THE FUTURE OF FASHION!!

WELCOME TO THE MAY ISSUE!                                                                                       As I write I'm currently at home, still in my pajamas wondering what lies ahead. Life as we know it has changed forever. Fashion will of course continue to be a source of inspiration, but the way it's presented to us will change. Consumers will change the way they buy. The constant race to present something new will also change. Because of the pause in our lives and to the fashion industry,...

THE NEWTON GIRL!

WELCOME TO THE DECEMBER ISSUE ! WHERE WE ARE IN HOLIDAY MODE. We hope you've enjoyed perusing our recent editorials. I must say its always a pleasure shooting and being creative. Its sort of an outlet for me. We normally go in the direction of a gift guide, but I chose instead to do just a beautiful series of stories with beautiful images and objects to dream about. In the process of planning this shoot I perused image of Helmut Newton and loved his images of a very strong sexually liberated woman who loves fashion. Our cover star @kate_sutton12 is 6 ft tall and she has the height to represent what I call the NEWTON GIRL and the beauty...

DECEMBER! MENS HELMUT NEWTON!!

WELCOME TO THE DECEMBER ISSUE AND TO THE MENS EDITION OF THE HOLIDAY ISSUE. This season, as I've previously stated, I was inspired by the iconic photographer HELMUT NEWTON. I adored his 1994 campaign for Gianni Versace. The lighting was severe and the attitude was a bit sexual but extremely sophisticated. 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. I must say that it's extremely hard to find a male model that has African features, It's all the rage in Paris. @linowilson comes to us Via @selectmodelchicago. His future is bright and he will make...
