Last week something super exciting happened: We had our first in-house casting in the Nous Fashion Den with our dear friends at Swell! As California girls, we can’t get enough of their huge selection of clothing and accessories for a surf-oriented lifestyle. I mean, we don’t actually surf or anything, but that doesn’t stop us from heading to Swell whenever we need to up our beach-attire game! Plus, they update their collection daily, which is an absolute must for true shop-aholics like us.
Part of the functionality of our new space is to be able to provide next-level services for our beloved clients, including in-house photoshoots and castings. Nous Fashion Den castings in particular are designed to be both a convenient and luxe experience for our clients.
As you can see here, the process begins with all of the girls gathered in our open call area.
One by one, they head into the next room for some one-on-one time with the client. In this case, the lovely Dana Wimberly from Swell‘s core team was there to greet the girls and get to know them a little better. Dana sat casually on our pretty little couch (complete with sparkly authentic Moroccan textiles that we just can’t get enough of) and interviewed each girl. From the same seat, she also had an unobstructed view of the studio area, so she could watch the girls model after speaking with them. Our Art Department Director and in-house photographer Ashley was right there to have the girls do a mock-ecomm shoot so that Dana could sit back, relax, and watch them do their thing. Fabulous!
When building the studio space, we brought in the expert opinion of one of our favorite photographers, Ed McGowan, to help us get the lighting just right. He did a fantastic job, look at how perfect these casting photos of the girls come out! Of course, for ultra-convenience, we made sure to give Dana a thumb drive with all of the images to take with her back to Swell HQ.
Thanks Swell, for testing out our new space with us! We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!
