The Big Apple

I remember, when I started being interested in 2009 I would look at top models present in the Bahamas. Shyloh was one of those models who always stood out to me who would excel in modeling years later I finally got to reconnect with her.

We planned for months in advance that I would be coming to NYC and I wanted to do something high fashion with a twist of grunge, she assured me that she would cover everything. At the time I knew nothing about New York, the locations the styling. However, we made it happen jumping from an Uber to a ferry to a bus to walking though the streets of Wall Street.

Once we started shooting and I showed Shyloh the first 10 images her eyes glistened and she told me she loved those style of images. Everything afterwards just flowed into place from flagging down taxi cabs, modeling for construction workers etc she was effortless in shooting. 

Age or Denim

Denim, the all-American textile that continues to be a staple in 2015.
But, what if even the classic need a dose of modernization?
 
This is exactly what Spring 2015 has in store for us, as denim pushes the envelope of fashion into fun and quirky shapes and silhouettes. Daring denim styles have been waiting to make then new and improving appearances and designers for their positions across by exaggerating ‘denim-on-denim’ looks. Straight from the runaways were loose, relaxed silhouettes in dark denim washes, which wrapped models in full on jumpsuits. Long maxi skirts, and also introducing ‘the little denim dress’. The denim jacket will still be with us but with heaver embellishments such as 3D beading, lace ups and quilting details.
 
Overall, denim is no longer a title-reserved exclusively for jeans. This time, its reinventing denim like we’ve never seen it before. The return of distressed denim, including intricate and vintage-inspired repair and restricting detailing this year. There’s this huge 70’s resurgence happening right now, and it’s a denim trend that’s spot-on. Skinny jeans have become a classic staple for every woman’s wardrobe, and celebs have been embracing the skinniest of jeans with the plumpest of bottoms. Everyone needs to experiment with new denim technology; the infusion of ‘athleisure’ and comfort in the market, is really being perfected and is now offered in multiple fits, colors, and lengths with Lyca infusion and retention retaining. Who doesn’t want the perfect jean that never loses its shape and beyond comfortable?
Have you checked your denim stash lately? Maybe it’s time to get yourself a new pair.
