Parlour Shoot

This weekend the photoshoot for Parlour's Creme De La Creme took place. I feel honoured that I was able to be involved, featured as 1 of 10 Albertan designer breaking out in the local industry. Such a lovely day, hanging out with fellow designers; making connections and having fun.
The dress I made was inspired by mid-century fashion, very Jackie O! You cannot see here but the train on the back of the gown was 1.5 meters of pleated fabric with netting underneath. The model, Court Baker- based out of Mode Edmonton was fantastic. A slight bump in the road, as the dress was too small, I managed to corset her up with some safety pins and a shoelace- graciously provided my one of the male models. I love having that pressure on when you only have a certain amount of time and it all comes down to practical problem solving!
The energy on set was fantastic, I feel blessed to be getting started in this line of work. This was a great experience before my big move, I am so excited to head to the big apple!!!

I am in love with Galliano's work in his most recent Couture collection. It's like candy for the eye; the volume, the fabrics and the colour!!!

New Grace

My life has been changing so much within the last week it is unbelievable! It's very peculiar that these changes have centered on the lunar eclipse and planetary shift that occurred this last Saturday. As I've been preparing to move to NYC this August 22nd, I've been faced head on with the reality of my current lifestyle and relationships. This has been an extremely healthy process for me, particularly in rooting out certain things in my life that no longer are allowing me to grow but rather are inhibiting me. In doing so I have had to make difficult and painful decisions, but I believe in the long run these are the best choices I can make for myself. Although it's an emotional experience I have felt much personal gratification and the release of unneeded burden. I have felt a new surge of energy flowing throughout me; body and soul, as well as a new outlook on life with a much more positive and healthy attitude. At the same time, I feel as I am growing forward I am accepting the little bits of myself that need to be left behind. Everyday seems like a new adventure with new purpose and possibilities. My fear of the unknown strengthens me for the unfolding of my future.

This is an amazing editorial from my Astrological month of February- yes I am an Aquarian! I have been feeling very centered as a result of these shifts I am currently undergoing, and my inner bohemian has been emerging. These images inspired me and put me in a great mood this morning, hope you enjoy.

I love the whole 1950's dialogue in this shoot. My personal aesthetic seems similar at times.
