Behind-the-Scenes 2017 Plus-Size Homecoming Dress Photo Shoot

Behind-the-Scenes 2017 Plus-Size Homecoming Dress Photo Shoot

As a plus-size dress design and retail company, our customers want to see our dresses on not only the models found on our website and catalogs, but also real women and happy customers.

This was the inspiration behind our open Plus-Size Model Casting Call earlier this year, and why we chose two of our real-life customers to model our latest collection of homecoming and cocktail length dresses!

For our latest photoshoot, we worked in downtown St. Louis with our Sydney's Closet team and glam-squad for hair & make-up, wardrobe, and photography to capture glamorous product images and editorial shots of our real-life customers Kristi and Kaylee. We styled our newest dress styles with glamorous heels and sparkling flats from Diba True and trendy metallic sneakers from UrbanOG. We styled our first-time models with fabulous crowns, tiaras, and kitty ears too!

Our photoshoot featured several styling themes, including Homecoming Queen, Highschool and College Graduation, and Holiday Party. We love capturing and sharing inspiration for your important events!

Our fashion team was on hand to provide modeling tips to our first-time models, and they had so much fun learning posing techniques, creating movement with dresses, and just simply having fun with our newest collection of dressed-up styles that they will be able to wear to homecoming and holiday events for 2017.

Both girls wore Sydney's Closet dresses to Prom 2017. It was so much fun working with non-models who love our plus-size collections. These images will be especially helpful to our homecoming dress clients, who will now be able to visualize how each dress will fit their curves and body type, because we are expanding our product images to include not only plus-size models, but real women as well!

Our team worked flawlessly together for this photoshoot, and we're excited to share that we'll be sharing even more behind the scenes photos later this summer, from our Prom and Bridal photoshoots for even more new Sydney's Closet dress styles!
