Clothing Fashion Returns to the Scene

I think all fashion-creative personalities said thank God for August when we were again able to safely practice social distancing and produce some amazing work for the fashion industry. The month for me was a long time coming. I had been waiting for the opportunity to style again and was so happy when it was made possible.

Over a period of four-consecutive Saturdays, LA model, Amy Taylor, and I worked together to produce photos for a couple of fashion industry magazines. We were scheduled to do two glam, and two fitness styles. In anticipation, I was excited to leave my house and create to my hearts content.

My co-stylist, Jesse J, worked with various LA showrooms to select some amazing outfits and accessories, including clothes, shoes, jewelry and headwear. It was a work in progress, because I wouldn’t know until getting on set what I had to work with and coordinate. 

Since my home base is San Diego, there was a lot of travel involved. However, the routine became normal, with each weekend providing lots of creative energy and constant change. 

The first two shoots we focused on glam designs, which encompassed gowns, cocktail dresses, pant suits with fun, “diamondesque” jewels, and heels, boots, and even cowboy hats. The two properties that were selected for the photo shoots were within the LA region and offered some gorgeous settings to complement the model and clothing.

The last two shoots were fitness oriented and included weights, yoga mats, and running shoes. Having never done fitness styling before, the goal was to create a sporty fun vibe. One of the properties was my dream location, Weeses Pieces.  That’s because it’s the same location where Britney Spears and Beyonce Knowles created some of their music videos. 

On top of the challenge of creating a perfect staging was the fact that the temperature reached over100 degrees, and there was smoke in the distance from the LA fires.  We heard random roars of thunder, dealt with dark cloud cover, and then experienced the most gorgeous sunlight beaming through the clouds.  During our last sunset shots, the sky opened up and it started raining big, cold drops.  The pitter-patter raindrops on the pool made the water dance and added an unexpected element of photo worthy shots.

Additionally, during one of the weekends, I got to style a virtual fashion show for Designer Territa Torres.  Torres was working with other designers to produce a September, virtual fashion show. The results are forthcoming.

During August, the first virtual show for Kids Fashion Week DMV took place. During the week, Kids Fashion Week DMV hosted a free “Playshop” fair, which promotes learning through creative play. Many of the vendors were child entrepreneurs who are making a name for themselves in business and the creative arts. I assisted from San Diego by providing virtual swag bags and joining in to host the live show.  However, due to COVID-19, we were unable to produce the San Diego show as initially planned. Please stay tuned kids of San Diego; we are planning something before this year ends.

Despite all the heaviness in the world, August was an amazing month. For me, it was filled with creative energy, good people who share a truly genuine love for the fashion arts. If it’s not obvious, I love my job!

Thanks to all of the amazingly inspirational people who invited me to be a part of their photo shoots, shows and events. I appreciate their trust in me to share my talents and skills, and hope the results give them joy and pleasure.
