I added original art to my shop including a few fresh live painting pieces from NYFW–The Whit Presentation.
I’m beyond excited share the Prinkshop lookbook, shop and site images I creative directed and produced with an amazing all female team including: Founder: Pamela Bell, Photographer: Meredith Jenks, Hairstylist: Rubi Jones, Stylist: Jessica Roberts, Makeup/model: Mical Klip, and models: Sasha Frolova, Manu Kondo and Tamar Sagre-Lewis (via Surface Models).
Prinkshop is the brainchild of one of the Kate Spade founders, Pamela Bell. Pamela’s passion for social justice, freedom of speech, humanity, art and graphic design lead her to found Prinkshop. She believes business can be profitable and socially beneficial. Prinkshop identifies issues that need to be addressed; the bold, text-based graphic products feature issues ranging from sex trafficking to education, homelessness, and marriage equality. Prinkshop finds trailblazing organizations working in each of the issues, partners with them, and donates 30% of profits to their causes. Everything is produced in the US.
My final project for NYFW was for Marc Jacobs. They just posted one of these to tumblr.
Marchesa invited me backstage during NYFW to capture my perspective before the models hit the runway. Their gowns are utterly magical. The details are beyond exceptional. Models floated around in ombre toile and shimmering gold. It was something out of A Midsummer Night’s Dream rather than a rainy night in NYC. Anyway, I illustrated these images for them to share on Instagram.
