January is turning out to be yet another busy month at Anusha
, which is taking my mind off this unrelentingly miserable weather! Today I'm focusing on next month's photo shoot for our gorgeous spring and summer collections (I'm very excited - you're going to love what we've got in store!). Planning is essential for a fashion shoot to run smoothly, so my typical to-do list comprises:
Ensuring Anusha's regular photographer is available.
Booking hair and make-up artists.
Choosing a photo location.
Making sure designers' samples haven't been promised to other clients/the press on our preferred days.
Carefully working out each day's shoot list, so that we make the best use of the time once we're on location.
Sourcing props and accessories to use in the photos.
Sorting lunch arrangements for the shoot.
This may seem simple in theory, but with so many elements/people to coordinate (and with no control over the weather!), it's always a relief when everything comes together on the day.
