So…. as I mentioned in my last entry, I had a little outfit shoot in a pretty special location! I’m a bloody noob when it comes to posing and that’s why I don’t like having pictures taken of me in public places.. anyway, since I was kind of fond of my outfit that day, I wanted to take pictures to make an outfit post. This is probably my first real outfit post but if you like it, I would gladly do more of these!
On the red kit it says “First Aid”…
The skirt and top are h&m and the shoes Marco Tozzi. The skirt is actually really old but I wear it every summer! It was fun taking pictuers because the location was unusual but cool!
Many photographers choose abandoned and run-down factories for their shoots and since I wanted to have a more private location I thought this could be a great place! There are different sites on the internet about where to find such locations as factories & co., worldwide or in specific regions and in Switzerland there are some pretty stunning ones too but unfortunately they’re taking down most of them. The funny thing is that we were not the only ones who had thought about taking pictures on that day and in that location. But the terrain was pretty large so we didn’t see too much of them.
The place is called Spinnerei Jakobstal and was a spinning factory producing cotton yarn for almost 120 years. It was closed in 1982 and has never been placed under monument protection but was used for illegal parties and concerts instead. Vandalism, fire and heavy snowfall have led to a rapid breakdown of this factory that is meant to be torn down soon. Pretty interesting um? At least that’s what it says here..
To see some shots of the location and one more poser pic, read on!
I hope you enjoyed this little bit of industrial history but most of all, what do you think of the outfit? I know, it’s rather beach-like but I felt comfortable with it. Tell me if you would like to sea some more outfit posts in the future…
