Friday Oct 14th: Hot Voodoo - Piers Atkinson SS12 shot at Zandra Rhodes Penthouse
From one slice of Verhoeven colour to another .......... and this time an appearance for Piers Atkinson in the book and film for his SS12 collection Hot Voodoo. Piers invited a cluster of his most colourful friends along to Zandra Rhodes rainbow painted penthouse to model his new collection. Julie and I pitched up at our allotted time, inbetween Duggie Fields and Dudley O'Shaughnessy (Rhianna's new squeeze) to put on a hat and take place in Alun Davies jungle set. This tropical paradise had been planted in the middle of the spectrum decorated loft which you can see in Zaiba Jabbar's film of the shoot. Zaibba and Alun both appear in the final portraits for the book shot by Thomas Cooksey, engineered so that the art department were as much part of the final shots as the models ......... after all, the subjects and crew are all one in the end with Kim Howells at the helm!!!!
