The Project | Assemble STOCKHOLM shoot 2019

Following the success of last year's shoot in STOCKHOLM we are now looking to return in 2019 with more Textile designs! 

We are now looking to manufacture and shoot an even bigger collection of Assemble apparel and accessories in Your fabric!  We are looking for creative, contemporary, abstract and bold designs that will be made into a selection of Assemble apparel and accessories including some new arrivals to the collection!

This is a fantastic opportunity to try out some new products, add to an existing range and get high quality professional photos of your products in "context" for your website, portfolio or promotional material. 

The shoot is open to a range of businesses, designers, printmakers and weavers from the UK or further afield.

Simply pick the products or collections that you would like to have made from the rewards (available below), send us Your fabric and we will make and shoot your products!


Your fabric and what you will receive

After the shoot you will receive both high quality digital versions of the product shots (numbers of product shots may vary, please see rewards for more information) as well as all of your products and any remaining fabric.   

All fabrics for this project have to be “iron” friendly which means that if for example you are screen printing the fabric, it has to be "fixed" before being sent to us. Most fabrics might also require some heat pressing, so it is very important that your fabric doesn't "melt" or change shape at high temperatures.  For items that require finishing details such as D-rings, linings and straps will be included and we will do our best to accommodate the best colour match for the outer fabric.

Fabric requirements for each product or collection can be found in each reward. If you have any questions in regards to "appropriate" fabric for your product, get in touch with the Kalopsia Team at info@kalopsiacollective.com and we will be more than happy to assist.

For example - a light silk might not be appropriate for the Tote bag and a heavy bamboo might be to structured for a Daga dress.


Which products are available?

There is a range of Assemble products to pick from in the rewards, including dresses, bags, tops, pouches and jackets etc. This year we will also include a few new unreleased products  "New Accessories Product" in the reward list. These products has not yet been launched or manufactured until now.

All the products will be manufactured ethically and sustainably in Scotland with high quality hardware, linings etc before being transported to Stockholm, Sweden, for the photoshoot.

The Models 

For this year's shoot, we will be using two models. Maja will be returning from last year's shoot along with another local model. Maja is a fantastic professional model from Sweden and has previously worked for big brands and agencies. 

Why Stockholm?  

The Swedish capital Stockholm has a strong understating of style, functionality, beauty  and simplicity. The city is known for its clean, modern style that extends across the city.  

We believe our company's strong links with the city is a perfect match for another cross cultural design experience

This year's locations 

 All locations for the shoot will be located in the central of Stockholm. These locations include:

  •  Söder; Slussen, Götgatsbacken  - "Söder" or Södermalm is usually  considered an island, but water to both its north and south does not flow freely but passes through locks. Until the early 17th century Södermalm was mainly a rural, agricultural area. Its first urban areas were planned and built in the mid 17th century, comprising a mixture of working class housing including little red cottages.
  •  Djurgården  - is an island, situated in the central of Stockholm and has been in possession of the crown since the 15th century. It is today the home to historical buildings and monuments, museums and galleries and there are extensive stretches of forest and meadows. 
  •  Exercisplan on Skeppsholmen  - Skeppsholmen is a Stockholm island connected by bridges. Positioned at the Baltic Sea entrance to Stockholm, it has traditionally been the location of several military buildings and from here you can see the old town of Stockholm.
  •  Kungsträdgården Tunnelbana “The Kings’ Garden”  - Kungsträdgarden, is arguably one of the most dramatic underground art installations with its vibrantly coloured abstract harlequin design which engulfs caves and a mini-archaeological dig with Roman columns, marble slabs, and stone sculptures – all 17th and 18th century. It will make  a very dramatic and colourful backdrop for the shoot.

Last year's shoot 

Last year we took a collection of apparel and accessories to Stockholm, featuring designs by Ruth Crother, Lizzie Hillier, Kat Rulach, Angela Johnston, Alison Wibmer and Ishy Miller.

The location then was outside the Museum of Modern Art which houses work by Swedish and international modern and contemporary artists, including Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dalí. There is also a model of  Tatlin's Tower as well as art pieces from by Alexander Calder, Niki de Saint Phalle and Jean Tinguely. link


The photos

Digital  

This one is fairly simple - the majority of the photos will be digital, shot on DSLRs and edited before you will receive the pack which  you can use for your portfolio, website, promotional material etc.

Film  

We will also be shooting film, both with a classic 32mm and also an Olympus pen EE3 half frame - A beautiful little camera that when processed as a standard 32mm gives a dynamic dual shot and brings out different textures, colour and quality from the digital photos.

Ethics and sustainability 

When working on a shoot, especially one that isn't local, the sustainability and ethics become much more tricky. We are and will be doing everything we can to make sure that we are meeting the highest standard and best practices. 

The Models

Both the models we will be working with on this shoot, fit within our standard guideline for models for age, health and wellbeing. We are also dealing with both of them directly to ensure that their fee for the shoot is going directly to them. 

The Products

As always with everything we do, the products will be manufactured in-house at our factory in Edinburgh, Scotland and with all fabric off-cuts returned to You as a client as usual. 


Just want to support the project?

If you would you like to just to support the project but do not need anything to be made up for the shoot, that is not a problem! We have several rewards if you would like to simply support this shoot. We are offering, pencil cases, flat bags and totes in beautiful Scottish linen as a thank you for supporting this project, the designers and British manufacturing.

The Scottish linen used for the products is woven by Peter Greig & Co. Kirkcaldy, Scotland, established in 1825. This company prides itself on its quality, service and design and has a long history of traditional weaving in Scotland.

The pencil cases, flat bags and totes are manufactured ethically and sustainably by Kalopsia Collective in Scotland.

Fabric, requirements and hardware

All fabrics for this project have to be “iron” friendly which means that if for example you are screen printing the fabric, it has to be "fixed" before being sent to us. Most fabrics might also require some heat pressing, so it is very important that your fabric doesn't "melt" or change shape at high temperatures.  For items that require finishing details such as D-rings, linings and straps will be included and we will do our best to accommodate the best colour match for the outer fabric.

Fabric requirements for each product or collection can be found in each reward. 

If the project is successful, we will need to receive Your fabric(s) by June 3rd. More information to follow.

Image rights

After the shoot your images and products are yours to use as you wish - to promote your brand, build and add to your portfolio, etc. However, we do ask that you do not use the images for any direct financial gain (such as selling postcards with the photos on.) 

Kalopsia also reserves the right to use all photos taken during the shoot for their promotional materials, on their website and in relation to future projects and advertisements. Kalopsia will always credit the fabric designer and brand when photos are used. We also reserve the right to use images that were not initially released to participants if at a future date if it becomes viable to do so. 

Risks and challenges

We have ran several shoot like this in the past and have a good track record in delivering good results from them. There are however always challenges with this sort of work. Model illness and the weather are always our to major concerns. To meditate these risks we are remaining relaxable with the date of the shoot and have back-up models in place if something was to happen
