The shoot for World Swimsuit 2015 in the Maldives has sadly come to an end. It's not often a team working on a project has so much fun, gets so much quality work done and forge a real sense of sharing in something truly special. That's exactly what happened over three weeks in the Maldives with all the action lovingly shot an collected on location.
As we split up and head in our different directions, we know that a lot of hard work lies ahead. The best shots have to be selected and perfected for the magazine, the TV special needs to be edited and all the digital content and video needs to be organised, edited and presented in the build up to launch.
There wasn't time for getting emotional on the last day with Xenia Deli taking to the skies to film an exciting shoot for Havaianas and a thrilling insert for the TV show.
As you can see from the pictures, Xenia's parasailing took place in perfect conditions and she took in the immaculate views of the Paradise Island Resort.
There were wrap interviews with the models and photographer Jacques Weyers...
And fun wrap shots with Candice Boucher...
Before the team got together with the management of the Paradise Island Resort to have a wrap party to remember. We must give a huge thanks to the GM of Paradise Island, Qaiser Naseem, as well as Abdullah Fathey, guest services co-ordinator, Najeeb, and guest services operational, Joan Gonzalez, for making our time here an absolute pleasure. This is a special resort as you've seen while following our journey and we will miss its staff and beauty immensely.
Finally we need to give a huge thank you to headline sponsors GNC and all our other sponsors for making this trip so incredible.
