Even though September has whizzed into our lives here in Cornwall and we are dreaming about our summer holidays and planning our next ones (already) We think now is the time to show you all what happens behind the scenes on our incredible location shoots and what a blast we have together.
Our Autumn Winter 2016 model is Fran. She has an incredible aura and was constantly cracking us all up. We adored her natural freckles and she was a dream to style and work with. Our director Vicky took Fran under her wing and made sure she wasn’t blown away across the Cornish moorland.
Fran kept a constant beautiful smile on her face even with us constantly changing her and moving her around the moors. It was April but felt like November. She kept warm in our velvet Aurora coat and spiced red cord shift dress.
Luckily, director Duncan arrived with hot supplies mid-morning. Hot tea (Fair Trade of course) and flasks of warmth put a spring back in our step as we continued to shoot our latest collections. Did you know that Duncan and Vicky met back packing in India over 25 years ago and because they shared the same love of Fair Trade and ethnic trinkets, Nomads was born?
Meet our sensational team; Our senior designer Kate (Left). She is our first ever In-house designer and has been with us for almost a year now. Kate works with an incredible manner, is calm as calm can be and has an outstanding eye for detail. Our director Vicky, oversees all of our design team brilliantly. She has a magical smile and her laugh is infectious. Fran, our current model was a dream to work with and instantly became part of our Nomads family. Simon is our fantastic photographer. He is so close to the whole team and has been shooting our location campaigns for years now. He lights up a room and we are always sad to say goodbye! Kate, our expert hair and make-up stylist never misses a trick and keeps us very motivated. Finally, Sian, our newest member of the team (taking the photograph) who is Kate’s right hand woman.
Vicky always makes sure we are fed and watered throughout our shoots. She cooks the most sensational soups, all grown in her beautiful garden. This shoot we had cauliflower and cheese soup with sourdough bread and a bit more cheese.
Post lunch we always have a little burst of energy and a funny five minutes. Simon often uses this time to review and check our work of the day as well as to refocus the team. We are always in such high spirits.
We love this image of both Kates and Fran. It was lovely when the sunshine came out. Working outside in the fresh air for the shoot was great for our souls, but made the hair and styling hard work for the team. Nomads V mother nature…
We finished each day on a high in Duncan and Vicky’s magical kitchen with a cider and more excellent food. Duncan makes a mean curry from scratch.
