Exciting times… Karl Bowman’s new ready-to-wear collection has just premiered at a pre-London Fashion Week runway show on Kings Road.
The lookbook brief called for mannequin-straight shots in matching front/back pairs, with all the emphasis on the cut and finish of the clothes, rather that the model and the poses. It was shot and edited to meet a razor’s edge of a deadline that we had planned to give Karl as much time as humanly (humanely?) possible to work on the outfits before he set off for London.
We shot on Saturday. The print deadline was Monday morning. Oh, and my wife’s birthday was on Sunday. The painstaking approach we’d taken in the studio meant that post was very straightforward and I spent about as much time waiting for saves and uploads as actually working on the shots. I’m pretty pleased with myself for producing clothing shots in the studio that require so little retouching. Although Saturday was a very long day, I did get some sleep, the client is happy and Kath is still talking to me. Win/win…
