Dream Packing

By Elaine Scully Styling

I styled a mega studio shoot last month for photographer Maria McGrail. We had three models and seventeen looks - it was a long and extremely exciting day of shooting. The clothes and accessories I sourced from; Vila, Only and Heatons in Fairgreen Shopping Centre Carlow; Tresor in Rathwood Garden Centre Tullow; and Kwilla in Kilkenny.

My vision for this shoot was to create summer holiday looks. I adore outfit planning for holidays (not so much the ironing and packing part) and having no immediate hopes of jetting off to somewhere sunny this summer, you could say, this was in effect me dreaming about packing.
