Marie Claire Turkey and Louis Vuitton’s collaboration for the november issue starred Saadet Işıl Aksoy in Louis Vuitton’s fall 2010 collection. The lead photographer was Tamer Yilmaz. I held the position of assistant to the fashion editor.While I was rushing from one place to another, I spent my limited free time taking photos of the backstage.
Saadet, the talented new actress, suits the collection perfectly.
Fiesso D’Artico, Louis Vuittons shoe factory, where the shoot took place, brings together the understanding of traditional craftsmanship, latest technology and contemporary art. The architect Jean-Marc Sansdraolini took inspiration from the magical shoe box while designing the building. Apart from all the artworks scattered around the factory, the place also consists of a gallery full of shoe-themed works by Andy Warhol to other important artists.
The art journey starts with Jean-Jacques Orys statue at the entrance of the factory. Later in the center of the building Joana Vasconcelos's 4.70 meters long high-heeled shoe 'Prisicilla' stands out.
First you get the impression that its a giant silver high heeled shoe, then you realize that it is made of stainless steel pans and lids.
