A Very Vince Camuto Holiday With Sets by Despina Curtis
Despina Curtis assembled a series of glistening backgrounds for Vince Camuto's holiday look book. She and her assistant tested different materials prior to the shoot, "the key to it going smoothly and to being confident that the set would work well in the pictures," Curtis said. "It's quite rare for images to exceed my expectations and I was very happy with the results. I'm proud of what everyone produced and my involvement in the project."
The Camuto group afforded Curtis the freedom to be creative with her sets. "It was interesting to work with the women's and men's departments, and the shoot involved both on-figure sets and still-life sets," she explained, "so my brief was varied and the pace was exciting. On the final day, we shot the women's and men's in two adjoining studios. I bounced between the spaces making sure that each set looked great."
