'Fashion Weekend' Workshop at Westfield

Twice a year, Westfield holds Fashion Weekend to showcase the latest trends over a series of fashion and in-store events. As part of this year's first Fashion Weekend, DJ and I were invited by Westfield Belconnen to facilitate a workshop focusing on social media.

Me and DJ
Our workshop focused on how to increase engagement on Instagram with your own high quality street style and flat lay images.  We talked trough our favourite Instagram fashion influencers, street style poses Do's and Dont's and broke down the flat lay process. Our participants were also treated to photography tips from DJ which they could take away and easily put into practice without having to invest in photography equipment.

At the end of the Workshop we split up into groups and DJ and I guided our participants to have a go at putting together their own flat lays featuring looks from Bardot, Cotton On, YD and Rockwear and we were impressed with the results!

For those of you who missed our workshop here are our top 3 tips from the day.

Street Style
1. Keep your poses natural and focus on one or two key features of your outfit
2. Wear a look you love and feel comfortable in
3. Best time to shoot is in morning and afternoon light 

Flat lays
1. Choose a theme or concept
2. Don't be afraid to be creative! 
3. Invest in a clean simple background (whether it be a fur rug, large piece of card etc.) 

We had so much fun and enjoyed meeting our attendees. Thanks for having us Westfield Belconnen.
