Having been exclusively invited to check out the photoshoot for the new Vicky Martin collection, Hannah Richardson blogs from behind the scenes about her day at the 1884 restaurant.
It's an early start on set for the photoshoot, and when I arrive at 9.30 in the morning the photographers and models are already prepped and ready to begin. The only thing left now is for Vicky to arrive.
Whilst we wait I have a quick chat with models Zara and Orla in the dressing room. The room is full of rows of shoes, with lace and sequins filling the clothing racks. Both girls are excited to wear the designs, and of course to meet Vicky herself.
A few minutes later she arrives, and straight away it begins. It's going to be a long day with so many different outfits to shoot! Helping the models in to their first looks, everyone is eager to see what the designs will look like.
They do not disappoint. For the first look of the day, Zara walks on set in a white jersey crop top and matching midi skirt. Swarovski crystals are dotted over the designs, and the material is gathered around the stomach to flatter the figure.
This first outfit shows how versatile Vicky's designs are. After first being shot as a crop top, the top is pulled down so no stomach is showing, making it perfect for any age or size.
After the first look is shot, the models and photographer fall in to the swing of things, and each look is finished quicker than the next. The models need little instruction, and from looking at the designs it is pretty clear that the collection is going to be a success.
