THE SHILANGO LAUNCH | Behind the scenes at the official photo shoot

About a month or two ago (so, this counts as a #ThrowbackThursday post) I helped style a photo shoot for Shilango Jewellery for their official launch! Last September Shilango had what they call a ‘soft launch’ but now it was time for the real deal. Paola Silk, the beauty & brains behind Shilango, got some of Toronto’s best like Shayne Gray Photography, Sherlyn Torres Beauty and model Abbie Oliveira together for the shoot.

We worked for hours on end, photographing every single piece in Shilango’s collection! Abbie brought some outfit options and I worked with three of them creating a day time look, a night on the town outfit and a neutral one to show off some of the brighter pieces.Β It was a lot of fun! But then again, with great people, how could it not be a good time?Β It was a long day but definitely one filled with lots of laughter – and coffee, lots of coffee.

There’s also a Behind The Scenes video I made for The Lady-like Leopard’s YouTube channel that you can check out here. If you’re looking for unique, one-of-a-kind, handmade and ethically sourced jewellery, Shilango is the place to shop. The brand new Shilango website is up and running so what are you waiting for?! Head over there now.

Thanks everyone for a great shoot and thank you to Shilango Jewellery for including The Lady-like Leopard in your launch. Love you!
