photoshoot behind the scenes: part one

i mentioned a couple of weeks ago that i was taking part in a fashion editorial shoot (and my very first one at that). it's for the november issue of fiasco magazine and i was lucky enough to be the assistant stylist for the shoot. the theme of the shoot was 'the dreamers', inspired by the movie by bertolucci. we shot at a  magically beautiful country house on the outskirts of paris. it's taken me a long time to get the photos all sorted and edited but finally, here they are. i hope you will forgive the quality, i only had my little compact with me on that day. j'ai parlé il y a quelques semaines que j'allais faire partie d'un shooting de mode (et en plus c'était ma première fois). c'est pour le numéro de novembre de fiasco magazine et j'avais la chance d'être l'assistante styliste. le thème du shoot était the dreamers' inspiré du film de bertolucci. on a fait le shooting dans une magnifique maison de campagne en dehors de paris. ça m'a pris un peu de temps pour organiser et éditer les photos mais enfin, voilà. j'espère que vous me pardonnerez au niveau de la qualité, j'avais seulement mon petit compact sur moi ce jour-là.
