Karl Bowman 2013: The Full Collection

Karl Bowman 2013: The Full Collection

Last night was the runway show and official unveiling of Karl Bowman’s stunning new collection (more about the show itself very soon). I spent last Sunday in the studio with Karl, makeup artist Jaye Adams and models Debbie Ingram and Alex Pratt, shooting the entire collection. The beginning of last week was taken up editing and retouching them. Now that the show is done and dusted I’m allowed to start showing the world what we did.

The set below is the uniform, straight-on, complete collection. These shots are my personal picks from the day and will almost certainly be a slightly different from those chosen by Mr Bowman for the official set. But hey, this is my site…

A range or other feature images from the shoot is also in the works and will be posted here over the next few weeks.

I would like to say a huge thank you to the models for their incredible patience and stamina. It was a ridiculously long day, and those shoes really aren’t made for walking that many miles… Both Debbie and Alex were absolute professionals and remained on top form right up to the very last shot. And to Jaye, whose brilliant makeup work made retouching a pleasure (and more importably feasible in the time we had).

Stay posted for more about how (and why) we shot these images, and shots of last night’s show, from the catwalk and behind the scenes…
