I met Nicole months before this shoot. We were chatting over facebook messenger. She is the designer at Forgotten Lockett and I wanted to photograph the coat that she had made. At the time I didn't know she was also a model. In fact I had no idea what she looked like at all, I just thought her clothes were cool. Fast forward a few months and someone tells me she is the girl on the TV programme NZ's top designer or something like that. (I don't watch TV). Cool, she's out there doing it. Kudos.
Then I find out she is the model in some of her designer photos. Now I think she really has her shit together and when I finally met her she did. Here she is when we hired out a bach in Napier when I went up with my crew from The Fashion Creative for the weekend. She was one of the local models I got to shoot that day. We had a blast shooting together. We both agreed we will shoot again one day. What a shame we live so far apart.
