Finishing NYFW with a bang - Oscar de la Renta’s beautiful garden with arches set the tone for their fall collection. Bold red lips and statement handbags. I admire Fernando Garcia and Laura Kim’s eye. They truly know how to dress the modern woman. (They dressed Regina King and Lupita Nyong'o for the Oscars).
Another special shoot this NYFW for Coach. I had the pleasure of shooting the celebrity wall - before celebs took their seats at the show. The studio set up allowed for more intimate portraiture and unique front row coverage compared to other shows. Flip through to see some of my favorites from the show.
I had the pleasure of shooting house for Veronica Beard this season. Their colorful collection was mirrored by the atmosphere set forth by the brand - fun and vibrant. A nice break from the serious nature of NYFW, the models danced and posed for lookbook and detail shots before taking their place on tree stumps in a pine tree forest.

This was my second season working with IMG during New York Fashion Week. I covered Jonathan Cohen, ADEAM, Self Portrait, Cushnie, Brock Collection and Jeremy Scott for the social team. It was such an eclectic group of shows - making my portfolio more diverse. Check out the fashion week section of my website for more highlights from the shows.
I am finally catching up on my blog coverage from NYFW. I figured I would combine all my T Magazine coverage into one post.
I shot the always envelope pushing Eckhaus Latta. Located in Bushwick warehouse, models sported see through outfits, slicked back hair and green clay swiped on their arms and body. I created one of my favorite bodies of work - hence the separation omy website. It felt different than my past NYFW coverage and I felt it was strong enough to stand alone as a unique reportage of the show and designer's creative outlook.
Oscar de la Renta
Definitely a contrast to Oscar de la Renta. Held at Sotherby's, the location alone expresses the difference in the designers aesthetic. Splatter paint dresses, sequins and pant suits graced the halls and escalator entrance of the runway. Bella was certainly the star as photographer's flocked her getting her makeup done. Nicki Minaj, Paris and Nikki Hilton, and Zosia Mamet were in attendance alongside Anna Wintour.
Lastly, I wrapped my T Magazine coverage with Carolina Herrera. She hosted the first ever fashion show at the MOMA. Iconic. The bright bold color collection accompanied the greens in the garden. Lily Aldridge, Cameron Dallas andMichelle Monaghan sat front row in support of the designer. Models dressed and prepped amongst the greatest pieces of art and installations in their I heart NY t-shirts.
This was by far the prettiest runway I shot all week. I shot for Monique covering backstage, first looks, front row and runway. Bows tied on pony tails matched the handbags with bows hanging from the straps. Thick brows, nude lips and dark nails (which happens to be my everyday look) were also seen backstage. I can't wait to see what she has in store for bridal!
Girls in matching tracksuits remind me of my middle school days (i.e. Juciy), but Tory out did herself. Models wore matching Tory Sport tracksuits that made you feel like their were some sort of elite model Olympic beauty team. The show was held at the Whitney, where the runway, hair and makeup and first looks took over 2 floors.
Sara Sampaio, Taylor Hill, Romee Strijd, Stella Maxwell and Hailey Baldwin were in attendance. Tory watched rehearsals and was never seen without perfect smile. If she was stressed, you wouldn't have been able to notice. I snuck into the room where all the clothes were on rack and drooled over the pearl shoes and oversized pearl necklaces.
When Prabal asked to work with me again, I immediately responded YES. all CAPS.
I adored working with the team when I was shooting their BTS for their pre-fall lookbook and was thrilled to work with the creative and passionate team once again.
"Just do your thing." No shot list. No requirements. No off-limit areas. I was able to capture, explore and create content for their social channels with no restrictions. This isn't always the case backstage at shows, even if you are shooting for the designer themselves. Hailey Baldwin was their "star" backstage. She was also on my model bucket list and was eager to shoot her transformation of pre-hair & makeup to off the runway.
The cherry on top, seeing my work immediately on their homepage of their website.
Back shooting for T this NYFW season and I couldn't be more blessed. Monse was the perfect start to my fashion week. Red lip classic, sequins and a "de-constructed" runway and one small photographer attempting to yet again not fan girl out in front of Zosia Mamet.
