LLG Fashion: Behind the Scenes on the Diesel Shoot

by Sasha Wilkins on November 18, 2011 · 8 comments


When I ran the last series of behind the scenes shots from the Diesel shoot, obviously I couldn’t show you any of me face on in the clothes, so here are the backstage photos with me in them.

Above: Never underestimate the amount of people it takes to produce a fashion shoot. In this photo are the photographer, his two assistants – (they deal with lighting & digital), the hair & make up artists, two Grazia staff, the Diesel fashion assistant and a stylist. (Although I was putting the looks together, the stylist is also responsible for overseeing the total look on set, and making sure the clothes look & hang perfectly in each shot, as well as suggesting outfit tweeks.)


Above: Elnett, Elnett & more Elnett.


You know that thing they say about never working with children & animals? This beautiful Husky was supposed to be running away with me, as per the final published shot, but 99% of the images had him sitting looking very happy and relaxed at my feet. He only started moving when I wasn’t expecting it.

Below: me pretending to be dragged. Husky standing still grinning as below.


Below: Husky unexpectedly on the move. Sasha falls over her feet.


Below: What you can’t see are all the passersby stopping to watch me being primped in the middle of a Notting Hill Street.



Below: Taking light meter readings. This happens a lot on a day when the sun goes in and out of the clouds.

Looks like it was fun… and a really gorgeous Fall day in London!! The yellow/orange leaves are quite striking.

Beautiful pictures. If you ever need another grey and white dog to borrow, I have one! Bit smaller than the husky though! There’s a great video on Youtube of a husky saying I love you – have you seen it?
