I am behind on blogging and catching up on some old shoots - flashback to these behind the scenes, portraits and campaign shots for Coach. Shot at Milk Studios in West Hollywood. As always, she is precious gem to work with.
I spent the week prior to the Met Gala covering the making of Selena's dress in the workshop. Capturing the details from sketch to red carpet.
Her custom dress got made attention on Vogue Magazine and went viral. Selenators adored the angelic dressed inspired by Queen Esther. Her bag even quoted “A woman who fears the Lord is a woman who shall be praised” in Selena's handwriting.
She cheered champagne with Stuart in her hotel room and gushed about her Heavenly Bodies dress before heading out to the carpet.
Thrilled to be able to share these images is an understatement.
My assignment for Coach this season was to work exclusively with Selena Gomez to create unique content for Coach's social media. Having worked with Selena before, I was excited to create new work of her and spend some time with her prior to the show.
I always end my show coverage by shooting Stuart with the guest post-show congratulating him on his collection and asking about his inspiration. Spotted backstage was Storm Reid, of the new upcoming movie A Wrinkle in Time, Tommy Dorfman of 13 Reasons Why, Hip-Hop Artists Joey Badass and of course Artist Petra Collins.

Finally catching up on my blogging after the holidays. The end of 2017 was crazy for me. I worked a lot with Coach and spent a fair amount of time in the Coach workshop.
I captured the making of Selena's American Music Awards' leather dress and the prairie dress she wore to the British Fashion Awards in London with Stuart. From the glitter patches to carefully stitching vintage lace, Coach pays close attention to detail. I love spending time in the workshop watching the team put together these incredible pieces for her to wear on red carpets.
She stayed way past her allotted time because she insisted on chatting with everyone who came. Selena greeted all the fans with a hug, signed posters and took lots and lots of photos. Just a few days later she announced she had a kidney transplant. I've never met a celebrity/notable more inspirational than Selena. It was an honor to spend the day with heron 5th ave at the Coach store to celebrate her new collaboration bag with Stuart.
