Lucy by Kris Lou and Erik Robert

A couple of weeks ago, we had invited our friends Kris Lou and Erik Robert down to Richmond to spend a week with us and update some of our talent’s books. Thankfully, Kris was able to slip down here and shot some AMAZING images that we can’t wait to share. This girl can do it all! We loved her sweet, laid-back personality and the way she managed to draw this edgy coolness from each of our talent. While you are waiting for the shots from the Mid-Atlantic office, feast your eyes on the latest test that Lucy (from our Midwest office) shot with Kris and Erik. There is just something about Lucy – you can’t take your eyes off of her. And, what a body on this girl! It serves a nice reminder that bathing suit season is right around the corner… if it could ever stop snowing.

IMPACT 2014 – VCU Fashion Preview

This week Julia and I were so pleased to be invited to the VCU Fashion Department’s 3rd annual fashion show preview.  The event was held at the gorgeous Scott House at VCU and we were greeted by a dozen or so excited VCU Fashion students as well as Interim Chair, Donna Reamy, Kim Guthrie, Asst. Chair and our friend Deidra Arrington, Professor of Fashion Merchandising.

The theme of the show this year is IMPACT, which allows the students to define what kind of impact their designs will have on the audience and what kind of impact they, themselves, will have on their community.

We saw some pretty amazing pieces from 5 senior design students. First was Brittany Golding with her urban sportswear. She used tribal prints, quilted leather and made a very cool convertible skirt that goes from office to party in seconds.  Tyler O’Neal showed us his futuristic day looks.  One made of wool suiting  in a sunshine yellow with a diamond quilt pattern, the other including gorgeous hammered satin trouser shorts.   Next was Aleshia Greene, whose urban casual dresswear leaned to the masculine side with broad shoulders and leather details, but still kept it feminine with body hugging spandex all around.  Noela Tian presented two gorgeous looks inspired by Japanese design and calligraphy. Her flowing sleeves and pants included magnet fasteners that allowed sleeves to convert to scarves in a flash. Lastly was Margaret Arlow who was the only designer to show menswear.  She showed her  custom jeans with amazing pocket details and her own leather stamped label, and a fantastic leather jacket with handmade clasps with a soft cotton henley as a base.  Her construction and tailoring were so high quality, that her looks were more reminiscent of Barney’s men’s department than a student fashion show.

Seniors Jessica Decker, Director of the show and Amber Nichols , Asst. Director are planning an amazing show, held again at the VMFA on May 4th at 8PM. Tickets go on sale April 1st and don’t wait, this show will sell out fast!  You can purchase tickets online at http://www.showclix.com/event/impact14

Take a peek below to see  some shots from the preview! Congratulations to all the VCU students involved in putting together what promises to be a great night.

Miami born photographer Vicki Forshee captures Kathleen’s ethereal beauty perfectly in this story on spring coats.  Wonderfully styled by Kusum Lynn, we are loving the mix of the “trashy” backdrop with the prim look of the outfits… Well done Ladies!
