On Saturday, I had the pleasure of shooting with a model I’ve wanted to work with for months -the striking Taylor Hannum. Taylor and I had been trying to book something for a few weeks, but our schedules weren’t matching up. After changing my plans for NYFW, I messaged Taylor on a whim to see if she was available to shoot this week in Miami. The stars were aligned and Taylor was totes free on Saturday before jetting off to Sweden for work on Monday.
I immediately contacted my go-to Miami designers at ALEXIS. Throughout the summer I had seen little snippets of the fall collection while visiting the warehouse in Coral Gables, and have been patiently waiting for it to become available. The brands F/W 2012 look book is a regular on my coffee table and I’ve been studying the garments for months. To say that I am seriously feeling this collection is an understatement.
Sub-consciously, I’ve been playing dress up with Taylor in fall ALEXIS for a few weeks. As soon as I had both Taylor on board for a Capture Fashion production and new fall ALEXIS in my closet, I was really excited. David and I location scouted this MotoCross track back in early August, so we really had a good idea of the series’ story. The ALEXIS leather pieces together with a dirt track seemed like the most perfect gift from the styling gods.
We hooked up with two riders through my friend Nigel Bailey, who were game to be our MX models. Finding out they were twins was a serious bonus. So editorial.
For beauty, I knew I wanted a dark blue lip. Brush master, Vee Marie, suggested doing a blue brow too and super sleek hair which was flawless. I had an incredible morning on set and truly enjoyed working with this talented team.
THANKYOU to everyone involved. Enjoy. x
