“THE OCTOBER ISSUE” ICONIC, STUNNING STYLE AT EVERY AGE.

ICONIC, STUNNING STYLE AT EVERY AGE!! WELCOME TO THE OCTOBER ISSUE! In the wee hours of a mid-September night, I couldn’t sleep to save my life. In this situation, I normally begin to write my thoughts. I began surfing Instagram and landed on the handle of a dear friend, Liza Cruzat Brooks. I was touched by how positive her feed was. It was all about her family and her 91 year old mother, still a yoga-loving diva. I was instantly inspired, and I decided right then on the October issue, “AGE DEFYING.” I called Liza the following day and Liza and her mother, Millie, agreed to shoot for the “AGE DEFYING ISSUE”. In a situation like this, I normally wander the floors of...

OUR CHOICE FOR FALLS NEW IT BAG! LOEWE “BARCELONA” BAG.

FALL'S NEW "IT BAG"! For a woman, a bag is a must have accessory.In todays world she is given an abundance in choices, as in Kate Spade and the never ending Michael Kor's, which I believe one in every 5 woman has. My desire is to change all that. I'd prefer for a woman to be an individual and choose her go to accessory based not by popularity but by design . When scouting for looks and accessories for shoots I tend to choose based on the thought of " I've never seen this before". This Loewe bag was one of those tendencies. I've photographed, Givenchy, Dior, Prada, McQueen and numerous others but wanted something fresh that wasn't popular with the...

We’re overjoyed with all the melanin popping on the covers of BRITISH VOGUE, AMERICAN VOGUE, ELLE, GLAMOUR, MARIE CLAIRE, and of course TWOmuchSTYLE. Our cover star, @Iamberry, comes to us via MP Management and is a newbie to the modeling world, a mere few months. We are thrilled to be her first major editorial and cover.

Remember, “You saw her here, first.” In researching for this month’s fashion...

HOLIDAY BEAUTY !

WELCOME TO THE DECEMBER ISSUE. A HELMUT NEWTON CHRISTMAS. This Issue was inspired by the iconic German photographer Helmut Newton. I love his use of shadows and the way he portrayed the strength and sexuality of a woman. Makeup played a big part in his images, a perfectly stained lip along with a perfectly manicured lacquered hand. We cannot forget the use of fashion to bring his woman to life. Enter Makeup and Hair stylist @debbie_jacks at @distinctartists . Our Newton girl of the moment comes to us via @Selectmodelchicago , she is but 14. It was quite a challenge to bring out that Newtonesque beauty. Kate’s look started with Armani Luminous Silk Foundation  applied sparingly.  The focus of this look is...

In preparing for any shoot, I start with the clothes and then the models. Luckily there were a few that has just signed to agencies here in the city.
