A week is a long time in the life of a website. But what you can do in a week! An incredible team of talent both in front and behind the camera moved mountains to produce this picture in that scant timeframe. That wasn't enough of a challenge so we decided to do the shot LIVE in front of 300 people as the centrepiece of our re-launch party at the RHA. The result? An iconic shot of IMAGE models past, present and future, which celebrates our heritage as Ireland's best read women's monthly magazine merging with its future. And brings a tear to our eyes. Seriously, when the models paraded down the stairs in the RHA's beautiful atrium it was a sight to behold. An iconic Irish fashion moment.
Our photographer, Sean Jackson, clicked away as the models dropped into their poses and the shot was then instantly uploaded and projected on to the white gallery walls to huge applause. Then the music got louder, the dancing started and the party really kicked off!
We want to say a massive thank you to our creative team and our beautiful models: Olivia Treacy, Frances Duff, Sonia Reynolds, Sharon Bacon, Mari O'Leary, Pamela Brangan, Marie Staunton, Nikki Bonass, L'Or Mayo, Alanna Blake, Maria Bordman and Goda Kinduryte. Thanks also to?Sean Jackson (photographer), Stephen Kelly of Dylan Bradshaw, assisted by Becky McEvoy (hair), Ken Boylan and Leonard Daly (makeup). ?IMAGE's own Suzie Coen (uber-stylist) stage managed the whole shebang with assistance from Jo Linehan. Clothes from the Spring/Summer collection by Lennon Courtney, available at Arnotts.
May we also thank Rebecca Morgan from Morgan The Agency and Trish Fallon from 1st Option for their help.
We had the night of our lives and we have lots more to show you from both behind the scenes and the party itself...
