BEHIND THE SCENES: RELLEKE FARMS PHOTO SHOOT

Women's Outerwear

Have you ever wondered what our fabulous photo shoots look like from Behind the Scenes? Well, this post is your free ticket in! You’ll get to meet our models from that day, and see some of our favorite moments from our fall photo shoot. We got to meet cute farm animals and show off some of our favorite new fall and winter outerwear, all in one day! Here’s how it all happened:

Glik's Fashion Photo ShootWe started out the day by packing up all we needed inside our Glik’s Van! This helped us to transport all of the fashionable items that we needed to show off during our shoot, and it also worked as a helpful and discreet changing room for our models.

 

Glik's Fashion PhotographerOur fabulous photographer, Alexis Jones, made sure to get some quick pictures of our door-buster items at the beginning of our time at Relleke Farms. She always makes sure to get the best angles in order to show off our products in the best way! Here she’s photographing our favorite, fleece-lined leggings!

 

Unisex Sherpa Pullovers Not soon after that, our models arrived! Since we were going for a fall-themed photo shoot, they decided that they absolutely HAD to have a cute pumpkin pic to start off the day! (I think it’s adorable, don’t you?) And even though the weather started out a little chilly, we made sure to keep them warm and cozy in these sherpa pullovers.

 

CC Beanie Headbands for WomenMeet one of our female models, Randi Smith! She always brings her bright and peppy personality to our photo shoots, and her upbeat nature brings every single picture to life! She looked great in this Spyder pullover and CC Beanie Headband combo, and we absolutely can’t get enough of her positive vibes.

 

Men's ShirtsNext, we would like to introduce you to our most recent male model, Evan Howard! His goofy personality is masked in this photo, but he had us laughing all day long. He started off by modeling some of our seasonal shirts for men, and we loved the sunglasses he brought to accessorize with his outfit!

 

Glik's Fall FashionThese two made our photo shoot so much fun! We wanted to get creative with our surroundings, so we were thankful that they agreed to pose by this colorful tractor. (They were probably laughing here about how much we were showing our true “Midwestern” side by wanting to pose by the farm equipment.)

 

Tall Boots for WomenYou may not know this, but we go to lengthy measures in order to make sure that we keep our products in top-quality condition during these photo shoots. Here you can see one of our social media team members, Candice Greene, carrying Randi on her back so she wouldn’t have to walk around in the dirt with her fabulous tall boots on. Candice had also taken the time before our shoot to put protective tape over all of the soles of the shoes we brought. This way, we were able to keep these beautiful boots dirt-free!

 

Simply Southern T Shirts for WomenSince we were at the farm, we absolutely needed to incorporate the animals! Randi found a cute little piglet friend to match her adorable Simply Southern T-Shirt. It was pretty much love at first sight for all of us with this little piggy!

 

Womens The North Face OutfitAnother adorable animal friend we made was this goat! As soon as we walked towards the critters, Randi made sure to let us know that goats were her favorite. So we just HAD to have her pose by them in her The North Face outfit. This one goat wanted to pose for the camera and it worked out for a great shot! Aren’t they so cute together??

 

Sherpa Pullovers for Men and WomenThank you for joining us Behind the Scenes of this fall photo shoot! Randi, Evan, and our entire Marketing Team hope that you enjoyed this insightful look at how we create our images, and we hope to share future fashion photo shoots with you as well.

Until then, make sure to check out all of our newest fashion at gliks.com!

This third look can be styled in different ways to bring out your own style! Piko dresses are so comfortable, that you will NEED one in every color and style!

She is looking forward to working in the same fast-paced environment at home office, but now is getting to see how the process works from the other side!

From picking out and buying the clothes, to sending them to the stores and being purchased by customers.  Sam said, “I am learning new things every single day and my goal is to focus on and master the categories I buy.” She also is excited about getting to meet all of her amazing coworkers, exploring a new city, and attending trade shows.

magic

Speaking of trade shows, a few weeks ago Sam was able to attend the largest trade show of the year in Vegas, MAGIC.  According to Sam, “MAGIC was so much more than I expected, it was huge!”  Since she was a fashion merch major, Sam had been hearing and learning about MAGIC since her Freshmen year of college. “It was so cool to have that image in my mind for the past few years, and actually becoming reality!” Her favorite part of her first show was being around SO many people with common fashion interests and being able to see and choose product that no one else has seen before.
