I have always been really inspired by editorial fashion content. Since starting my blog, I have especially yearned to create this location-based fashion rich content from my own point of view, but until recently I had always felt I had to be a real “model” with a certain body type or specific look to do this. But I have been thinking a lot about the fact that fashion at the end of the day is made for real people with a variety of body types and points of view to live their lives in and express themselves with. I don’t have to be a model to create imagery that is fashion based and that can inspire others. I have always dabbled in this a but with my work events at the museum, but I have set out on this new focus slowly; starting with my last blog post where my friend Bronson and I created some amazing work at the Salk Institute. Last week I tried my second shoot with a new photographer friend JP Casiano at an East Village park that I have always found interesting.
Fault Line Park is names as such as it is built on a shallow fault line and the space is designed specifically to echo this fact. A sidewalk that cuts diagonally through it traces the line of the earthquake fault zone running below. There’s an interactive public art installation on either side of the sidewalk that monitors the earth’s movement below and emanates a singing sound from their connection to the earth’s vibrations. I have always loved when science meets art and this pair of silver orbs is both gorgeous and interesting. I chose an all-silver look to complement the art and kick-off my coat obsession for the upcoming fall season. I hope you enjoy!
