MYNT NEWS: BEHIND THE SCENES
Posted: Oct 13 2014
Our second fall collection is almost ready to launch online and in stores. But first, that called for a photo shoot! We can’t show you any new pieces just yet, but here are a few outtakes from our Fall 2 shoot, along with some behind the scenes snippets.
As they say, it takes a team! Before the day of the shoot, we pulled together our team of stylists, hair and makeup, photographer, art director and photo assistants. They brought their expertise and ingenuity to create our fall looks, which we’re going to highlight in an upcoming blog post when the collection goes live so be sure to check back with us for all their insider tips.
The day started early, at 8am, but with smiles and an air of excitement as everyone arrived.
First up, hair and makeup. The team decided that the Mynt woman goes for a simpler but modern beauty routine, which translated into working with the models’ own hair texture and going for neutral makeup.
While the models were getting prepped, the styling team started steaming and prepping clothes to be camera ready. They also laid out their assortment of accessories, jewelry and shoes to pair with different looks. The photo crew set up the lighting.
If you’ve ever wondered what a photo shoot looks like, here are some shots.
Our stylist Marcus paired the first looks together, dressed the models and the magic started happening. After over two hours of prep, the girls started moving and grooving, showing off the new lines and cuts of the collection.
During the shoot, our models and crew jammed to One Republic, Rihanna and a mix that got our Art Director Rebecca up and dancing.
We broke for lunch at around noon, eating together and laughing along the way. (We’re still dreaming about the brownies we picked at!)
The afternoon rolled on, with the models wearing high heels the whole time and never complaining.
At 6pm, it was a wrap! Another successful shoot, and we CAN’T WAIT to show you the new collection. Stay tuned!
