Is there anything more fun than a photo shoot? You walk in at call time, and everyone is standing around getting acquainted over coffee and chia pudding and pumpkin bread. And then slowly but surely, the work starts. The models head into hair and makeup. The prop team sets the scene with help from the lighting guys. The stylist sorts through the hangers on her racks—getting organized, getting inspired.
Shot-by-shot, the producer and art director check off the outfits as they get photographed—a wear-to-work look, a date night ensemble, a weekend brunch outfit. Then soon enough, it’s lunchtime, and you find yourself studying everything the models do and do not eat. After a while, you decide there is no rhyme or reason. You let it go and eat just what you want. Afternoon slips away as the final shots get taken. And as you wrap for the day, you realize you are so in the groove, you almost don’t want it to end. Except for the pull of fresh evening air.
This is all true of our recent trip behind the scenes of our Fall ’17 fashion shoot. To inspire shoppers, we captured as many of-the-moment styles as possible: metallic shoes, velvet jackets, floral statement dresses, guitar-strap handbags, jean jumpsuits, denim trench coats, kick-flare pants, and more. For a sneak peek, scroll through the slideshows below. Then tell us what you’re most excited about wearing this fall. Leave a comment, and we’ll use the most inspiring ideas for future blog articles about shopping the look on eBay.
Meanwhile, here’s to fall, dear readers! Welcome to fashion’s favorite season.
