Our Street Team in Soho

Last week we were lucky enough to work with Aspinal of London, and their talented PR and media partners, on their LFW SS16 campaign.
We filmed bees and other insects, buzzing around Aspinal’s botanical SS16 collection, in a beautiful late-summer garden in Sussex, using a drone. We created some footage and images at the SS16 launch party.
The Street Team captured some fresh new AW15 looks, out and about in Soho, Covent Garden, and the West End. Even though it poured with rain (as it did when we filmed with Estee Lauder in Boxpark), it was huge fun, with plenty of bants along the way.
Back to AW15.
Here’s a terrific video Illamasqua’s Zoe, showing AW15 make up using the Earth Elements range
