Behind the Scenes of “Sounds of Change” Fashion Editorial

Our Asian Beauty themed editorial, Sounds of Change, took the VIVA GLAM team to the rolling hills of Calabasas, CA. Climbing hilly terrain to location is nothing new for the Dream Team. In fact, we have travelled far distances and crossed harsh landscapes all in the name of getting the perfect shot. But this time, we did it with a 5 ft. musical harp! The harp slowly trekked a quarter of a mile from basecamp up a windy hill to an impressive field overlooking the city.

We chose to incorporate musical instruments into this fashion spread that included the large harp, flute, violin, concertina and ukulele. So in addition to the actual shoot, there was a lot of prep work searching out these specific instruments. Visits to private homes, prop houses and professional musicians took place in the weeks ahead of the shoot.

Beautiful hand-sewn couture gowns were provided by Aneroc Designs. These dresses were hand-painted and painstakingly hand embroidered for weeks ahead by the Aneroc Design team.

At the end of the day, we knew we had captured something exceptional. As the sun went down, smiling faces trekked back to base camp, instruments in tow, and hungrily hunted every last protein bar available!
