I was happy to oblige when Fridays Magazine out of Zurich reached out for me to illustrate some great street style for a coats round up. Check them out.
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.

I captured my perspective and then raced back to my studio to work from the reference photos.
