After some of the most sublime Auckland winter weather in memory, the forecast for tomorrow is for rain. We're pleased about this as we had hoped for a wet and wintery day to capture the raw beauty of a winter's day at Muriwai for this particular issue of Black. We're also deeply excited to be shooting the dress above and several more from the Louis Vuitton Fall 2010 RTW range, in New Zealand. Black fashion director Rachael Churchward is mixing it up with a couple of internationally recognised New Zealand designers; Karen Walker and Kate Sylvester. Photographer David Shields, a stalwart of early Black issues, is a fan of the rain and its attendant low light challenges and Greg Murrell will be overseeing hair on all of the NZ shoots in issue 13. Stacey Lee Ghin is on make-up and the models are NZ new faces; Victoria, Caity and Ella, all at Clyne Models. Assistant fashion editor is Phoebe Trezevant-Miller. We'll post on-set images from the LV Meets Muriwai (working title) shoot tomorrow or Saturday.
