Behind the Scenes: Fall/Winter Preview

When green3 shoots for our catalogs, it’s not always just serious and professional.

Over the course of 5 days, green 3 had more than 2000 photos taken with tons of new garments for when the leaves start to change and snow begins to fall. We know we have a few months before that, seeing as it’s finally warming up a bit across Wisconsin, but here’s a glimpse behind the curtain into what we’re doing this year.

In order to get certain shots, the photographer must get the model to pose in a various amount of ways, or even get her to laugh a little, to get the photo that truly represents what green 3 is about: femininity, individuality, and fun!

Our big idea #1 is Holiday. What started as Jane trying to balance turned into…

Jane acting like herself to represent green3.

For example, in the below shot, Jane was told to act like a vampire so that she could represent a woman who is mysterious and goth. She couldn’t help but laugh and have fun making silly faces toward the camera.

Jane doubled over after asking to act like a vampire.

However, the end shot was phenomenal, and captures our big idea #3: Halloween.

Our #4 big idea is Fall– Jane needed to get some giggles out before she could deliver the true, Fall smile.

We fully believe in everyone’s true self, which is why we are proud of the way our photo shoots are conducted.

We even included Ms. Belladonna in our photo shoots. Being an Italian beauty, she adores modeling. She does work for treats, pasta, or whatever happens to be cooking in your kitchen. More of Bella can be found on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.

We are launching new scarves, hand warmers, shirts, skirts and sweaters, all which are the same organic cotton and recycled or re-purposed materials. Stay tuned to read about where the inspiration comes from, the story behind each piece of cloth, and when these gems will be released!

Gifts for Music Lovers

Clockwise from top left:

  • Country Chick: Head, heart, hands, and health. Our Country Chick loves her Ford F-150 and cowboy boots. She has a cowgirl spirit and is farm fresh.
  • Punk Chick: The King is gone, but he’s not forgotten. When discussing the best of the Stooges, this Punk Chick talks about Fun House, not Dizzy Pilots or Goof on the Roof.
  • Ballet Chick: At home with the company or in the theater, this Ballet Chick can strike a Classical Pose with the best of them!
  • Folk Chick: What travels 926 miles from Chicago to New Orleans? Our Folk Chick knows her way from Newport to San Francisco and can answer the question, “Where have all the flowers gone?”
  • Jazzy Chick: At Last, something just for the Jazzy Chick. There will be Trouble Trouble and Stormy Weather in your future if you do not get her one of these.
  • Rap Chick: You gotta live it to feel it, you didn’t you wouldn’t get it. This Rap Chick knows that rap is a lifestyle, a culture, far more than gold chains and Three Stripe Pro Models.
  • 80’s Chick: Flock of Seagulls or A-ha? This 80’s Chick is totally amped and thinks the 80’s were the bomb!
  • Singing Chick: A bird does not sing because it has an answer. It sings because it has a song. Our Singing Chick may never play Broadway, but that won’t stop her from showing off the pipes in the shower, the car, any family get together, or at the next Idol audition!
  • Guitar Chick: Hendrix? Clapton? Mayer? Knopfler? How about Nancy Wison? This Guitar Chick swings a wicked axe and can dive bomb with the best. Always looking cool and ready to rock!
  • Goth Chick: What’s wrong with wearing great eyeliner, having white teeth, and living every day like its Halloween?
