This past LA Fashion Week, I had the opportunity to work with designer Tai Collins of Blackbuttafli once again.
It was great to be able to work with some familiar faces as well as meeting a whole new slew of models. Tai put together a variety of different lines for her solo show and I was totally in love with her swim line. We had some time to shoot some more promotional type material with the models and we did what we do best in LA – use the alleys!
The fashion show was a blast! Great job to everyone involved: Tai’s family for helping with all the details, the makeup and hair artists, and the models. Although shows never go without glitches, everyone pulled together to put on a great show for the audience.
Designer: Tai Collins
Models: Danielle, Jai, Janelle, Ana, Magdalene, Fabiulus, Dela
Makeup/Hair: Alicia Chen, Toni Sanders, Jesse Caseres
This post is a bit overdue, but…
One of my dear friends is a pâtissière and runs Miso Bakes. She is extremely hardworking and even more talented. Her cake designs are some of the best that I have ever seen (and I’m obsessed with cakes). She is skilled and sweet so you can only imagine how excited I was when she emailed me telling me that one of her creations was to be in Martha Stewart Weddings! Although she’s humble and say it’s undeserved, I think she deserved every bit of it. I feel blessed that she has faith in me and my work and always feel so lucky when she asks me to shoot her cakes.
You can read her post about her Lemon & Mint cake being on Martha Stewart Weddings. Like her, I grew up watching Martha Stewart on TV (seriously – ask my mom about it). I always loved being super domestic – cooking, DIY household things, gardening, etc. so it meant so much more to me that Stella asked me to shoot her cake for Martha Stewart Weddings. You can read the article and look at the photos here in The Brides Guide.
This cake looks so fresh and summery and is both modern and retro. Be sure to follow Miso Bakes on her cake adventures and see what other amazing things she creates: Blog / Facebook
PS: I cannot wait for the day when she makes my wedding cake (and I’m not even engaged yet).
Designer Courtney Chiang just launched her official website! On it are the photos we worked on for her Spring/Summer 2011 line.
Check it out and don’t forget to follow her on facebook – she has many more great things coming!
