How did the Shakli team determine the fashion accessories to use during the photoshoot?
To be honest, we totally forgot that we would need fashion accessories to match our modest fashion outfits at the photoshoot. It was only a few days before the photoshoot and my flight to Miami that I realized we needed to have some accessories for the models. This included jewelry, scarves, hand bags, sunglasses, etc.
I quickly popped onto Amazon.com and began to look for accessories to match the Shakli "modest fashion look" and the modestly styled blouses. It is with the online polling of our followers on Instagram @Shaklibrands that we selected what to purchase for the photoshoot.
I was terrified that the items may not arrive before the photoshoot and actually found I ordered the wrong color hat! I spent about 2 minutes frustrated and then I realized, we were about to have our first photoshoot launching a modest fashion brand that I brought together from an idea! We made the hat work and just smiled through the process!
This was definitely one of those experiences and moments where I realized that some things will not be perfect. It will be ok. No one else knows the vision or that the hat should have been black!
One of our aspirations is to work with other brands to assist in cross selling hijabs or scarves with our modest fashion blouses. We truly believe that community is built by working together and supporting each other in growth.
If you recommend any brands, let us know!
