Now I have the backstage photos from the shoot I did for Lars Wallin last week. We prepared everything for the shoot, hair make up etc, at Lars Wallin’s showroom. Everything took longer than expected and we missed our time at location so finally we ended up shooting at Lars’ showroom. He has the most amazing showroom, I love how it’s decorated. Soft, light, open and glamorous.
Lars asked me if I wanted to be his etoall-model. That means that he uses my body to fit his pieces. He took my measurments and then make the dress fit my body like a glove. Right now he’s working on a new couture collection which will premiere in November at a big show! I was honoured to be asked to be in the making of his couture collection so of course I said yes. Lars is such a creative person, how he manages to mix all different textiles and fabrics on one dress and still make the composion breathtaking and inspiring. Each one of Lars Wallin’s pieces are inspiring cause he puts so much work and thought into it. I truly appreciate surrounding myself with inspiring people like that.
Lars was also asked to create a collection with a few furs in it, of course they catched my eye, you all know how much I adore fur and so we had a discussion about fur which was fun.
The shoot itself went well, when I haven’t been shooting in a while I’m always a slow starter but once I get into it I get it done fast. It was a lot of fun wearing his dresses and I’m excited to see the result, I hope I’ll feel satisfied with it, Lars too! The magazine is being sent to print tomorrow so it should be out soon!
Lars also has his own jewelry collection as well as interior design and leather jackets.
