Unconventional fashion shoot

Recently, there have been a number of high profile cases in the Subordinate Courts with women at the centre of attention.

Looking for the unique angle, The New Paper on Sunday team decided to focus on one common trait of these women - sunglasses. Shades that exude a chic air of mystery - perfect for a fashion shoot.

The creative brains behind TNPS came up with the idea of having a location fashion shoot outside the Subordinate Courts.

The shoot was scheduled on a weekday morning.

A model was brought in, as were a selction of glasses to create a realistic setting, some male colleagues were brought in to pose as "bodyguards" forming a human cordon.

As the courts became more busy we provided an interesting sideshow to the early morning activity of the courts.

Our small crew must have been convincing.

Despite the model being caucasian, young and very tall, a security guard with the Subordinate Courts came out, thinking one of the women at the centre of the sex-for-contracts trial had arrived early for the hearing. But when he took a closer look, he let out a chuckle upon realising his mistake.
