Sunday night Julia and I had the pleasure of watching the VCU Fashion Department showcase the designs of their many talented students. A packed house at the VMFA watched over 190 looks come down the runway and there was no shortage of applause. We saw spectacular, sheer gowns, nude embellished catsuits, day dresses and a pair of embroidered jodhpurs that were to die for (see detail below) and more of the amazing menswear line previewed earlier here by senior Margaret Arlow who showed her well crafted denim and leather separates. Sheer was the word of the night and we loved the daring of some of the looks. There was no shortage of color either as you will see in my snaps below.
We were thrilled to see so many Modelogic models on the runway do thing their thing and had a fantastic time in general. Thanks again goes to the wonderful Deidra Arrington, Donna Reamy, and Kim Guthrie from the fashion department for always including us in this great night ( and the great seats 🙂 )
Congratulations to all the students and faculty on a job well done!
As promised, here are some samples of the full tests that Kris and Erik shot of our talent here in the Richmond office. Everyone looks AMAZING thanks to Kris and Erik and makeup and hair by Logan Greenwood and Victoria Berkeley. Spring is such a busy season for us here in the mid-Atlantic – these photos are sure to drum up lots of client interest.
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.
Spring time is upon us and our Chicago office is gearing up for a very busy season. Andrea, Dan, and Ari have been busy scouting and developing new talent for our fashion board – check out some of the beauties that they have discovered below! Each girl has such a unique look – can’t wait to see how they grow over the next few months.
First up: Lucy B…. love, love, love those curls!
I won’t lie… I’m spazzing out over this new editorial of our girl Kathleen just out in Vogue Italia.
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!

Our beautiful Kathleen M is spending a few months in Sydney soaking up the sun, building her portfolio, and booking work. Just before she left she had the pleasure of shooting the latest lookbook for Urban Outfitters! This gives us just the taste of summer that we’ve been longing for out here on the east coast… who else is tired of below freezing temps? We’re trying not to be TOO jealous of Kathleen’s southern hemisphere stay, and are so excited to see what happens next for her.
Check out the full feature here.
Our friend and model Gabe Witmer just shared these gorgeous shots with us today. I love black and white stories (takes me back to my tri-x days in college) and this one is really lovely. Gabe is a busy man these days, traveling to bookings in and out of the US, you may recognize him from his many catalog clients Thanks for sharing Gabe!
Julia here! It’s a little weird to write a blog post in the first person, but here I am! Two months ago, as I am sure many of the talent and clients that I email on a daily basis noticed: my name changed. All of my dreams came true and I became Mrs. Rabin! Woo!
We were very blessed to have so many supportive people involved in the planning and execution of our day… I could go on and on about how great everyone was to work with, but I think I will keep it short and sweet and let the pictures speak for themselves. We wanted our day to be about us: from the food (pizza, hot wings, a donut tower instead of a cake, candy, Redbull and craft beer) to the ceremony (we got married in James Madison’s greenhouse with all of the people we care about surrounding us – 360 degrees of love!) to the reception (good food and an insane dance party).
The art director of Virginia Living Magazine, who is one of my favorite clients to work with because of her kindness and class, was kind enough to pick up our wedding and it is featured in the latest issue (picture attached!) so go out and grab a copy!
If anyone is getting married in the near future, I would highly recommend all of the vendors listed below. All were so easy to work with, so kind, and made our day insanely special.
