The inspiration for this year's holiday look book came from our photographer, Julie Adams. She expressed the desire to capture some really amazing gowns. So that's what I gave her, striking silhouettes, luxurious fabrics, and high drama jewels courtesy Sassy Jones Boutique and Lex's of Carytown.
During my pull at Lex's of Carytown, I started to imagine the occasions where these wonderful gowns were being worn. While I've spent time in the racks of high-end designers during New York Fashion Week, it's not often a private client will need to go all out glam. Many of my clients come to me wanting to step up their work-from-home wardrobe or elevate their professional attire for speaking engagements, which rarely involves a sheer ball gown with an embroidered floral overlay.
As I wrapped up my gown selection and chatted with Gigi, the manager at Lex's, she informed me that in addition to prom and wedding seasons, customer's often come in for military balls and charity galas. Then, almost as soon as we wrapped our photo shoot the next day, I connected with two new clients who asked me to style them for our new Governor's Inauguration Ball. I know just the place to start shopping!
Enjoy our holiday look book and get inspired to add a few fancy occasions to your calendar for 2018.
Happy New Year!
