A balmy Autumn day in Melbourne set an idyllic stage at Metropolis Events for a contemporary Urban Jazz shoot.
Adore Every Detail was approached by Renee from Tobi Music to style a promotional video for newly formed jazz band, The Green Reeds. The talented 10 piece group cover songs from famous artists such as Etta James and Edith Piaf, with spins on classic favourites such as ‘Cheek To Cheek’ and ‘My Baby Just Cares For Me.’
The styling was based on a sophisticated aura with a smooth jazz vibe. Encompassing every detail, from the stunning cityscape backdrop at Metropolis Events, to the modern, sophisticated interior, Adore Every Detail created an urban, yet classic concept akin to the bygone era. A spread of subdued charcoals were selected for the overall attire, with an accent colour of burgundy incorporating a sensual element to the overall setting. The bold tone was subtly highlighted throughout the band’s clothing and accessories, while Renee, the focus centre stage, flaunted a luxurious, deep ruby satin and lace floor length gown.
The palette of rich tones paired with contemporary features generated a sense of elegance and charm. Bold burgundy and plum florals intertwined unstructured native foliage and trailing ivy, interspersed with brushed gold accents, while charcoal features ignited a sense of sensuality and mystery.
