This is a little time travel. I had errands on Saturday, relating to Sunday's shoot. I met Domonique in Glasgow just after 9:30 for a quick visit to Melissa Amy Hopkins to pick out a couple of dresses for the shoot. I was then to go and vsit Melle Cloche just before closing, to borrow some accessories for the shoot. This left me with the whole middle of the day to kill.
I'd heard about the Oohfashion event launch on the Blank Canvas group on Facebook. I decided a wee detour in the rain wouldn't go amiss, especially with some promises of models sporting designs from their forthcoming catwalk show. The weather dried, as it often does, on passing Harthill services.
I took the park and ride to avoid the perils of Edinburgh parking and tram diversions, changing buses at the zoo due to a nutter threatening the driver with death for not stopping to pick him up at the Haymarket. It takes real determination in your average nutter to pursue a specific bus across a city just to make threats and then run away.
Calm restored I got off the bus and made my way to Braughton Street and the Union Gallery. I lurked for a little while, drowning in orange juice to restore my fluid balance after a hard walk across town.
I then introduced myself to Gary, head of the Oohfashion event team. A charming young guy with a real passion for his work. He was enthusiastic and really happy to welcome random passers by, such as myself, as well as more leigitmate visitors, friends and colleagues. He introduced me to the three gorgeous models who were sporting designs by Kakao by K and Psycho Moda, along with some hair pieces by Rene Walrus.
Brazen photographer that I am I then swept them away one by one for a wee mini shoot in the immediate area around the gallery. First up was Anna in an outfit by Alison at Psycho Moda. We tried a few odds and ends of looks and shots and ended up with these ones. I was quite chuffed when the designer contacted me later about using some of them! Next up were Bex and Lynn, before finally stealing them from another photographer for a shot of all 3 together.
