This week, on Halloween, I was invited to assist a photoshoot for the Autumn/Winter issue of Betty magazine. I had to be up at 6:30am to be in Hackney for 9am at Mare Street Studios.
The studio was perfection - pretty 1970s decor and this room was interior my dream come true.
Scrumptious looking (but inedible) sushi from one of the shots.
The shoot was still life inspired by indie film icons like Ghost World, Pretty in Pink and 500 Days of Summer. Each shot had samples given by different PR companies, which made up outfits and were accompanied by paper-crafted objects by Hattie Newman.
We spent 7 hours approximately in the studio then we jumped on a tube back to central London to drop samples off at the PR companies. After the busy day Charlotte (the editor of Betty) took me to a press day at a hotel in Mayfair. We nipped in had a cheeky cocktail and browsed the latest season of Tatty Devine.
