We had our Autumn 2012 look book shoot last Wednesday at The University Club of New York.. We had so much camaraderie, cooperation and talent around it was the best photo shoot we’ve ever had so far. It is a blessing to work with people you love, respect and admire. I felt incredibly lucky throughout the day. Jennifer my incredible business partner and Monica our photographer took some backstage pictures and here they are. It takes a lot of very talented people to pull this endeavors off. As usual we collaborated with Artist Luiny Rivera Guelpi from Filili and the Iris Chacón inspired jewelry she did for us was amazing, is all vintage and my own fabric scraps put together in the most genius way!
Hair and make up were crucial this season, Iris Chacón was known for her hair and make up, she was a beauty icon for all women of my generation. In the hands of Karlo and George Ortiz, Laura Wilson our model ( and also a photographer) and friend morphed into the 2012 version of Iris. Laura was even kind enough to lend us her boyfriend Collin for a couple of shots. Thank you!
Thank you Karlo and George for a gorgeous hair and make up. Thanks to you both this concept became real. Karlo you can read my mind, is one of your many gifts! It turned out exactly as I pictured in my head.
Of course this vision could materialize without garments that fit properly. Ours were flawless and that would be thanks to Mayumi Yamada, always ready with pins and scissors!
I want to thank everybody because the most important lesson of the Eco-venture so far has been team work. We all merge our visions and talents towards the same goal and thats how great things happen. Photographer Monica Felix and our most skilled camera man Omar know this very well that’s why they are so good toguether with their tools.
I guess what I attempting to say is: GRACIAS FAMILIA !
Now here are the photos of our day:
