Stella-Phoenix Photo Shoot
Posted on 01 September 2016
Coco Chanel once said "A girls must be two things: classy and fabulous".
When Tammin Sursok reached out to Bashery for an opportunity to style the upcoming launch of her children's line Stella Phoenix, that quote immediately came to mind. Stella Phoenix is definitely that - classy and very, very fabulous.
The location couldn't have been more dreamy - a gorgeous loft in Downtown Los Angeles, overlooking our beautiful city of angels. The setting was dreamy, the photographer - the talented Erica Allen - was incredible, and in the corner my beloved miss Harlow (6 months at the time) was chillin' in nothing but a diaper. Before you think me an irresponsible mother, little missy had an enormous blow out on our way to the shoot, and while I was packing every shade of blush tulle you can imagine, I failed to bring a backup ensemble for my kid. Mom brain. Mom life. You win some, you lose some - though to be fair, it was the summer, it was hot as hell, so really, it ended up a blessing in disguise. But I digress...
The setting that Tammin envisioned was part dreamland, part little girl's paradise. We worked hard to bring it to life, all the while adding that extra "je ne sais quoi" to really put it over the top. Queue vintage suitcases, our signature tents, garlands, and even a toy car. Since there were so many tiny models running around, we made sure to create a space that was both pretty, but also interactive, because we all know long kids' attention spans are...
In the end, everyone was exhausted but so thrilled, because the final product was incredible, and if you don't believe me, check it out for yourselves:
I'd like to thank everyone at Stella Phoenix for letting Bashery take part in this special day. We love you guys!
