Stay warm this winter
We have recently had a number of clients come in with products that will keep you cosy and warm through the winter months.
It’s that time of year again when the winter clothes come in all their glory.
Last week we had a chance to gasp, ooh and aah at Snow Finel’s newest collection.
Snow Finel are one of our oldest clients who have been with us almost from day one. We love their cothes, well made, but mostly we love the splashes of colour that draw the eye. Neon elbow patches or bright trims break up the functional suave simple colours.
It is Autumn, and this has been made abundantly clear by the collections that have come through our studio. A shift in trending colours, patterns, and palettes. If we’re being really honest though, we don’t mind, because some of this seasons fashion is just gorgeous.
One of the things we have had quite a lot of recently, is outdoor wear, walking and travel clothes. The kind of things that would look absolutely perfect whilst you aimed your shotgun.
We were absolutely chuffed to have some denim in from Blessed and Cursed!
With a state-of-the-art approach, the brand turns ordinary into extraordinary. The unique character of every product is shaped by an individual fusion of high-end performance denim, key-on-trend fit, cutting-edge design, and the expertise of how to create a flattering pair of jeans for every body shape.
Consumers want honesty. And traditionally the fashion market place has not been a particularly honest place. Plus-sized clothing is often shot on models who fall on the rather slim side. What this means when shopping online for plus-sized clothing is that you can’t get a real sense of what the clothes would look like.
Every fashion consumer is concerned with fit and flattering designs. So, it’s impractical for a shopper to gauge an item on a size 14 model when she actually wants to purchase a size 20.
When considering your product imagery you have to take into account the multiple purposes your imagery will be used.
You will need lifestyle imagery that can be used in line with your brand. This provides a distinct number of problems from choosing your model, and photographer, to sourcing locations, and planning each shot down to the finest details.
The big fashion market place is moving inexorably towards leading with model shots supported by product imagery. However, this is hard for smaller companies to compete with.
So with our full package, combining model shots with our Styleshoot machines we have a photography studio that can produce high quality model shots as well as simple product shots all in the same place, making the process of getting your photography much more efficient.
Amber identified a niche in the market when she began working from home. She lived in her beloved pjs, boyfriend shirts and oversized jumpers – the aim was to be comfortable, however this left her feeling a little caught out when the doorbell would ring. She wanted effortless clothing that would make her feel good in body and in mind.
Having found nothing that hit the spot, she recognised a growing need for easy to wear womenswear, that’s as comfortable as it is elegant, so created a collection of tailored silk clothing that would feel like her favourite pyjamas, but look like evening wear.
Intricate patterns aligned with intense, even opulent, colours set St Piece apart.
St Piece are a London based design studio specialising in luxury silk scarves and accessories for men and women. Founded in 2013 St Piece designs in their London studio before sending off to be printed and individually hand-rolled in Cheshire.
Their goal is to create ‘beautiful painting on luxury canvases of silk and cashmere’. And we might suggest they succeed.
Miss D boutique is a beautiful boutique store that sells fabulous, beautiful plus sized women’s clothing. These clothes have a focus on quality, and they are designed around people.
We love their range, from bold patterns to simplistic understated and elegant colours.
However, they had a problem, which was getting good photograph that shows the cut and style of the clothing on mannequin. With Plus-sized clothing still being a small (though growing) part of the fashion market, not every studio has a mannequin large enough and unless they want to spend a large amount of money purchasing one (then finding a place to store it and organising to get it to the studio for each shoot) their options were limited.
However, when they found out we had a plus-sized mannequin in our studio they were delighted.
We wheeled our mannequin into place by our vertical machine and set to work. The results… excellent.
