Daisy aged 11 (instagram: urbanartgirl), from Muswell Hill loved her road so much that she made a painting of the road sign.  Now she’s photographed lots of signs from the local area and is turning them into road sign painting. Some of them can be viewed in North & Ten café in Muswell Hill

Little Hands Design

Typically, when most people think of fashion, interactive and educational are not the first words that come to their minds. However, the fashion shoot at Little Hands Design proves that assumption wrong.

Children, teens and even some of our adult students braved the cold on a bright Sunday morning to model their handiwork, which they made in their classes at Little Hands Design. The interactive fashion shoot provided the students of fashion the full fashion shoot experience, including hair, makeup, and the opportunity to shoot photos and adjust the lighting themselves, just like professional fashion photographers.

In addition to sewing the clothes they were modelling themselves, the students also learned new skills. Instead of simply posing for photos while the photographers took the pictures, students were able to interact with photographer Daniel Sellam and learn the basics of photography, including how to use reflectors to adjust the lighting. In fact, each student was able to model, take pictures, and hold the reflective devices during the fashion shoot. They were incredibly eager to learn from Sellam and his assistant, Vini, who were both very adept at teaching the students how to use their newly acquired photography skills.

Of course, no fashion shoot is complete without hair and makeup. Students who were shy about having their picture taken blossomed as they left the makeup station with intricate designs that made their confidence rise. Makeup artist Reena Bass was one of the make-up artists who adorned the students with her avant-garde makeup designs and gave them skin, hair, and makeup tips as well. Bass is quite passionate about passing on her knowledge of skin care, which is why she is currently in the process of setting up a skin care advising session for the teen clients at Little Hands Design.

The fashion shoot at Little Hands Design was a teaching tool to educate clients about the elements of a professional fashion shoot. The fashion shoot was definitely a smash success, and it most certainly won’t be the last. If anyone wants to learn more about fashion, a class at Little Hands Design is an absolute must.

Little Hands Design is a non-profit community interest company offering a wide variety of fashion design and sewing classes for children 6 years old through to adult courses including special midterm and Easter holiday classes. It’s the place to go if you want a hands on learning experience. As founder of Little Hands Design Astrid Jacoby once said, “you learn more when you try yourself.”
