c.watson @ De La Sole -Fashion in Edinburgh

Not every good day begins with crawling out of bed at 5:30 a.m.
 
By 7 a.m I was picking up our makeup artist for the day, Gary Somerville, and then we headed off to Edinburgh. With a swap for a bus at the Park n Ride and a quick dash for coffee we arrived at De La Sole on Rose Street. Home of colourful boutique trainers and bespoke customisation of your favourite branded trainer, it would be the site, the following week of a new fashion gallery.
 
Christine, the designer whose clothes were starring today under her brand c.watson, let us in and we chatted and sat in wait for the two models, Gemma and Nicole. Nicola of nicci.n. also dropped by with her son, laden with her own hot drinks and nibbles. As she would be featuring clothes in the launch, we had also arranged for a few pictures by the shop with clothes by both designers.
 
Katy, the owner also stopped by, with a look of horror as we occupied her seating area and messed up the back of the shop.
 
Meanwhile shopfitters bashed away upstairs preparing the first floor for its new role as a fashion mecca.
 
Gemma and Nicole appeared and Gemma was first to fall under Gary's brushes, powders and potions.
 
Once she was dressed in some of Christine's clothes Gemma and I nipped out to Princes Street Gardens for the first set of pictures. Although the low winter sun was out, there was a chill in the air, but Gemma suffered through it and struck some strong poses. Thanks to the need to return for Nicole, she had a chance to warm up though as we returned.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I took a few pictures inside the shop itself, with Gemma still in her first outfit and Nicole in a coral dress and corset by nicci.n. The shop's design, using empty frames to highlight the tailored trainers gave me an interesting wall to play with. I could have done with an extra light, or my studio lights to balance it properly, but I was happy with the results. Outside the shop we got a few pics with the ladies in both outfits again and the shop name. Possibly for use in the press release for the shop's fashion launch.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
We returned to the shop and the two models changed into a pair of nifty trouser and top combinations. Christine had to go and fight the meter, so Katy stepped in at the last minute with some judicious pinning.
 
We then stepped back into the gardens. I decided that the sun was my friend, not my enemy, playing with flare, the light through leaves. Gary was on hand for some extra touches and to make a change to Gemma's hair and Christine kept him company and handed out leaflets for the shop.
 
 
 
They'd drained the big fountain so we rebelled a little and climbed up, with some trepidation and some slightly muddy shoes. Nicole and Gemma were surprisingly cool under the occasional gaze of the passing Edinburghers and consumate professionals.
 
The final shots of the day were on the big stage (after climbing over a fence).
 
Our day was brought to an end by Christine's need to avoid traffic wardens, so we hurried back to the shop for a return to normal clothes.
 
The four of us, Gary, Gemma, Nicole and I, walked back to our respective destinations, but ended up answering Gemma's desperate call for pizza and shared a double pepperoni with extra cheese. An agreeable time was spent in good company before we finally parted ways properly.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Gary and I made a slight detour to Greyfriars to collect clothes from the lovely Jenny of Velvet Elvis before waiting for an age for our bus back to the Park n Ride. The long day had caught up with the both of us, but I think he was still conscious when I dropped him off.
After seeing Gemma and Nicole exercise their skills at modelling, I can't wait until next week when I get to take pictures of more of the Perfectly Petite models.
 
We were blessed with a sunny day in November, and had a great old time.
