Text - Dom Read Photography - Flora Platt
I have been looking forward to getting a proper photoshoot done of my graduate collection! I had beautiful photos of the process of making the clothes and from Graduate Fashion Week but I never got round to arranging a stylised shoot to show off my garments.
Having reconnected with Flora at a networking event we hit it off straight away bouncing off each other’s energy!
I had been a little nervous about getting a shoot sorted, I felt like because it had been such a long time it needed to be something spectacular. I put a lot of pressure on it being good and this was stopping the ideas from flowing.
I realised I was over complicating what didn’t need to be complicated! It’s easy not to notice the beauty in the things you see every day. I spend so much of my time in my studio I wasn’t seeing what was before my eyes!!
We booked the shoot and the day got closer and closer. My brother came to visit and I drummed up the troops and it was go time!!
What I’m trying to say with this little blurb is don’t overthink to the point of analysis, paralysis! The ideas come from the doing, so book the shoot and work it out as you go along.
Don’t forget to keep an eye out for the wood when you are lost in the trees!
Cheers for reading!
