Winter sunshine on the White Isle
posted on Monday, 15th October 2012 | find under
I've just arrived back from a successful SS13 shoot in Formentera, an island just off Ibiza. The theme was based around scuba and surf with an overarching Hamptons beachy vibe. We'd already shot dance and yoga in big, beautiful hall in London, in collaboration with the English National Ballet and yogis from Triyoga.
In Ibiza we were joined by Team GB beach volleyballer, Zara Dampney (with a body to die for, talk about fit being the new it!) who modelled fantastically for us. As did Riley (a beautiful blond angel face with attitude plus the piercings and tattoos to match), who sprinted for her county up until two years ago.
I absolutely love working with real athletes, dancers and yogis all at the top of their fields. They have the most awesomely toned bodies and can-do attitude that's just so refreshing. It's also up to us to continue the amazing legacy that the London 2012 Olympics has left behind, by promoting athletes and inspiring more women to get out and do sport. Not to mention the fact that it was super nice being in a warm sunny place at this time of year!
