About the Video

This fashion project was shot in Milan, Italy at a restaurant/bar/ice cream shop, Van Bol & Feste, near the center of town. Van Bol started in Naples, Italy in 1890 by a man from Holland. They are now in Milan.

I saw this location when I was just walking about early in the morning. Those familiar with Milano this is close to the Cadorna train station (Stazione Cadorna). I asked Emiliano to contact them to see if we could get permission to shoot, which we did but we had to be out at 11:00 in the morning due to they get busy around 11:30.

Fortunately I was also able to book a very good Make Up artist in Milan, Serena, and Emiliano, my lead assistant in Europe, was already in Milan helping me on other projects, coming from Germany where he lives. We confirmed the model just before 7 p.m. and started the project the following morning.
