A few weeks ago on a faux Brisbane winter day we shot the spring 15’ campaign. The Brisbane Botanic Gardens, Mount Coot-tha was the perfect backdrop for our Enchanted Garden theme. We shot 10 spring outfits in about 2.5 hour to inspire your new season wardrobe.
Our beautiful model Margot arrived at 7am for hair and make-up by Bruce Rehbein. The look was blonde bombshell, drawing influences from 60’s sirens of the past. Big glamorous hair and striking cats eye make-up with pink tones.
The divine Miss M is law student and works at Petrol part-time. She is not a model, even though she could be! Petrol’s ethos is real clothes for real women.
The talented Isabel Stanfield who worked at Petrol part-time for 3 years while she studied at film school took the photos. It is amazing to work with someone who loves and understands fashion as much as we do, but also has the skills to capture the looks we created. Isabel has since followed her dream film career to Sydney.
Isabel’s partner Caleb also joined the shoot sharing his photography skills and chivalry. We had positioned Margot on the rock steps near the waterfall in the Japanese garden wearing an elegant Martini gown (coming soon) when the sprinkler system turned on. Luckily Caleb was on hand with his light reflector to protect her (dress, hair and makeup) from the shower.
Since launching our online store earlier this year we have been trying to work out the the best way to capture the Petrol instore experience online. Everyday our customers appear instore and share with us their up-coming events. We then set to work creating outfits to meet their requirements. We hope our original images will inspire your looks for the new season. This is just a small selection of the beautiful new clothes, shoes and accessories being delivered daily. Bring on spring!
