This summer I wanted to work with some talented designers and through my Model Mayhem account 2 very busy ladies returned my queries. Maria Teresa and I met to discuss the creation I had in mind. Life sometimes gets in the way between personal stuff and your day job. But we are not giving up on each other.
Janel and I only communicated via texts & on the phone, discussing material and design. She sent me a photo of what she thought I was looking for. Yes, yes – perfect. This is a TF collaboration. I paid for the material that she fashioned into exactly what I was hoping for. She delivered the cropped top and bathing suit type bottom and the sheer shimmering flowing skirt.
But would it billow and flow the way I was hoping when underwater? My model Stacey’s first underwater shoot would be the proving ground. Stacey is an actress and she so she acted like a mermaid for me.
Gosh I love what I do.
