Laney on the edge

I recently went to NYC where I stayed at the amazing Arlo Hotel and we had a glorious time soaking up all the rain. It is hard in LA when you only see the rain a handful of times a year, especially when it is your favorite weather.

I feel so lucky to photograph one of my favorite new models, Laney DeGrasse, who was as sweet as she is beautiful. My boyfriend held umbrellas as we shot in pink fuzziness looking out over a drizzly New York from the hotel's rooftop.

Since I left Wildfox and started shooting more and more, I realized I need a place to put all these personal photos, so I've started a "magazine" section in my portfolio where I can store them all in a nice way. Enjoy!

FETE, Champagne for breakfast

You may remember the photos I shot for FETE before, well we are back in the gardens and this time with the beautiful Juju.

I am so happy to share this shoot I did for my friend and colleague, Emily came to intern for me at Wildfox during my favorite years there, and she ended up as my full time assistant. Emily has magic in her fingertips, she went on to create this beautiful line that celebrates the petite girl. It is so her- magic, lace and easy bake ovens. 

Very proud and happy to support such a wonderful woman. Hope you enjoy the photos we created together.

The babes of Miami swim week

I was lucky enough to go back out to Miami for swim week this summer. Had so much fun doing this shoot for Fashion Gone Rogue in Miami! Love all these ladies.

Miami swim week is a special time of year, a lot of people travel to see the swim design shows and combine their love of fashion with a well needed tropical vacation. One thing really special about swim week is the buzz of excitement, in a way it’s indescribable. You fly in, get a tan (or a spray tan), swim in the warm ocean, lay on the beach chairs sipping on mojitos and gobbling down sticky sweet pineapple, with the smell of sunscreen and salt wafting around you and you just feel… happy. The humidity might contain a magic potion that makes you want to put on your smallest outfit and go out dancing all night, or maybe it’s the house music playing 24 hours a day in every hotel, but either way it’s thrilling. This is the first year I attended swim week without presenting my own brand, and it was amazing to watch Francesca Aiello feel the rush and stand behind the scenes, almost more fun to take it all in as an observer and contributor! The electricity backstage is magnetic and dreamy. We brought the 60’s to life for her line, “Frankie’s Bikinis” in a kitschy-cool style including a cardboard VW bus with smoke billowing out, trippy projections, my hand painted bell bottoms and pop art costumes. The girls screamed backstage as the rolling stones blared loudly. It’s beyond a good time, 10 minutes of pure adrenaline!

The models at swim week are some of the most confident, sexy and out going women I have met in my career. I felt it would be great capture that mood and round up a group that could rush down to the beach in between their crazy fitting schedule and get some soft, sexy pictures, all wearing Frankie’s bikinis. A big thank you to Wilhelmina Models Miami!

Here’s an interview I had with them so you can get to know a couple of the girls:

What's your background, where are you from?

Ashley Robbins: I was born here in Miami. But my parents are Cuban, Greek and Scottish.

Isabelle Boemeke: My background is mostly European, small percentages of native Brazilian, Middle eastern and Sub Saharan African. Originally from Brazil. 

Nereyda Bird:  Antigua/ Dominican Republic

Hannah Whelpley: I’m American, and I’m from Charlotte North Carolina

Amanda Li Paige:  I'm Chinese/Lithuanian but I am from somewhere over the rainbow on a little island called Oahu. 

Julia Freedman:  I'm from LA and I'm Hungarian and Russian!

When did you start modeling, how did it all begin?

Ashley Robbins: I started modeling when I was 16 after being scouted on south beach walking around with my mom!

Isabelle Boemeke: I started modeling about 6 years ago after being scouted outside my school in Brazil. 

Nereyda Bird: I started modeling last year! It all began when a scout named Susan Harrell introduced me to my mother agent Robin Basile.

Hannah Whelpley: I started when I was 14, and I was scouted in a mall in Charlotte. Wilhelmina scouted me through that agency and the rest is history!

Amanda Li Paige:   I was scouted when I was 7 years old at a restaurant to be photoshopped into a fairy for cards and frames. 

Julia Freedman:   I wanted to model when I was 12. My aunt and uncle owned a clothing store and a jean company owner asked my aunt for my contact information and I started to shoot line sheets for JET Jeans. One thing lead to the next, from little jobs to some bigger ones and then I actually shot for Frankie's Bikinis when I was 15! 

How many times have you done swim week?

Ashley Robbins: 5 years and counting

Isabelle Boemeke: Only once :)

Nereyda Bird: Once.

Hannah Whelpley: this is my 3rd year doing swim week 

Amanda Li Paige:  This past year was my second time. 

Julia Freedman:  2 times

Is it hard walking a runway wearing only a bikini? 

Ashley Robbins: why would walking in a bikini be any harder then walking in normal clothes. You wear confidence when you walk.

Isabelle Boemeke: Not really! When you're on the runway you can't see the people around you; besides, your body's high levels of adrenalin impede you from being too self conscious. 

Nereyda Bird: Of course not! Nothing's more freeing than wearing a bikini.

Hannah Whelpley: no, because bikini’s are so comfortable and it feels so natural in Miami.

Amanda Li Paige:    It actually feels more natural than wearing clothes for me, I'm still an island girl at heart. 

Julia Freedman:   It definitely is a little hard just thinking about all the different shapes and sizes of other girls and how close the crowd is to you. I'm not the tallest, most-skinny model and I know that, so I just embrace my body and skin that I'm in.

What's the best thing about Miami?

 Ashley Robbins: Being able to go into the water all year around, beautiful sunsets and croquetas  

Isabelle Boemeke: I love the relaxed environment. People are generally happy and not in a frenetic pace like the inhabitants of other big cities (like NY)! 

Nereyda Bird: How close together everything is here.

Hannah Whelpley: the beach, duh!

Amanda Li Paige:   I love the humidity, it is everything for the hair and skin. 

Julia Freedman:  The beach!!! I love the beach and the warm crystal water! 

What's your favorite flavor of ice cream?

 Ashley Robbins: Ben & Jerrys half baked flavor all the way 

 Isabelle Boemeke: It's a tie between Caramel Cone from Häagen Dazs... or Coconuts for Caramel by Ben and Jerry's.

Nereyda Bird: Vanilla, and mango.

Hannah Whelpley: Neopolitan

Amanda Li Paige:  Purple cow

Julia Freedman:   Cookie dough!

If you were a mermaid, what color hair and tail would you have?

Ashley Robbins: I would have long wavy hot pink hair and a lime green tail. 

Isabelle Boemeke: Black hair and black tail. I would be a pinup goth mermaid. 

Nereyda Bird: Yellow

Hannah Whelpley: Blond Hair & a green tail

Amanda Li Paige:   My hair would be brunette but filled with silver trinkets and my tail would be purple

Julia Freedman:  Pink hair and a rainbow tail! 

I've never heard someone pick a goth mermaid, and this is one of my favorite questions to ask people. I would LOVE to know a goth mermaid... yes please!

Atomic girls

My very last Collection for Wildfox! So bittersweet. Some of my favorite pieces here, just incredibly fun and rewarding to create. A lot of these weren't produced so don't be sad when you cant find them. 

I was inspired when I visited Eugene, Oregon to see my boyfriends mother, she told me about growing up with her Dad who worked on the Atomic bomb. Their town and family suffered illnesses from this and the story was so compelling it made me want to research the atomic age in America. I wanted to bring this weird point in history to life,

"think plastics, board housewives, robots and funny futuristic interpretations."

VENICE MYSTIC

I recently shot the Blue Life Venice Mystic look book! So lovely to work with Jena Goldsack again while she was in town, was really feeling the henna palm reader for Planet Blue, she lives in this mystical home near the water where she does psychic readings out of her kitchen, surfs in the morning, makes magical mushroom toast for breakfast, and looks into her own future on a daily basis. 

Thank you to all the amazing people who worked on this look book, the Planet Blue girls are truly magical, caring, giving, supportive and kind. It shows in the product and the store, it shows in the shoots.

Planet Mathilda

 starring the effervescent mathilda tolvanen, shot by me for planet blue!!

"Signed last August when she attended an open call at Paparazzi Model Management in Helsinki, Mathilda is one fantastic Finnish find. With her delicately sculptured features, lush mouth and clear innocent blue eyes, Mathilda is a knockout. Last month she visited Paris (during her school vacation) and was signed with IMG Paris. Next stop is probably Japan, where Mathilda’s kind of beauty is so in demand. This will certainly hone her modelling skills, so when the time is right Mathilda will be ready to waltz into the fashion capitals. " -Models.com

Shot in the Arts District with a little bit of a Fifth Element (if she were a painter living in LA) influence, we had a lot of fun! This house is available for rent on AirBNB in the Arts District neighborhood, and it's so pretty!

here is the Article I did for Racked LA:

DON'T MISS STORIES.FOLLOW RACKED LA

Since Angelenos couldn't make it to Wildfox's exciting fall 2015 presentation in New York, designer (and cat lover) Kimberley Gordon is exclusively revealing her Italian-inspired range's mood board, right here. Take a virtual trip to the Amalfi Coast below, and get ready to shop the La Dolce Vita collection at Wildfox's fantastical flagship soon!

"The initial thing that made me want to go Italian was Slim Aarons photographs. He photographed fabulous people in beautiful places, doing luxurious things. I loved the idea of doing nothing all year long, and I couldn't think of a better place than Italy."

50da6-img.jpg

"I’ve always had this obsession with the 90s, and that includes the movie Stealing Beauty. It’s all about the summer of losing her innocence in Italy, very cliché and easy but so fun to watch, it makes you want to be there eating and drinking with someone painting your portrait in the vineyards."

ae4af-insp_2-0.jpg

"The Amalfi Coast looks like a dream come true, I imagine girls in the 1960’s racing around in convertibles with big hair being blown in the warm air."

a29e8-img.jpg

"Elsa Martinelli was a huge Italian icon, I love how she's photographed so frequently on mopeds or scooters. It's like the quintessential Italian thing to do! I knew right away when I saw this photo of her we needed mopeds for our campaign."

29c3c-img.jpg

"With her big, beautiful features, dark hair, pouty mouth, voluptuous body and sexy attitude, Claudia Cardinale was a key ingredient in my inspiration for the designs. Cardinale has been a UNESCO goodwill ambassador for the Defense of Women's Rights since March 2000. In February 2011 the Los Angeles Times Magazine named Cardinale among the 50 most beautiful women in film history, I think she is the ultimate role model for a young girl and I definitely wanted to pay some tribute to her with the "Kiss me Im Italian" Sweater.  "I never felt scandal and confession were necessary to be an actress. I've never revealed my self or even my body in films. Mystery is very important."

41bfa-img.jpg

"Sophia Loren sets the stage for this collection, everything about her is just delicious. She is truly the face of the Female Italian film industry!"

b94d1-img.jpg

"Creating a restaurant environment was very important to me, we paid homage to carbs this season, which have recently been getting the cold shoulder with all the gluten free fads. I couldn't think of a better time to bring pasta into our lives, and creating a setting for that with both the show and the campaign was extremely fun. This is the restaurant Im dying to visit... Hotel Caruso. Don't you just wanna die there? Wow!"

Speaking of WINE… Marissa hosted a wine tasting at our party, so so fun. Don't forget to vote for Marissa A Ross on the Sav blog awards!!!! We need them votes ladies, send em in. Click on the image to go quickly vote for her.

Born on the 4th of July, WILDFOX

I wasn't born in the USA, I moved here when I was 11 from England and I've always been passionate about my American Dream! The 4th of July means a lot to me, it is a time to celebrate what it means to be able to work hard and achieve my goals here in California. There are so many things I love about being an American Girl at heart...

Driving down PCH looking out at the ocean, music blasting, sandy toes, towels on the seats, best friends singing...

The freedom to be a woman in control of her future, to have the privilege to fight for the things we believe in, this is a special thing and in some other countries women will never get the chance to even see or feel  their own talents.

I love what America has brought me, taught me and allowed me... but most of all I love that I have had the freedom to allow myself to work towards a better life.

I hope you enjoy these pics of Carolina Sanchez I shot for the 4th of July, a celebration of being a woman in this industry, and making almost ALL (excluding white label) of our WILDFOX clothing right here in Los Angeles!! We spend the money it takes on our California made collections and strive for the best quality, creating more and more jobs for all sorts of people right here at home... most of those people women!! Let's celebrate what it is to be a woman in America. Tomorrow take time acknowledge what we take for granted on a daily basis.
