My Work: Girl Gang – Fashion Editorial

I served as the creative director, stylist, and editor of this dreamy editorial entitled “Girl Gang”. All photography was completed by Eli Pollard. Models Kira Carew, Catarina Hong, and Jacqie Brooks are featured. All garments were sourced form my styling collection. The inspiration behind the editorial was to convey a connection between the featured girls while only having one present in each photograph. What resulted was an interesting dialogue between the photos, portrayed only by body movement and facial expression. The great thing about this series is that they double as thought provoking portraiture when standing on their own.

My Work: Crystallized Adolescence

As I was completing routine updates on my blog and adding some of my various work to the appropriate page links, I decided to do a little write-up about this wonderful fashion editorial piece I was able to complete back in December of 2012.  The piece is titled “Crystallized Adolescence”. It serves as a statement on how we as individuals, despite our incessant want to “grow up”,  find ourselves eventually struggling to preserve the last remnants of our youth.
