Villa Castellamonte, one of the Dominican Republic’s most exclusive luxury private villa resorts, announced today that Venus Swimwear, an industry leading direct mail swimwear and sportswear company, selected Villa Castellamonte to host and provide location guidance to the photo shoot of Venus’ 2006 Swim and Summer Fashions.
“We look forward to our exploring the Dominican Republic’s photo settings and backdrops to highlight our exciting 2006 swimwear and summer fashion clothing line,” said Lou Maggio, Venus Swimwear’s Director of Photography.
He continued, “Villa Castellamonte is well-known throughout the Caribbean as one of the most beautiful and elegant luxury villas and will provide spectacular accommodations and local guidance to the crew and models.”
Neither Venus Swimwear nor Villa Castellamonte would comment on the exact dates or photo shoot locations, citing the need for privacy to prevent inadvertent distractions. In previous years, Villa Castellamonte has provided location shoot support twice for Exotica Swimwear (www.exoticaswimwear.com) and Brian B. Hayes, a renowned swimwear and fashion photographer.
“We are extremely pleased and honoured to have been selected by Venus as their 2006 photo shoot location,” said Jason Matthews of Villa Castellamonte. He added, “The Dominican Republic, and particularly this unspoiled northern coast, offers some of the most beautiful and exotic locations in the Caribbean to complement fashion photography.”
