Last issue, we were inspired by the silver screen…this issue, for our styled shoots, we took our inspiration from the world of music and designed styled shoots after these songs: “A Thousand Years” by Christina Perri; “Sugar” by Maroon 5; “Here Comes the Sun” by The Beatles; “You Make Loving Fun” by Fleetwood Mac; and “Love You Till the End” by the Pogues.
We partnered with five different design teams for each of them, and in the coming weeks, we’ll share the layouts from the magazine, we’ll introduce you to our real people “models,” share some behind-the-scenes photos and even more shots from our styled shoots.
As Gigi of Gigi Mallatt Events recalls, “The inspiration for this shoot was to highlight Christina Perri’s song, ‘A Thousand Years,’ through the use of ethereal and glamorous features. From the colors and textures used, we set a natural feel throughout the overall design.” We couldn’t agree more! So without further ado…”A Thousand Years!”
