Everyone asks me ‘How did you get that beautiful shape, like a wave on the dress’ ? Confession; I did not use wind, wire or strings. I simply had my assistant throw the skirt in the air from the side and quickly pull his hand out of shot. Many of the frames had his arm still present but after about 25 attempts we finally got the shot that we all loved. The dress is by Tom Ford for Gucci.
