What do I like most about any styling job? Being on set! I couldn’t be happier when I was invited to SARTO’s photoshoot to enjoy watching the making of their Summer 2017 campaign to mark their 5th Anniversary in Malta.
It was a sunny Sunday afternoon at the beginning of April when I visited the crew in the square of San Lawrenz Church in Birgu. And what a team it was! Photographer Kris Micallef that is no stranger to working with big names in the fashion industry behind the camera, top models Stephanie Hodgkins and Pedro Jorge Lemmos from Models M agency joined by international model Misa Patinzski together with Corina Corduneanu who between them have walked and modeled for Dolce&Gabbana, Jean Paul Gaultier, Dsquared2 and many other world-class designers.
I especially enjoyed meeting the world famous stylist Eli Van Poeyer who has rubbed shoulders with the likes of Rihanna and Anna Wintour, and also worked as fashion director for magazines like Marie Claire, Cosmopolitan, Glamour and other renowned publications. To complete the team hair was in the hands of Remi Hairdressing and make-up was applied by Chris Simpson.
In between the changes of clothes and locations I managed to have a quick chat with the girls. Stephanie just returned to modelling after having a baby boy and she never looked better! Time flies, he is already one year old!
I was nicely surprised how approachable and easy going Corina was. She visited Malta before with her sister but enjoys coming back. She is currently living in Milan and studies law while pursuing her modelling career. Isn’t that amazing? She also loves travelling and exploring new places around the world with her friends.
SARTO is Malta’s leading luxury multi-brand retailer, known for taking everything they do to the next level. The Sarto Life campaign is just another proof of their passion and dedication featuring brands like Dolce&Gabbana, Burberry, Alberta Ferretti and DSquared2 like we never seen them before!
