A POLAROID STORY x FRESHCOTTON x BLEND MAGAZINE
Amsterdam, Oktober 2010
The year is coming to its end, and so is this little blog’s content… Don’t worry. I still have a few small surprises in store, but I’ll leave that for next week. For now, I wanted to share this little press feature with you all.
A while ago I was invited to come to AMSTERDAM (gotta love my AmsterDajumn! troopers) to participate in a little experiment and make an editorial for BLEND MAGAZINE together with five other bloggers: Dennis from GET YOUR PLANE RIGHT ON TIME – Alvar from SWURDIN – Cindy from COME OVER TO THE DARK SIDE WE HAVE CANDY – Serena from BEAUTYLAB & the notorious Branko from well… DENNIS BRANKO I was the only Belgian gal invited amongst the other fellow invitees, so I was pretty nervous.
We were asked to construct a complete editorial for one of my favorite Dutch magazines called BLEND MAGAZINE with garment from a renowned Dutch online store called FRESHCOTTON. Together with my bestie SABINE PEETERS who ended up helping out on the shoot, we travelled to Amsterdam. It turned out to be a very long and challenging day and I even unexpectedly ended up in the model department replacing a model that didn’t show up. Oh well… Here’s the visual recap of that day….
