Over the summer, while doing a show in Greenwich Village, I was approached by the extremely talented fashion stylist Santa Bevacqua, who asked to borrow some of my scarves for a photo shoot for L'Officiel magazine. Needless to say, I was extremely excited.
Santa has an amazingly ethereal and otherworldly sensibility; her work is both lush and minimalist, bold and streamlined. She excels at adding texture and drama to images with rich and unexpected fashion juxtapositions. In addition to the link above, you can check out her work on Instagram.
So some of my scarves went to Italy for an eerily beautiful maze photo shoot that ran in L'Officiel. The photographer was Amber Gray, whose images conjure up a dreamlike world.
In the end, the photo with my scarf in it (model on the right) did not make it into the feature. But it was great fun to see my work in the lavish and decadent glam rock context of this shoot. And it was a real pleasure to meet Santa and her colleagues - a lovely experience, all around!
I am enjoying some quiet time after a lively, and thoroughly enjoyable, holiday show season. Big thanks to everybody who stopped by my table!
My last show was the Yorkville Holiday Exhibit & Sale, and it was inspiring to meet, speak with, and admire the work of the very talented participants. The vibe of the show is intimate, relaxed, 100% hand made, and high quality - really lovely.
While my body is tired, my spirit is invigorated, and I am already at work planning new products for 2016. Wishing you and yours all the very best of the holiday season, and a Happy New Year!
