It’s amazing being able to view an international Louis Vuitton campaign that’s been shot in Cape Town. But the reason I’m smiling is because I got the opportunity to work on it. As one of the styling assistants on this shoot I found myself on beautiful safari locations a stone’s throw from Cape Town. I had the job of unpacking the beautifully sequinned and feathered catwalk pieces and iconic Monogram trunks before the international team arrived, savouring the opportunity to be up close with these Louis Vuitton crafted creations. Being on the same set as photographer Peter Lindbergh and models Karen Elson and Edie Campbell was a major career highlight. Karen Elson was in the first Vogue I ever bought over a decade and a half ago and has been one of the true iconic supermodels. This campaign would however not be what it is without the natural wildlife and surrounds of Africa from the Atlantis dunes to Stellenbosch. Featuring lion cubs, giraffes and cheetahs, the “Spirit of Travel” was definitely captured in this unforgettable Spring Summer 2014 campaign.
