as her assistant it was such a good experience and I'm itching to do it again. She was SO nice, helpful and down to earth. Although vintage is her thing she has such a good eye for styling on the high street. And watching her speak to Glenda about the trends; it just came out so fluidly - was really interesting to listen to. The rest of the crew were all so friendly and easy to chat to - it was a successful two days all in all.

So, which outfit was your favourite? Or did you like any? Comments and followers and much appreciated!
