BEHIND THE SHOOT - MARIAM MOUSSA LOOKBOOK.

Hello Everyone,
Its a busy week,but i took out my time to blog. *HAPPY ME*
I did promise to show "BEHIND THE SHOOT" pictures of the LookBook shoot i did with a Designer,Mariam Moussa.
Her Designs were Uber-fabulous and Versatile,so we decided to shoot it in a Garden.
I was The Stylist and Obi Somto was the Photographer.
I'd be posting actual pictures of the lookbook later,But Enjoy These funny and cute pictures.

me styling the model.. fixing one or two things on the dress.
the model was so brave... being nude in front of the male photographers. :D
hehehe.. they re gonna kill me for putting this up.!

woosshh.!! pretty,isnt she?
pulling some stunt pose.! buhahaha.! lovely.!


It was so hot,I had to put on a scarf..!!!
i really dont get why i had to pose like this.. LMAO!!



We all took turns to jump up in the Air... hehe.









We met a couple in the garden and we took a picture of them..!!! :D




It was fun all through.. we looked like refugees and i must confess,Styling is no glamourous Job. Amidst the stress of running from one place to another,changing the models and sorting the accessories,we still had fun.

THE WHOLE CREW..!!!!




Toodles,Fashion Phoenixes.
hehehe.!

ME,MYSELF AND I -- personal interview about myself and styling.

I have been known to research a lot and that helps me learn things I never knew. I have researched about stylists and every interview always made me closer to them. So in my own mind, I decided to ask myself questions and answer it too ,right here on this blog.

ME- I remember being home after graduation from high school,researching and plotting to become a makeup artist. BAM!! I stumbled upon fashion styling at age 17 and that was it.

*HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN STYLING?
ME- I actively started styling 6 months ago and it has been great so far.

*WHO HAVE BEEN YOUR FAVOURITE PHOTOGRAPHERS TO WORK WITH.?
ME-  I have worked with amazing photographers and my favourites are Obi somto, Peter Bello and Akinlolu Osinbajo. They are fun to work with and they always make me laugh.

*HOW LONG DID YOU WORK AS AN ASSISTANT.??
ME – I didn’t work as an assistant per se, I guess I just uped,made mistakes and learnt from them. Although,I still have guidance from friends in the fashion industry.

*WHERE DO YOU FIND INSPIRATION FROM YOUR WORK?
ME- Plenty of research, people, places, and also random images that just appears in my head.

*WHAT WAS YOUR MOST MEMORABLE EXPERIENCE AS A STYLIST?
ME- looking at the picture of a lookbook I styled. Such joy. I am sure more memorable experiences would still come.
styled by yours truly.. ME. :D
