The making of, with Vanesa

Hi everybody,

Today I’m showing you the pictures from behind the scenes of the photo shoot I did with Vanesa Lorenzo for the November issue of HOLA! Fashion.

It was such a fun day, and has been such a long time since I had worked with Vanesa. We both started out working almost twenty years ago and now we are both pregnant, have our own projects, families and businesses! So much has changed so there was a long overdue catch up!

The photo shoot took place at the Mercer Hotel in Barcelona, in the Gothic Quarter, just meters from the Catedral del Mar. The hotel is spectacular, it is built around the wall of Barcino, and in the shoot we incorporated the stunning Roman and Modern architecture thanks to the amazing designer Rafael Moneo. Thanks must also go to Francesc Holgado, the hotel manager, who organised our stay and made us feel very at home.

For lunch break we enjoyed the delicious cuisine of Jean Luc Figueras at Le Bouchon, the luxury tavern at Hotel Mercer. It was also a lot of fun as I was able to see my friends Ferran Ribo and Jordi Labanda.

The makeup and hair was done by Eva Villar and photos by Gonzalo Machado, as always, they did an amazing job. Moreover, working with a professional such as Vanesa everything ran so smoothly. All the clothes from the photo shoot are from her line Vanesa Lorenzo, which include beautiful, quality pieces, and we had the added bonus that she knows how to put the clothes together better than anyone.

And exciting news, Vanesa became a mum a few days ago, so congratulations Vanesa!
