Finishing the concept of this collection and will be posting pictures and color stories soon.....
This I don't really do. I don't stand up and announce "I'm a fashion illustrator!" cause I know I'm not. I wouldn't put my self in the category because the people who are blow me way out of the water. With that announcement I do enjoy drawing. I create pieces as more of an inspiration for myself. Its the first thought process before creating garments. Well, I decided to put what I call my little ladies up at my workplace - Jackson's Bar&Bistro - for the hell of it. Why not...
I've been on a little bit of a sabbatical. I moved apartments and survived the holidays. After the new year Ikind of needed a little break from my life. I have been buy though no lie. I decided to share a little mashup of what I have been up to. It kind of goes in this order:
Fall Collection - Photoshoot with Bradley Spitzer- sleep - Photoshoot with Michael Howard - sleep - move - holidays - new years - Unleashed Dog Show - wine - Fashion Sketches
I did create a fall collection. I did a very relaxed and fun photoshoot with some amazing people.
Photographer: Bradley Spitzer
Hair: Shana Michelle Taylor
Model: Christina Crawford
Next I felt very Lucky to be apart of this Photoshoot with Michael Howard.
I used some of amyb clothing pieces as well as some items I had in my collection. I made all the jewelry from hardware parts and paint.
Bonus I got to work with what Michael calls the dream team Shana Michelle Taylor and Eyrk Datura with Hair n Makeup. We basically all crammed in a tiny major ghetto hotel in Inglewood.
It really looked from the outside we were shooting a porn. People and lights all surrounding a bed? hmm. Even though we did crack jokes about it all night, what came out of this shoot was pretty rewarding:
Next up was the Unleashed Dog Fashion show. Nashville Humane Association(NHA) and Yelp put on this great event! I made 2 dog outfits for the 1st time and got to see them strut their stuff. It was a really fun event. All proceeds went to the NHA.
