Yesterday I worked with ModXChange as a featured designer/brand- with a photo and video shoot out in the Mojave desert.  And while the desert is one of my absolute favorite locations– I could have done without the severe wind and sandstorms. I’m actually surprised these behind-the-scenes snapshots are in focus- standing still was nearly impossible!  We shot at this amazing rock formation (with photographer Nathan Le), and the dress pictured is the “Vera”- my newest obsession: full length sequined mermaid gown.  Enjoy.  Results to come soon. – LE

Underwater Inspirations

I’ve never really been a huge fan of underwater fashion photography- mainly because I feel it’s usually too literal and without a purpose.  Fashion, simply shot underwater.  But these images are surreal, and magical.  A collection of my favorites.  I find the last two especially haunting…but maybe that’s just because I’ve always had an irrational fear of indoor pools…



Mommie Dearest

Because it’s almost Mother’s Day, I thought I’d share this brilliant fashion editorial inspired by the 1981 classic.  I just love it!

And remember, “no wire hangers!”
