A glimpse at a Threads of Peru Photo Shoot

A glimpse at a Threads of Peru Photo Shoot

Ever wondered what happens behind the scenes of a photo shoot?  Especially a fair trade fashion shoot, shot by a ethical NGO in the high altitude city of Cusco, once the ancient capital of the Incas?   It’s definately not all the glamour and gorgeous photos that you see on the printed page!  Here are some candid behind the scenes shots of our fair trade fashion shoot when our intrepid group of volunteers took to the fabulous old world streets of Cusco to shoot our 2015 Catalogue.

Special thanks to our stylist Eliane Heutschi, photographers (and assistant stylists) Giulia Grassi and Alexa Jones, Shelyane Mulholland, our stock coordinator and of course the beautiful models Kaja, Tanja and Thomas. Sarah So kept the whole project rolling and without her the shoots wouldn’t have gone ahead so efficiently.
