Laichi touching up Hitomi's make-up
I was lucky enough to go behind the scenes at Melbourne designer Adam Tsen's collaboration with director Michael Mouritz.
Launching his label TSEN while still at fashion school, Tsen's talents as a designer has seen him win numerous awards whilst gaining a loyal following for his ready-to-wear and bespoke pieces.
After gaining experience at the ABC and WTFN studios, director Michael Mouritz started his own freelance work in 2011. His first piece was a fashion film/mood project for Australian label Saxony entitled 'Sever the Edge'.
The purpose of this collaboration was to create a short clip for TSEN's website to set the mood for the viewer as they enter the site. It also gives Tsen a chance to express his label through a different medium, allowing people a chance to see a more creative side to the brand.
The movie features Hitomi Grace Utsugi and Clare McInerney in the main roles. Hair was done by StrugnellCole, and make-up was done by Laichi Wong.
The pieces featured in the video were custom made by Tsen for the shoot (POA).
Check out some of the behind the scenes shots below:
