OKEY, ARE YOU READY for another round? Here is the story from when I as the first blogger in the world did my own collection for H&M, part two!
The presentation – Time for the next presentation, this time for the photographer Peter Gehrke. I was surprised when I got to the H&M office that morning since I didn’t expect 10 people to sit there. My nerves was pretty thrilled since I didn’t know what Peter actually wanted me to talk about, other than show, for the first time ever, my collection (!). I was super-nervous and I’m sure I got red spots on my neck, as always do when I get nervous (I always starts to scratch my neck for some reason!). Anyways, it went well. And we decided a date for the shoot. Tuesday the week after. And no one was happier then me since Tuesdays are my favorite day!
Tuesday – I wake up early, really early. I got in to a cab that was waiting outside my apartment. I was wearing my lovely Reebook high top sneakers (I miss them!). I finally arrived after 20 minutes. The amazing team from H&M PR were there too. I got my hair done first, right away. They kept talking about making it shorter, and I totally agreed. Erika, the hairstylist also made a braid, to make it look thinner. I guess I’m pretty lucky to have to make it thinner instead of adding extensions. After we did my hair, we did my make up and I ended up super happy with the result.
We were going to take a total of four pictures. I chose my four favorite looks. The all-white look, my silver suit, the dress and my leather jacket. The team agreed with me, thank God.
Peter, the photographer was trying to make me understand what he wanted me to do, and how to do that… I’m lucky I can always say I’m not a model so that people can’t expect me to do more than my best… hehe.
I was pretty quiet during the day, I just did everything I was told to do. I knew I was working with professionals and I trust them and their work. We were done around 7 pm, and I was super happy with the results! And I was so happy that it was finally “over” Not over… I would do it over and over again, but to the fact that I can now look at the finished collection, feel proud of it and be happy with how the pictures turned out. You know, the pictures are always MORE than important.
