Couture fashion at Benslow

Luke Archer and John Silk talk about why they chose Benslow Music to shoot their latest couture fashion collection at Benslow Music in Hitchin

“Upon completion of our Autumn Winter 15’ couture pieces, we sought to capture the elegance and beauty to which the luxury handmade pieces emit, and there was no better place than to hold this landmark photoshoot at Benslow Music.
Inspiration for this season came from the late opera singer Maria Callas, and I felt that there was no better way to honour Maria and her legacy than to create three highly detailed couture pieces that truly represent who she was; feminine, fierce and legendary.
The people of Hitchin and surrounding areas are extremely lucky to have such a building that boasts many of its original features such as carved ceilings and stained glass windows, and of course the gorgeous staircase, all of which contributed to the authenticity of our Autumn Winter 15’ photoshoot.
We would like to take this time to thank Benslow Music for allowing us the opportunity to hold our photoshoot in such a beautiful building, and for becoming a part of our brands history in the making., and we look forward to working with Benslow Music in the future.”
