The March issue of Elle is dedicated to fashion at work and this ‘Style For Less’ shoot was aimed at showing you how well-worn classics can be given a double take. ‘Pair them with the season’s updates and you’ll see there’s more than one way to wear them,’ says ELLE fashion assistant Nicole Newman.
Nicole Newman said “The models were incredible – Aida and Ieva, twins from Lithuania who had more personality than we knew what to do with! Wanting to showcase how an item can be worn in different ways, we knew we wanted to use twins and it seemed like fate was working in our favour when Aida and Ieva landed in Cape Town from New York in time for the shoot in January.” To find out more about this shoot visit the Elle Magazine website & watch this behind the scenes video.
