I was excited when Christian Ramirez, a TV host at Telemundo, asked me to shoot J Mendel's show. I liked the flowy and geometric style that was on display at the show; very inspirational! I was able to get some great backstage shots of some of the models practicing their walks, as well as of the actual show.
The day after fashion week ended I was invited by my very good friend Nora Kobrenik to visit the Zang Toi showroom. Nora couldn't make the show during fashion week, but still wanted to see the newest collection. Of course I was super excited when she invited me!
The showroom was absolutely beautiful. All the decor was either black, white or mirrored, except for the clothing of course. It was super stylish! Zang Toi himself wasn't there, but we were shown around by Steven Ong. Steven was really nice and explained the whole collection to Nora. It was really cool to see the clothing from close up. I've only ever seen them on the runway. They looked so elegant, I was afraid to touch them, but they didn't mind if we did. He also had his sketches hanging on the wall, that was really interesting to see how each piece comes together.
One of my favorite shows at fashion week last month was Carolina Herrera. The Collection was stunning; so elegant and classy, including the music (I recorded a bit of it on my phone so I wouldn’t forget it) You can hear it here: http://youtu.be/RdbDBZ7lsjA. it is “A whimsical riff on Beethoven’s Kreutzer Sonata by Tom Hodge” I wish I could own every piece that came down that runway. After the show was over I was very lucky to go back stage and meet her. Here are some photos from the show:
