Video: Salford MediaCityUK fashion shoot
by Jamie Carruthers and Aran Burton
Local fashion designer, Collette Costello, took to MediaCityUK on Salford Quays for a photoshoot with local amateur models to showcase her latest line of summer fashions.
Using novice photographers, make-up artists, models and designers, Costello has marked out a niche in Salford, helping those who want to pursue a career in the creative arts get that much needed-experience.
15-year-old Hannah Hadfield from Monton was excited about the opportunity of her first modelling job.
“It’s amazing,” she said, “all the people who work around you are lovely.”
She continues: “I’m looking to go into modelling...I’m a little poser myself, I love being in front of the camera.”
From her studio in Ordsall, Collette also offers courses in dressmaking at all levels, clothing customisation, and a sewing club for unemployed men and women.
