Back to Nature with Tribal Wear

It drives me, ignites me, is my natural high, and rejuvenates my creativity. What I am referring is the art of styling. I was recently asked to style a photo-shoot with the theme “back to nature” with the inspiration of tribal prints.

I take my challenges to extremes as I find a local and authentic, tribal clothing boutique and design shop called Georgy’s Fashion’s off El Cajon Boulevard. There is tribal wear and head dresses with fabric straight from Africa. I was enthralled in seeing the story board come to life. The setting was to be outdoors in a shrub environment, but alas, “nature called” for rain that day. So, instead, we shot indoors at the photographers home with a backdrop.

Specially created jewelry, just for this shoot, was made by San Diego Jewelry Designer Artemisa Rivas. Combined with Georgy’s Fashions and some trend tribal from H&M gave this shoot a feel of prestigious heritage. This was a collaboration of talent and skills: photographed by Lisa Ormsby, styled by Aubree Lynn, make-up by Regard Tang, and modeled by Rylee Smith.

We had a highly motivated, efficient and creative session as we worked to be selected as a submission for Japanese Magazine.

Model Rylee Smith wears jewelry by Artemisa Rivas and wardrobe provided by Aubree Lynn. . Her hair and makeup is the work of Regard Tang. Photographer is Lisa Ormsby.

I am thankful to all the girls, H&M, Georgy’s Fashions and Artemisa Riva for making this shoot come to life and provoke the lens, and in return, hopefully give the editor an eyeful of pleasant approval.
