Here is the finished photos from last Wednesday’s photo shoot! The photographer, Takura was amazingly fast with his work, and I had the finished photos in hand within 4 days of  the shoot (thank you Takura!).

The initial theme of this shoot was to be that of an old film, an Audrey Hepburnish feel, but I think the final product turned out much different. Andy named this lookbook “Flickers”, because they seem to show “flickers” of the same girl. He said that these shots show Maya, in different settings and moods. You see flickers of her varied personality and style.  It is the same girl but she is constantly changing.  This reminds me of the flickering light of a candle.   Andy is usually good at coming up with titles and themes of lookbooks but I am not sold on this one yet:)  What do you think?

The shoot took place in Sakuragicho, Yokohama. It was sunny, beautiful, and best of all, we managed to dodge the suspicious glances of various security guards.

So what do you think? I know it’s much different from my most recent lookbook, Secret Garden. I myself was surprised to see how different clothes can look, depending on the styling, make up and hair and model. I like the edgy, vogue magazine feel to these photos, and am happy to add some new flavors to VV.


  1. hi chie, this is another wonderful milestone for you. Your dresses looks so differently in this photoshoot as well as the styling is super pretty. Elegant and chic 😀
    I think the title flickers is a wonderful idea ….really describes what we see on the pictures and styling.

    congrats again!

  2. Awesome, this really has an edgy feel.
    I love the white dress, but I think Maya looks gorgeous with the purple and black one. Great job!

  3. i love these! 🙂 they have a different, darker feel compared to your last photo shoot, but still beautiful nonetheless. i think i like the name “flickers” – the look is definitely glamorous, but there is something almost a little bit dangerous about them. well done 🙂 x

    • thank you! i think “dark” describes the lookbook well. it is different from my past lookbooks!


  1. […] how the photos turned out – the Photographer, Takura, whom I’ve worked with for the Flickers lookbook, did an amazing job. We did a careful planning for the shoot and I think it paid […]
