This is a session by Dublin photographer Clíona O’Flaherty for the Spanish brand Babaà: yet despite searching both their sites/Facebook/Tumblr I still don’t have a name for the little model. Babaà uses her almost exclusively – and I imagine she must be the daughter of the owner, or something like that, to explain her rigid anonymity. Perfectly understandable, yet possibly in the future she might regret that her name wasn’t associated with these impossibly sweet portraits.
Babaà has a great business model: high class thin-ribbed cardigans, jumpers and dresses, all in 100% natural Spanish and Italian wool and cotton – but for the kids, for example, they only stock sixteen jumper styles, eight cardigans, and three dresses. A nightmare if your current year’s collection isn’t popular, but incredibly easy to promote and manage if it is.
The founder studied Fashion and Textile design in Dublin, which is probably where the connection to the Dublin-based photographer arises. I put together the shots that seem to come from the session where the tangle-haired model was wearing the jelly sandals: these following are a mixture, also a couple including another model who managed to slip in:
