Beautiful model Amy had a fantastic photoshoot with Howard Ashton-Jones of PSB Photography, taking to both the studio and also various locations to create stunning new images for her portfolio. Amy has taken part in two fashion shows recently, and will be walking in Kakao By K's annual fashion show in just over a week! We have added a few of these to her online portfolio and we highly recommend you take a look. Fantastic work, Amy!
Nina built on her portfolio once more today in a studio photoshoot with talented photographer Siobhan Stewart. The shoot featured bright colours and movement, and after a sneak peek at the unedited files, we are definitely looking forward to seeing the finished images. Stay tuned!
31/10/2011 Kakao by K's Annual show
Today it was brought to our attention that the Edinburgh Fashion Show has unfortunately been postponed indefinitely from the 18th-20th November, though the models that were chosen will still be participating when it has been rescheduled. However, there is a silver lining! Five of our models- Nina, Lynn, Katy, Amy and new model Cynthia -have been picked to model in Kakao By K's annual show, which will take place on the 17th November at the Missoni Hotel.
28/10/2011 Model Training
Today we welcomed our new models to a catwalk training session with Poppy, Katy and Nina. We could see huge improvements even in this first session and all of the models are off to a great start! Everyone was also given a quick photo-session with Nina to build confidence and prepare them for their portfolio shoots in the near future. A big thank you to all who attended, you were fantastic!
24/10/2011 Monochrome Shoot
Talented Lynn took part in another photoshoot today, this time with skilled photographer Gabriela Silveira and make-up artist Sarah Kane to create a series of gorgeous and colourful square-format images. The series is titled "Monochrome" due to Gabriela's use of a single colour of props and clothing for each of the shots. We think the products so far look fantastic! Don't you think so too?
20/10/2011 Down to a fine art
Today saw beautiful model Nina letting make-up artistry student Caroline Stewart loose with her make-up kit to create two completely different looks for her portfolio, photographed by the talented Lee Howell. The first look featured bright colours, feathers and sculpted hair, while the second look was a more gothic style (just in time for Halloween!) with fake eyelashes, paint pigments and big hair. Keep an eye on Nina's portfolio for the new images, which will be up as soon as they become available.

17/10/2011 Photoshoot at rick's hotel edinburgh
One of our most experienced photographic models, Lynn, had a very successful photoshoot on Saturday 15th with Lee Howell Photography at the luxurious Rick's Boutique Hotel in Edinburgh. With styling courtesy of Lady Jojo's Boutique and Mairi Brunning Millinery, the shoot was heavily influenced by classic 1940's romance movies, but with a current fashion edge. We have seen a couple of the sneak peeks from this shoot and can't wait to see more- fabulous work Lynn!
