Erin Barr

It's been a long time -now it's Fashion Week and 
it's time for an update.
At Erin Barr's presentation the models looked like 
they were relaxed and enjoying themselves. I liked the turntable and 
the clothes were elegant yet wearable.

Awakening

I styled a new black and white story featuring AM from Muse and used a vintage sequin dress from the 1980's and a dress from Line & Dot. AM is from Thailand and incredibly sweet and graceful.  The story just got published in Kenton Magazine. You can see the whole editorial here: http://kentonmagazine.com/kenton_editorials/the-awakening/
