Blinding lights. The never-ending snapping of a camera. “Smile and look cool – no, not that cool.” Have you ever wondered what it’s like to partake in a professional fashion shoot? Last week, a few members of WildChina’s staff, alongside founder Mei, had the opportunity to put their fancy collection of poses to good use when China’s branch of top fashion magazine Harper’s Bazaar came to our office for a photo shoot to go alongside their special feature of our founder Mei in their upcoming issue.
At WildChina, we often get questions regarding the “wild” in our company’s name. “Where does it come from? Are your trips actually wild?” Well, aside from our unforgettable journeys, this photo shoot was a perfect example of why our company’s name is so fitting. With each flash of the camera, the office was transformed into a scene from Kanye West’s hit song “Flashing Lights” and WildChina’s very own Mei, Elmer, Nan Ding, and Nellie transformed into top fashion models while spending their morning prepping for the shoot by getting their hair and makeup done and making some unexpected wardrobe changes. Their diligent practice in front of their full-length mirrors at home really paid off. As Elmer brought hazelnut-colored suits back into fashion and Mei worked her five-inch red heels like a supermodel, we at WildChina, have proven that we are not only front-runners when it comes to traveling in China, but we do it in style, giving even the most renowned professional models a run for their money.
Check out these behind-the-scenes photos from this very “wild” fashion shoot:
