Meet your host

Hi, I’m Hedi. I’m a fashion designer, and I’ve been hosting film and photo shoots as a side hustle for years. I also used to work in film production for many years, so I know all the ins and outs. There’s nothing like the buzz of a great shoot, right? Seeing crews transform the spaces we’ve designed, using the furniture and props I’ve collected over the years, fills me with joy and pride. And of course, watching the end results is the cherry on top! My set mantra: plan and share, respect and care.
