2015 marked the start of a series of new working relationships for me, including the introduction to Fashion Odds writer and stylist Parker XL. After a brief introduction on a prior fashion shoot, I was delighted to have the opportunity to work with him again - this time shooting an editorial for Fashion Odds magazine with an article centered on men's fashion and urban style, as well as artists who represent Twin Cities arts culture.
Combining the stellar designs of Blagk Customs with contributions from Macy's and the grace of several creative artists, the end result was a fantastic day strolling the streets of St. Paul soaking up the beautiful cobalt blue pieces against the crisp winter air. I was delighted to have my world expanded to know these exceptional artists and see what amazing talents we have within our vibrant metropolis. (And, being published again certainly didn't hurt!)
PS. If you haven't checked out Blagk Customs, do it. Do it now! Seriously killer destructive pieces that are evocative, interesting and unique. (www.facebook.com/BLAGKCustoms)
Thank you to this exceptional team for all that you brought to the table!
