I have been assisting an amazing stylist named Carlo Aquino for the past two weeks.
His style distinctively suits mine and I am so glad I was able to take part in this shoot we shot a couple of days ago. It was tough running around the streets of Sheung Wan and Central with giant bags of Balmain, Givenchy, Toga, Alexander Wang and Jil Stuart, especially being only 5 ft 6 in the blazing humidity that has taken over Hong Kong!
Photographer and make-up artist from Europe, Valentina Pezzo and Christian Merz, who have publications in Vogue Italia, were only intown for a short visit and lucky for me i was able to assist this shoot with Carlo.
Valentina was really quick with her shots so it was definitely a blessing that we managed to wrap it up in seven hours!
It was such a great learning experience assisting Carlo on this shoot!
It was quite a fun adventure picking the pieces at Joyce and Lane Crawford i felt as if i had gone into some shoppers trance and really felt like i was in my element.
Carlo didn't really have a concept he could express in words but as we started picking pieces it slowly turned into 'Sporty Bondage'.
The shoot is meant to be published by some London mag i have no idea about!
I cannot wait to see it published!!
Here are a few photos Carlo and I took of the sexy bianca balti- ish Gabriella behind the scene!!
