We promised, we’d be back and last weekend; we got to fulfill that promise! Miami B**ch…that’s Beach, by the way! Got ya!

Dolls of Decadence graced the shores of Miami again, for an early morning beach shoot. A super early start at 5.30am, meant the team got to see the sun rising on the vibrant city.

Sun, seas, beautiful views….and wind- it was actually pretty windy too. But hey! We’re from the UK, so I guess we’re pretty used to the wind…and rain and snow!

Our team for the shoot included model Ashley von, photographer Asa Garvin III and assistant/momager to Ashley, Michelle Mowatt.

We had the pleasure of meeting both Asa and Ashley on our last pit stop in Miami, back in  2013, when we showcased our S/S13 collection ‘Finally Exhaled‘ at Miami Metropolitan International Fashion Week. Both boasting excellent portfolios, along with adorable personalities and a driven hardworking ethics. With all these check boxes ticked. We were estastic to be working with them again!

The concept and art direction of the campaign: White here, White now- Dolls of Decadence’s Miami Invasion was created by creative director, Paulinah and featured our S CURVE and ENVY ME swimsuits.

 

It turned out to be a short, sharp shoot (by fashion shoot standards); literally pow, pow, pow. Ashley gave us fierce frame after fierce frame. Asa some how still managed over 700 clicks of his camera- if you are a photographer, you will be understand- equaling a mountain of images to get through for post production.

In the meantime, check out few of the images, we’ve managed to get together, so far from our quick  Stateside rendezvous.
