THOM BROWNE: FALL/WINTER 2014

THOM BROWNE: FALL/WINTER 2014

THOM BROWNE- Fall-Winter 2014 068

Thom Browne’s does not put on a simple fashion show. His shows are an experience. Something rarely found in New York, that one would see more commonly during Paris’ Couture week.

THOM BROWNE- Fall-Winter 2014 002

My third time seeing one of his collections presented  is something I’ll never forget.
I arrived backstage relatively early, at the tail end of the hair and makeup test. It’s always fun to see a preview of what’s to…

Jazz Age Lawn Party: Summer 2014

Jazz Age Lawn Party - Summer 2014 033

The Jazz Age Lawn Party, held two weekends a year on NYC’s Governor’s Island, is my hands down favorite “Summer in New York” event to attend. This year, for the first time, I went in both June and August.

I still had a blast, but my first visit in June was very hot, and the event seemed weirdly overcrowded (a first in the many years I’ve been attending). Yesterday’s event was much more laid…

Katie Gallagher- Backstage Fall-Winter 2014 006

Katie Gallagher is a designer who I’ve followed since nearly the beginning of her career. Season after season, she impresses me with her continual growth as a designer and artist. Few other young designers in NYC so accurately conceptualize and transition a theme or idea into a clothing collection.

For Fall 2014, Katie’s collection Wonderland was inspired by abandoned amusement parks. The idea…

ROSIE ASSOULIN F/W 2014

Rosie Assoulin FW14 -29

I went in to the Rosie Assoulin show not knowing much about the designer other than she was developing a strong reputation for evening wear, and that she’d earned a place on many “designers to watch” lists over the past year. What I found when I arrived completely blew me away.

Rosie Assoulin FW14 -17

Most models were in the midst of getting the finishing touches put on their hair and makeup looks for the show. But a…

Reflections On A Copyright Violation

Reflections On A Copyright Violation

Karlie Kloss instagram

Just wanted to take a minute to thank everyone who has read, shared, or discussed my copyright violation story. The number of people who’ve seen it, and the support I’ve received has been amazing.

As I said before, I debated posting about it at all. After a lot of thought, I decided opening a discussion on copyright issues, and showing exactly how something as simple as lack of image…

What Happens When a Supermodel Violates Your Copyright

What Happens When a Supermodel Violates Your Copyright

This post is something I’ve struggled with for months, and debated even writing. But it’s time to share my story, and explain why I’ve been absent.

Basically, the short version is Karlie Kloss improperly used one of my images. It showed up on her instagram account last September, without credit. (Point of reference: many of the images before and after mine are credited.)

As readers of my blog…

Flashback: Chanel F/W 2010 Ad Campaign— Behind the Scenes

Flashback: Chanel F/W 2010 Ad Campaign– Behind the Scenes

Chanel f/w '10 Campaign: 14

The past few weeks after NYFW ended, I’ve been sick more days than not. (Really sick.) Due to feeling so under the weather, some of my recaps have been delayed a bit. So what better time to do a flashback Friday post celebrating the four-year anniversary of one of my favorite shoots ever: Behind the scenes of the Fall/Winter 2010 Chanel Ad Campaign shoot, on Manhattan’s Lower East Side.

Chanel f/w '10 Campaign: Abbey Lee Kershaw

OSCAR DE LA RENTA Fall/Winter 2014

OSCAR DE LA RENTA- Fall-Winter 2014 093

One of the shows I look forward to the most each season is Oscar de la Renta. I photograph a lot of shows, but every time I attend an ODLR show, I feel like I am truly witnessing something magical, rarely seen on the runways of New York Fashion Week.

As with the last few seasons, I arrived a few hours before the show to photograph the backstage preparations (and the show!) for the official Oscar…
