LPA Style - 80's Shoot with Nick Dolding

Natasha Freeman (LPA Style) recently embarked on a much anticipated project with photographer Nick Dolding (represented by Horton-Stephens). The inspiration for the shoot was a revival of the good ol' eighties....and what a revival it was! Working closely with Ellie Tobin (LPA Hair & Make-up) the girls had great fun making fake moustaches and beards and got through a lot of hairspray creating bouffants!

Natasha Freeman comments,

"I had great fun working with Nick on this shoot as we had been talking about doing this project for a long time. As I helped cast all the actors and talent for this shoot I was able to have ideas on how we were going to style them. We had a fairly loose brief on what we wanted to achieve but knew that when we saw the outfits it would all come together.

I spent about 4 days prepping props and wardrobe sourced from charity shops and specialist costumiers and hire companies. It was well worth it as the selection and choice was enormous. We could have gone on and on shooting even more. Working closely with Ellie we developed and created the characters, almost moulding them - the actors worked brilliantly at getting into character which I am sure come across in the images.

This may not be the end of this project as we would certainly produce more given the wardrobe we still have available!"
