Working with Miss Universe and Miss World entrant Aquila Bergstrom

I was offered this styling opportunity from one of the teachers at my old fashion college, and was so excited/greatful to be involved in such a creative and fun shoot.

Aquila Bergstrom is a state finalist entrant from QLD for the Miss Universe pagent. She is also competing for Miss World Australia 2 days later, which makes her scheduele jam packed, so I was delighted to get to spend the whole day styling her yesterday. Aquila had 5 looks she wanted me to put together for this shoot, as we had the amazing Elizabeth Grinter (one of the best fashion photographers in Brisbane, in my opinion) booked for the day. Make-up and hair was done by the ever so talented, Katherine Saunders who is also a graduate from my fashion college. It was such a fun day collaborating with these 3 lovely ladies and the end product turned out amazing! Unfortunately I don’t have the finished pictures yet, but for now check out these behind the scenes photos. (Note: these were taken on the good ol’ trusty iphone and in no way compare to how beautiful the finished product is.)
