Behind the Scenes Photo Shoot: Styling for Daniel WellingtonCollaboration


Recently, I was approached by Swedish Watch Brand, Daniel Wellington, and was pleasantly surprised to find a new brand favorite! Stylish, elegant, and timeless this is a brand that delivers quickly, smoothly and effortlessly. 
 As I have written in yesterday's post, and in many other past articles, here on TALK FASHION, honest journalism is taken very seriously, and no products will ever be falsely promoted. Only the products of the highest standards and quality will be recommended to you. 


The watch I have chosen from Daniel Wellington Collection, is the 'Classy Sheffield', in Silver, 34 mm. It is priced at $199, and is made of excellent quality. The strap is of genuine leather, and the watch is delicately embellished with Swarovski crystals. I was drawn to this watch due to it's elegant glamour. It is equally feminine, professional, glitzy, and a bit masculine. The juxtaposed personalities in this watch is perfect for my character and a unique accessory to add to my equally interesting collection. 

Daniel Wellington has provided a personalized discount code: MayaTalksFashion 
It will provide all readers of Talk Fashion a 15% discount which will expire on March 15, 2015. https://www.danielwellington.com/global/

If you are going to buy only one watch, I suggest always starting with a leather strap. They are more durable, and age beautifully. Another interesting quality about this brand is that the straps within each collection are interchangeable. Currently, I have my eye on the blue and white strap! It would go perfectly with my wardrobe in the Summer. 

                      PHOTO SHOOT PREP-WORK
Planning a photo shoot is not something I take lightly. For my collaboration with Daniel Wellington, I chose a monochromatic color scheme that featured the colors black, white and grey. Also inspired by the Swarovski crystal elements, accessories are full glitz! 
Here are some stylist tips for setting up a photoshoot.


As a Stylist, the best way to get your creative juices flowing is to first decide a color scheme, and then start to pull all items that you think will work.


From there arrange all clothes on a rack, so you can easily see what you have. 






Organize accessories on a large table,  in categories of scarves, necklaces, earrings, rings, shoes, bags, sunglasses, and bracelets. 




Inspired by the Swarovski crystals used in the watch, most jewelry chosen was also inspired by it.


With everything organized you save time, and allows you to focus on the desired color scheme based around  the watch. It also inspires a lot of creativity because it is easy to see all the possibilities with patterns, and accessories. It may seem like a lot of work, but in the long run it is easier and more effective.


Stay tuned to tomorrow for pictures of the photoshoot and how I style Outfits around the watch!
