Clothing firm looking for Scilly kids for photoshoot


A Cornwall-based clothing firm has called for Scilly children to model for a photoshoot on the islands in March.

Frugi makes organic clothing for children from newborn babies up to 10 years, as well as breastfeeding tops for mums.

Each season the firm's collection is based around a different theme, with Spring 2019’s being 'A Summer of Scilly-ness'. Frugi’s design team took a trip to Scilly last summer and have created prints and designs inspired by the landscape.

The company’s photography co-ordinator Genna Frugi told This is Scilly: “We’re very excited to be coming over next month for our photoshoots. Our team will be there the weekend 24th/25th March (or a bit earlier if it’s nice weather!) to photograph our new collection, with the help of some local little models!"

Frugi, which is based in Helston, has put out a casting call for babies around 8 months (sitting up) to 3 years (or 1m in height) and children from 4-7years (or 110cm to 130cm). It is also open to suggestions on possible locations around the islands.

Genna said: “Myself and my colleague Beth will be flying over at the end of February to visit some of the suggested places and to meet and measure some potential little models. We have received some very helpful messages from people already and lots of great model submissions- we shall be replying to everybody in the next week or so.”

If you would like your child to be involved in the photoshoot, send Frugi an email at models@welovefrugi.com including a photo, name, age and height. The subject line should be 'Scilly Models'.
