After last years regal and amazing cape moment we knew we had to top it this year! Vogue paired us up with the incredible design team at H&M to attend the Met Gala this year and we were thrilled to oblige. Our look was designed by myself, Janelle and H&M and created by the amazing team in Stolkhom and New York City. We knew the elements we wanted to include, A cape, some hints of skin, a skirt and of course the Asian inspired theme. The end result was perfection. janelle-monae-at-met-gala-2015-in-new-york_1

Our night consisted of Lady Gaga/ Alexander Wangs party followed by Rihannas after party. I was on hand to hold the cape of course. We may have danced a bit too :-)

SEVYN STREETER- HOW BAD DO YOU WANT IT

May 21, 2015

I had the pleasure of styling the beautiful Sevyn Streeter for her music video “How bad do you want it” from the Fast and the Furious sound track. We did three looks in the video which we shot at the US/Mexico boarder crossing 4 hours outside of LA! It was a very long day but totally worth it for the vast rolling hills of sand and sky.

After the video she performed the song at the huge premier event in LA and we also did the red carpet for the movie. Such a fun project and love seeing things come full circle. Nylon Magazine covered the day with a fun behind the scenes post too.

Sevyn is wearing Fausto Puglisi dress, Casadai Heels and XIV Karats jewelry. Sevyn+Streeter+Furious+7+Los+Angeles+Premiere+x1OnQeqe_yfl Sevyn+Streeter+Furious+7+World+Premiere+ybrsJQdwWLbl

AWARD SEASON CATCH UP!

February 16, 2015
eephus_wondaland_Wbottom-web

Hi guys!! Missing you all and sending my apologies for being MIA. Wanted to share with you what I have been up to over the last TWO weeks! With Grammys and two of my other big clients, Janelle Monae and Fall out Boy working on separate projects I have been slammed!! Sometimes I wonder how I do it all actually. I am so proud of my team and grateful I get to work with such inspiring people. Janelle and I especially hit a high note and rode a really awesome wave of creativity over Grammy weekend, she is and always will be my muse. Fall out Boy shot a Pepsi commercial that aired during the Grammys, that was for sure a highlight of a great weekend. Click on the links below to see some press about me and my clients, and behind the scenes videos I am in.

VINCE STAPLES X FLAUNT MAGAZINE

October 31, 2014
vincestaples

I don’t share too much about the Men clients I style, but I’m obsessed with how great these Vince Staples shots for Flaunt Magazine turned out. I loved that he was excited about his style, because most Dudes don’t typically care too much, but Vince had a point of view and knew exactly what he liked and wanted to wear. The best part about working with a new artist and working on editorial shoots are experimenting with designer pieces and it was fun to put him in Louis Vuitton, APC, Burberry, Alexander McQueen, and Comme De Garcon pieces, but we did keep his style true to his roots – hence the custom made “Long Beach” bomber jacket.
