This week we are preparing for a fashion editorial shoot for Connecticut Bride– packed with lots of historical Connecticut references and inspired by Modern Trousseau’s newest collection. We can’t wait to share in the upcoming June issue!
Last fall, Connecticut Bride asked our creative group to design a fashion shoot for their magazine. We had been tossing around the idea of a Midsummer Nights Dream photoshoot for some time– and quickly decided that this would be the muse for our shoot! The challenge: how do you shoot at the end of October, outside, and make it look like summer? The answer: Carla Ten Eyck.
Our team came up with several different looks through out the day– pulled together by Beth Chapman of The White Dress by the shore and her team. Our first look was inspired by one of my favorite paintings, The Swing by Jean-Honore Fragonard. The infamy of this painting is the relationships between the characters. The man in front of the woman is having an affair with her, while the man lovingly pushing her is her husband.
We also designed an inspiration board for our shoot, which I’ll share in the next post!
