Lingerie

Finally our lingerie story from We Like We Love magazine is out! Actually it was out last week online but as of this week it is launched in print (HERE)The story was shot in my house, which was a treat for me because I didn't have to haul all my stuff to the shoot and back! Not that panties are that cumbersome. 








When I first decided to do a lingerie story Ania B was the number one choice and she did an amazing job. I wanted to style it in a way that showed more clothes (and less T and A) so half-dressed seemed right. I managed to get Agent Provocateur samples and pulled the rest from Holt's with some jewelry from our friends at Rubaiyat. I love what photographer Colin Way  did with the shots,  Joanne Black did beautiful make-up as always and the hair by Hedkandi Salon was the perfect touch. Alyssa Yuhas always does a great job with the design of the magazine and deserves a special thanks. Lastly, thanks to Aly Velji for the loan of the beautiful Afera rug, designed by him and available at the Rug Shop. I wish I could have kept it!

T & F Slack Shoemakers

Do you know the difference between a Derby and a Brogue? Doesn't matter really because T & F Slack Shoemakers do! And the best part? They actually allow you to customize your own shoes, men's and women's! Be they Derby or Oxford, these London shoemakers have some great options including amazing baby blue brogues or super bright contrasting soles. They also have a huge collection of lasts and materials to choose from should you want to design something entirely your own. 






Check them out if you are in Notting Hill for bespoke services. You can also use the build your own shoe service in Selfridges (my favorite) or Liberty (close second). Or, if you are in Canada, you can buy one from the selection of ladies shoes already made and available at your local Gravity Pope store!

NYC!

I just got back from a week long, whirlwind trip to New York City for a job with Watermark Advertising. We were shooting some magazine images for Mark's at Jack Studios in the West Village. What a great space! 7 beautiful studios with views out to the Chelsea piers. Nice! I also got to do a shoot with Shannon Greer  at Ten Ton Studio in the Brooklyn Navy Shipyards. Great space, great photographer, and great view. 

Here are some shots from the trip.
