THE PHOTOSHOOT

 

This photoshoot was a last minute production. Meaning, a long stream of text messages over the weekend and somehow everything falling perfectly into place by Monday. Turns out that we can do great things when being spontaneous. Although most of the credit goes to our amazing photographer, Emily Rose Bernu, and model, Savanna Vang, who were able to come in last minute and perform without flaw!

It was a perfect day for a photoshoot in the warehouse building of the HARDT JEWELRY showroom. The natural light coming through the window with the black backdrop gave us the dramatic and edgy effect we were looking for. 

With all these factors the style of Moth Oddities and HARDT jewelry was able to shine! The vintage/recycled Fall fashion clothing from Moth Oddities gave us so many interesting textures; velvet, gold patterns, silver beads, and we could not leave out the FUR! Blending these with layers of HARDT JEWELRY to add a modern chic edge really made our statement!
