Our lovely fashion editorial was inspired by the current fall/winter trends in black and white but the strong statement of sexiness, boldness and sophistication in black and white. I love opposites. My team and I have a great time playing with roles, set-ups and contrasts. And what better way than with black and white clothing? I wanted the model to play off the clothes like multiple personalities. Much more fun than day and night genre. My model Alexandra played with being a sexy kitty, strong business woman and the cool downtown chick.
Our photo shoot took place in downtown Brooklyn. The photo studio is in one of the last industrial parts of Brooklyn. Stark, bold and edgy-just like our clothing! What better inspiration? I made sure I used every part of the big photo studio. We kinda took over the space. The studio owner caught me standing on his furniture a few times-I could not help myself-I like a different angle for my photo shoots! Our make-up person Alsana was very attentive and worked very hard. Joshua, our hair person, filled us in on his recent life decisions and dreams. Angelina, our fashion stylist, was focused and brought a ton of options to choose from. Alexandra, our model, was from Poland. New to the modeling world, she talked about Poland very little and was most interested in our fashion stories. I moved around alot and photographed like mad. We worked together as a team-which is not always the case on a photo shoot. We created a world of contrasts, poses, attitudes and sexiness. Job well done.
