BEHIND THE SCENES…. Miami Photo Shoot for Black Tie Affair Holiday 2012


Shireen Sandoval

Back home and back to work from a whirlwind trip to Miami!~ Now that I have been able to gather my thoughts and get a grip on my excitement from such an awesome day and fantastic photo shoot I want to take a minute to thank some really AMAZING people that made it all happen!!

First and foremost I want to that the incredibly GORGEOUS Shireen Sandoval for putting this all together!~ She saw something in me and my designs and that in itself was huge for me, but to put an entire photo and film production team together was above and beyond what I had hoped for!!~ Not only that… I could not have had a more perfect model for this collection!~ It is my depiction of “Old Hollywood” ALL THE WAY and all the glitz and glam it brings This woman exudes these trates to the nth degree!~

Stylist Shari Bloch and Designer Jill Zaleski

Shari Richter-Bloch was the Stylist on this project and we have been working together for over a month sending photos and working on putting wardrobe together!! When you see the images you will most definitely think that we were working side by side visiting shops to find JUST the right thing as EVERY piece of clothing selected was made for the collection it was warn with!~ Her ability to see a crease, a spec of dust, or a thread in the back of Shireen’s jumper, remove it and smooth it out so that it was PERFECT (in the dark I might add) is a skill all on it’s own… She had displayed several of my pieces in a way that just fit. I wanted to incorporate as many pieces as possible and if they did not fit on her body Shari found a different way to display that just worked!~ All I have to say is WoW!!



Kelley and Fabian Carrillo and their production company “Simply Life” http://www.simplylife.tv/were the production duo that captured the entire day on film!~ If you know me you know that being interviewed makes me VERY nervous, so they would catch me on my off moments. When I was watching the shoot they had the camera sound on and just talked to me not knowing they were recording me to get me at my comfort level!! So professional and kind!~ I felt like I was with old friends the entire time!~

Black Tie Affair Short Film



Two makeup changes was two much to ask but they made it happen thanks to Javier Lucero who captured the Old Hollywood glam look like he was born to do this and then switch it to high fashion and edgy in an instant was magnificent to see!!




Mentally Preparing…!


Jewelry For Shoot




They gave me 4 wardrobe changes… 3 hair changes thanks to Angel Torres there was NEVER a hair out of place not to mention the ability to take it from one extreme to another in an istant was unbelievable unless you are there to witness it!~






Her team was AmaZing and every photo that Jesse Swinger “The Photographer” (assisted by Jessie Neft) took was golden!~ I think he must have been born with a camera in his hand!! The entire shoot was done in the dark using his lighting which is something I have NEVER see before but watching the images pop up on his computer screen I thought I was looking at a Vogue Magazine COVER!!!




 I Love all of you. Thank you so much for your hard work and your EXCELLENCE you deliver ♥
