Real Simple Magazine "Fall's Ladylike Style"
A stylist for Real Simple magazine had me working with the very hands-on photographer Melvin Sokolsky who has been working in the industry since the 60's and has a signature installation based photographic style. He is best known for a series of photographs from a Harper's 1963 "Bubble" shoot, where he had a model floating over the river Seine in Paris. For this shoot he worked with an amazing set designer, creating a structure reminiscent of late 1980's architecture. I created an aged teal wall treatment which resembled mossy concrete. This juxtaposed against the classic 50's fashions gave the styling a modern feel.
