First Looks


Beautiful backstage photographs of a few of the first looks from the Spring 2015 Runway show from photographer Carlotta Manaigo. I love the ethereal quality her photographs capture, the love of light, the beauty of fragility.

Garry Winogrand

I recently enjoyed an inspirational outing to the Met and loved the Garry Winogrand photography exhibition, a pre-Instagram documentation of everyday life in the mid-century.  A must-see!

Lucien Clergue

I love the light and shadows, the tension and tanquility, in these high-contrast black and white photos by French photographer Lucien Clergue.

Reflections

I really love this photo series by Austrian couple Verena Michelitsch and Tobias Van Schneider—- beautiful, fragile yet strong. They compose these photographs from found plastics, foil, plexiglass. I admire their creativity and resourcefulness!

Cecil Beaton

This beautiful Cecil Beaton photograph holds an immense power for me and sparked the design of my new summer collection. I love the simplicity and pride in this young man as well as the artistry of the photo itself, and although the collection does contain some beautiful floral prints and flowing whites, it’s the beauty in Mr. Beaton’s photograph and the integrity of the young subject that I strive for when I design. I hope you enjoy.

Her Majesty

I really love this official portrait the Queen by photographer David Bailey. As the photographer says, “She has very kind eyes with a mischievous glint,’ he said. ‘I’ve always liked strong women and she is a very strong woman.’”

Bill Cunningham: Facades

Legendary New York Times photographer Bill Cunningham is showing a series of photographs documenting fashion in the city at the New York Historical Society, a must-see exhibition.  Mr. Cunningham is such a gentleman and so passionate about fashion, photography, culture, people; he is one of the original ‘street style’ photographers.  His “On The Street” feature in the Sunday New York Times is always such a joy.  (One of my favorite “New York” moments was picnicking in Battery Park with my husband in the 90’s, and being approached by this kind man asking to take our photograph, I don’t think we made the paper but it’s a photograph I wish I had today!)

Carrie Schneider: Reading Women

At the latest Armory Show in NYC I was delighted by a series of portraits by Carrie Schneider, Reading Women. From the artist:

To create Reading Women, I asked 70 female friends - mostly artists, writers and musicians - to each sit while reading a book of her choice, written by a female author, in her own home or studio for the duration of two hours using side-by-side photographic and video cameras. There is something rare about the depth of concentration experienced while reading, and it’s this moment I’m after: when the sitter loses awareness of the camera - and any semblance of a pose - forgetting her cultural performance.

Peter Lindbergh
If you’re in Los Angeles you should definitely stop by the Fahey Klein Gallery to see the Peter Lindbergh exhibition … one of my favorite photographers, his photographs of women are strong, cool, classic.
