Wednesday

Autumn is a second spring where every leaf is a flower.

My friend, Tim and I were thinking about doing a fashion shoot after we met on the set of Once Upon a Time in 1972. We decided we would collaborate on several projects, including me costume designing his feature film shot by an academy award nominated cinema photographer this summer. We are also planning on shooting numerous fashion stills together (with me dressing the models). In this case, it was our first shoot and I couldn't very well find anyone else to fit into my Great Grandmother's dress from the 1950's, so I became the model for the shoot. Hope you enjoy.
My mother gave me the hat a few years ago, besides this, I've only found one other occasion I found it appropriate for. I am trying to get better at that type of thing (wearing more period pieces).
These were shot in Crystal Lake Park in Champaign, Illinois (where I attend The University of Illinois for costume design)
photos by Nathan Adhikari. He is a very fun photographer to work with and very patient. I really enjoyed working with him! Hopefully we will have more fashion photography to show you soon! :)
