I've felt a little bit like Carrie Bradshaw these past two days getting to spend my hours staring at beautiful designs in Oscar de la Renta's showroom.
On Tuesday I spent the day covering fittings. Peter puts a ton of detail into the fittings, looking at the model at least 3 times prior to approving the look. With such precision, he tweeks the outfit until it is perfection. The set is completely quiet, minus the faint Kid Cudi music playing on the laptop of the photographer capturing photos of the looks.
Day of show, there were many familiar faces. I got to work with Esther Langham again, who was doing ponies on all the models. The effortless pony was chic and ideal for any resort look. The looks ranged from tweed jackets to ball gowns bright in colors. Turquoise belts and chains of jewels added to the looks for extra glam.
Being a presentation, I had the capability to shoot backstage for the first show and runway for the following two shows. The intimate crowds at each viewing, provided me with space to shoot from multiple angles while not being confined to a "pit" with 30+ photographers. Peter got up at the beginning of each presentation and talked about the collection very informally before joining the group himself to watch.
Oscar de la Renta is a brand anyone would be honored to work for and I am just filled with joy that I could spend time photographing for them this week.
