BTS: Lifestyle Asia Magazine Shoot
Every single time I take part in shoots, I make sure that I snap BTS photos so I can share the experience and for all my readers to get a glimpse of what goes on. For this post, I take you behind the scenes of my Lifestyle Asia shoot. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t ecstatic about this feature. I have always enjoyed flipping through the pages of this magazine. Aside from it being a lifestyle magazine, they too are very fashionably inclined. I can’t put into words how thankful I am for the amazing opportunity to be part of their Influencer Issue. They featured young people who they thought were the big influencers this coming year. Now, how awesome is that, right? This is definitely a big deal for me and I am extremely proud to be chosen to be part of that list. I hope you enjoy this photo diary of what happened during the shoot!
The first part of the shoot was done inside a restaurant/bar of the Maxim’s Hotel. If you notice the mood of the photos is quite serious and more sophisticated. I tried my best to deliver. Do check out the magazine and let me know how you find it! I’d love to hear from all of your by leaving comments below.
We were given pegs of how they wanted us to be dressed for the shoot. I made sure I wore the perfect gown, so I paid Pablo Cabahug a visit at his shop. He allowed me to pullout a couple of pieces and one of them is this gorgeous pink-ish-nude gown which had this great slit and amazing back detail! The stylist of the shoot fell in love with it, I mean, who wouldn’t? The colour and the details are out of this world.
The second set was done by the pool and this time it was more on the playful and fun side. The original layout plan was for me to jump into the pool. YES, imagine my jumping into the pool — thing is, the fact that my dress was a pullout made me have to turn down the plan. If only I knew I would have brought something that can be submerged in water. It would’ve been a really cool idea if you ask me!!
I wish I looked like this everyday.. *siiiiiiiiiiiiiiiigh*
The power of styling! My gown turned into a dress. We couldn’t risk getting it wet. So the stylist had to tie it behind me, away from the water. We had to improvise all for the sake of that one perfect shot!
I hope you can all head on over to the closest magazine stand or bookstore to grab yourself a copy! Before I end this post.. Again, I’d like to say a massive thank you to everyone behind Lifestyle Asia for giving me the privilege to be called one of your young influencers. I am truly grateful. This is a shoot and feature that will always be very dear to me. Looking forward to working with everyone again (hopefully in the very near future)!
