Bomani Woman: Behind the Scenes

Last Sunday I headed down to Workrate Studio in Bethnal Green to shoot the Bomani Woman faux septum ring collection.

Anyone who has organised a photoshoot knows that putting together the right team is both challenging and essential but I can honest say that I managed to put together a dream team. Model Areej and hair stylist Brenda are both friends of mine and the rest of the gang I found on Model Mayhem. Each one of the team injected their talent and skills into the shoot from start to finish and it was such an amazing process to be apart of.

Meet the creative team:

Photographers: Allure Photography (Chris and Tanu)
Make-up Artist: Sarah Elizabeth Nobel
Hair Stylist: Brenda Ford
Models: Areej, Donja and Estelle
Stylist: Elisha Francis
Wardrobe: Beverley Heels Vintage
Jewellery: Elisha Francis London

The concept for the shoot was Modern Princess Warrior for which I put together a few mood boards to share my ideas to the team prior to the shoot.

I had planned three looks for each model; natural goddess, modern tribal queen and glamorous vintage vixen. 

Sarah and Brenda worked their magic on the models, whilst Chris and Tanu prepared the set and I coordinated the wardrobe and accessories.

Each model took their turn in front of the camera and lucky for us we had two photographers capturing every moment. The models moved with ease and grace, embodying the Goddess, Tribal Queen and Vintage Vixen capturing every side of the Bomani Woman.

Bomani Woman | Faux Septum Rings

This summer see the release of the Bomani Woman faux septum rings.
Inspired by ancient tribal body adornment these clip-on nose rings allow the modern woman to adopt this fierce look anytime she desires.

What is a BOMANI WOMAN?
She is fabulous, fierce and focused.
She is part of a tribe that challenges the status quo, she has a rebel heart and is not afraid of being herself when doing so means that she is different.
Her beauty glows from the inside out, she is strong, sexy and seductive.
She is a BOMANI WOMAN.
