Two weeks ago a friend carried me to Norfolk hotel to see the shoot. Being a fashion blogger I always carry my camera with me, I requested the director of KFA if possible to take the behind the scene photos and she said yes. They may not be the end product photos that are gonna be unleashed at the Launch but I bet they are good enough to know what to expect there.
