The Lux Maldives Experience – Bikini Photoshoot

Lux* Maldives – Behind the Scenes at the 2015 Bikini Photoshoot Coco Bay Co-Founder, Belinda Robinson, gives us the low down on the 2015 photoshoot at Lux* Maldives. You would have thought by now that we would be well practiced at the pre-photoshoot drill but each year it seems to start earlier and take longer as the collections get bigger and the task in hand more challenging! The result – we are on our knees before we even start taking the pictures and this year even more so having also just launched a brand new website and back office system. I don’t even remember the 8 hour flight, I think I was out by the opening credits of the first film of my carefully selected line up and the next thing I knew I was being nudged by a rather grumpy air hostess to get ready for landing. In all the preparation we were so pre-occupied by samples turning up on time and schedules that we had not had much time to get excited about the venue and it wasn’t until we stepped off the flight that the wonderful reality hit home – We were in the Maldives and we were heading back to Lux* Maldives.
