Pierrot-Zebra shoot outtakes

Of course you already know of my ecstatic love and admiration for Sabrina Cichy, fairytale photographer and whimsical wunderkind, and Lotte Groeneweg, stunning avant garde model and stylist extraordinaire…

But now I am hopelessly head-over-heels!

Awhile back, Sabrina and Lotte chatted with me about collaborating on a Pierrot inspired shoot they were designing and, naturally, I was beyond excited.  Not to mention that a zebra named Zorro would be Lotte’s shooting partner!  Talk about fairytale.  So this past week, the girls got together and made magic in the meadows near Brussels.  Check out some behind-the-scenes footage from my design process and Sabrina and Lotte’s (and Zorro’s) shoot!

  1. I love pierrots – I used tO have a beautiful doll, duvet set & cushion. I had totally forgotten about it so thank you for reminding me – gorgeous tulle skirt as always. Cx

    • Oh that’s amazing and delightful!! The model (Lotte) actually came up with the inspiration and turned me on to the whole idea. But now that you mention there’s a duvet, I am going to have to go on a hunt for a pierrot bedroom set. Although the doll might frighten me a bit, haha. Too many Stephen King novels/movies.
