We want to give a big Thank You to Melek Nazenin & Nazreen Tajudeen, administrators at David Gandy Fans Australia’s Fan Page (Facebook / Twitter). They are our guest bloggers today and the authors of this great post about David Gandy's collaboration with David Jones in his early years in the modeling industry. The challenge in finding these old pictures made this post even more special and we want to emphasize their effort in coordinating with us to get the final result. You truly are amazing and we are looking forward to repeating this experience in the future!
A special mention and acknowledgment from the whole team involved in this post to one of Australia's most highly regarded international fashion photographers with over 20 years in his field, Paul Westlake, who was so gracious to reply quickly to the emails regarding dates and locations from these vintage campaigns so that we could share them all with you. It has been a pleasure to collaborate with you. Thank YOU!
