Fashion is an emotional thing.

We simply wouldn’t be where we are today without the support from the fantastic creatives we collaborate with, including photographers, makeup artists, stylists, models, random people who inspire us and…YOU! We have been blessed to find and be found by some phenomenal talent for collaborations resulting in close friendships and many dinners and nights out exchanging life stories while sipping some good old vino.

If you haven’t worked with us before, you probably cannot imagine how personal and honest we like to be with our people. Fashion has so much to do with expressing emotions and sharing the same vision and I guess that is why we only work with people we love and trust! Today we’d like to introduce you to is our brunette babe, Swiss photographer Sandrine Gutierrez who we met in Glasgow back in November 2011. From first meeting her in our Finnieston studio, her vision of what she wanted to do create was clear and contagious and from that very first occasion we happily lent her some pieces for her to work her magic! Take a look at the result in this post and be sure to check out her website for more of her amazing work!

Her 2011 editorial shoot featured a few of her favourite pieces from our SS12 Seona Collection: the Luna Lughente KimonoTahiti trousers and the bestselling Hollyhood Rose. When we got the files through our mailbox we thought the photos were so stunning and working with Sandy was such a pleasure that we have now worked on four more shoots and campaigns – including images for our Phoenix AW14 and DIVA AW15 collections when Sandrine visited us in sunny Barcelona. She also created the amazing video on our website – take a look here! The amazing relationship we built with Sandrine across the years allowed us both to have a great time not just during the shoot but also afterwards, when we were out and about the magical city of Barcelona to celebrate!

If have a HOOD idea and you’d love to get involved with us just drop us a message at [email protected]! We’d love to get to know you!

Of course feel free contact us on our social media: Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and Snapchat @chouchoucouture BABE! We got you.

BIG kisses!
