Stylist Picks: Methods.
When I am compiling the images from Style.com to make these round ups, I don’t read any reviews before hand. I go with my gut instincts. Sometimes I watch the runway video (for the shows I did and did not attend) to see how the clothes move. Since I am reacting from my stylist gut, I am thinking about the women who get to wear these styles. There is a difference from who wears McQueen and Vuitton to who wears J.Crew and Kate Spade. Some designers we can only take inspiration from while others are easily attainable.
It is not until after I make my Stylist Picks that I begin to research into the designer’s inspiration and motivations for a collection. Sometimes after collecting that information my appreciation for the show broadens. Sometimes it changes over time. Sometimes as I view more and more collections in detail I see elements repeating themselves by different designers. I find the collective consciousness of fashion to be truly fascinating.
I have been on tumblr for a few years now and this space has grown and changed just like I have and just like fashion itself does. And just like life itself, it is not always consistent but I appreciate those of you who are interested and keep coming back for more.
The Official “Safe and Sound” Video Premiere!
Watch as exuberant dancers from various eras and cultures participate in a dance off inspired by Capital Cities and the majestic setting of the Los Angeles Theatre.
I had the pleasure of working with the talented group Capital Cities on the music video for the single Safe and Sound. I had such a fun time styling these great guys. Get ready for your new favorite summer jam!
