California School of the Arts High School FIDM Fashion Club President Kensie Braun fills us in on the process!
I was inspired by some of my favorite fashion YouTubers to film a Fall Fashion Lookbook. In particular, I really loved ToThe9s and TheLineUp Fall Lookbook that they recently produced. The theme for the Lookbook was “Fall in LA.” We wanted to showcase what LA fall fashion looks like in the 80-degree sunny weather we have here!
The clothes were all styled by Fashion Club members. We spent the meeting before the filming creating fashion mood boards to get inspiration for our outfits. Members were all able to put their own personal style into the Lookbook. We also scrolled through Pinterest to find current fall fashion trends. We did our best to find cool walls, urban architecture, and different angles around campus that would all contribute to an aesthetic look that we were trying to create.
I shot and edited the video, because videography is a passion of mine, and I love being creative with different music. Our Co-President, Lola, helped a lot with the styling of the pieces, and hyped all of our club members up during the filming! Our amazing Fashion Club photographer, Ariana (@arijoyphotos), photographed members around campus while they were waiting for their time to be filmed.
Some tips I’d give for other clubs who want to shoot a video Lookbook would be to make sure its a collaborative effort! One person could do videos, one could do photos, one could work on styling, and others could work on the inspiration for the outfits. Also, use the time to bond with other members! A lot of us became closer friends during the filming, and it’s so cool to share our passion for fashion together.
Up next for our Fashion Club is a makeup master class with a professional makeup artist, and we also plan to do more DIY projects! We’re also excited to attend Fashion Club Day together at FIDM in January!
