Mission Accomplished!

 It all started with a phone call from a film director friend and ended with us styling a video for hot new band Toodar. If their song "Ten Paces" doesn't make top five in the charts we'll eat our handbags!

The band -TOODAR

VJA style a video? Simple we thought - we'll sources clothes and accessories and work our magic. Well if only it was that easy. We had four  glamorous actresses to style as Grecian Goddesses. Yikes! 

Well this was no mean feat as this meant designing AND making the dresses from scratch, no patterns, no sewing machine (don't ask) and just armed with Ola's great sketches, and then sew them all by hand!  

There were long nights and early mornings before the 1st fittings and just before the shoot on Sat but it's been so worth it.

We walked on set on Sat morning to see a large film crew who'd been busy at work since sunrise. Toodar created the video treatment of a sumptuous, decadent feast and the final set looked amazing

 But as you can see below we did it and Toodar loved them (phew!). What do you think?
   Would we do this all again? Absolutely!
