"She plays the starlet that ran away from The Cannes Film Festival to the peaceful retreat of her houseboat on the island", was the story behind our latest editorial shoot for Black issue #19. Firstly, the houseboat; rightfully named "Sunflower" and owned by model Zippora Seven's family, was one of the most idyllic settings we have ever experienced. We had the tide come in and out, Zippy rowing her row boat, photographer David K. Shields jumping in the water, beautiful, vintage gowns and a very, very nice day in Waiheke Island.
Here is a sneak peek behind the scenes of our day with Sunflower and a brilliant team of photographer David K. Shields, Fashion Editor Rachael Churchward, hair and makeup stylist Skye Cripps-Jackson of Stephen Marr and we finally caught a time with the radiant New Zealand model, now New York based, Zippora Seven at Clyne/Elite Models.
