The shoot went SO WELL! As usual, I can’t wait for the final images. I managed (with a LOT of reminding from helpful folks) to snap a few behind-the-scenes images throughout the day.
And on-site at the Airship Isabella studio–amazing space, and amazing group! I look forward to future collaborations with them. (you can check them out here: http://airshipisabella.com/)
The knits shoot final images came in yesterday, too–I’ll share those tomorrow.
Now, I’m thinking about a nap. Five hours of sleep didn’t do the trick…
Today’s the editorial shoot for 2 of the looks from my recent RAWards mini collection!
I’ve been putting the final touches on the looks.
Everything is packed and ready to go.
I’ll be back tomorrow with a sneak peek or two!
The final look for my mini RAWards collection was actually the second look I dreamed up, hot on the tail of the first look. I knew I wanted Mary Andrus to model it from the get-go, too.
Initially, I envisioned a brocade bust with an extremely full chiffon skirt. I even toyed with pockets.
Paired with the tattered lace collar and the (not-gonna-happen) spats, it looked really cute.
I think I design things that I would wear if I were tall and thin. Because I would so totally wear any of the things in my collection if I were. Sadly, being of the oompa loompa persuasion, I must live vicariously through my beautiful models.
I decided to make the closure for this dress lace-up to accommodate a closer fit that wouldn’t have to be hiked up every few minutes. I switched the chiffon idea over to a beautiful black lace with an attached black mini skirt lining. The back is bustled and the overskirt is longer than the lining.
Mary looked beautiful, OF COURSE. The top did need to be taken in quite a bit, so there was some deconstruction and re-construction in the dresses immediate future.

While I attempt to get myself together and get back on the blogging horse (pictures from the Halloween shoot to come!!), I leave you with Tilda. Actress, Goddess, Amazing.
This slinky number was made specifically for a photo shoot.
I have to admit, it’s a little sexier than I normally go for.
I’m kind of a costume nerdy girl…..more Helena Bonham Carter in regular life than Victoria Beckham.
So, I went back and forth and back and forth and back and forth on the neckline.
I did compromise a wee bit–the original idea was for it to be cut to the navel….
I used the dress in my RAW runway show, too.
And, WOWZA, Mary brought that baby to LIFE.
I recently listed it in the shop. (yes, it’s been cleaned)
The belt is part of the sale–it’s actually made from a re-purposed leather purse strap.
I hope to make more of these in other colors and fabrics.
One of these days….

Still struggling with getting my butt into the right rhythm and on the right schedule. I think this might take awhile.
So, while I struggle to stay awake long enough to sew, you can feast your eyes on this Mondays offering: slightly ghostly, but totally lovely.
I’m featuring one of my all-time favorite type of shirts for today’s Trapped In Time Tuesday.
It also happens to be in one of my all-time favorite prints.
(I had to make myself a shirt in the same print, fyi)
It’s a simple cropped cowl neck shirt with long, full sleeves.
I like to layer, so this speaks directly to my fashion aesthetic.
These images with the model are actually from my first-ever (rather impromptu) shoot–and where I happened to meet the amazing photographer, Britt of Underexposed Photography.
We were actually doing a trunk show (with lackluster sales), and still joke today that the best thing that came out of that day was our meeting each other, as well as a couple of models that we’ve worked with a number of times since.

Just a few images to share from a recent photo shoot.
Busy week–still adjusting to the 4am wake up call….
I’m so tired. So very, very tired.
But these pictures are pretty! Very, very pretty!

I’m not generally a Vogue kind of girl, but I make an exception for Vogue overseas–especially Vogue Korea.
Every image I have ever seen from Vogue Korea is beautiful.
Beautifully posed, beautiful sets, beautiful fashion, put together in new and gorgeous ways.
So, sit back, scroll through, and enjoy your pretty on this lovely Monday.
