I absolutely adore fashion, it may possibly have something to do with my first career as a fashion designer. Shooting fashion combines two of my passions – what a treat.
This shoot was for South Africa’s Oprah Magazine, my ultimate favourite team. I was shooting their O Fashion Awards editorial – 10 pages of fashion favourites.
Part of the shoot was the opening cover for the spread, with none other than the gorgeous Marie Clare. A stunning presence and so much energy, it was infectious. I, obviously, over-shot this series. She made the flowing royal purple gown, a Nicole Miller at Callaghan Collezioni, come alive. O Magazine’s fashion editor, Leila Petersen Gallant, styled three looks: paired with gold accessories; a cream blazer; or colour-blocked it against red and blue.
The essence of luxury and passion from this royal hue went up on the glamour charts with an on-trend edge.
