I think many of us have found more time to slow down and reflect on our lives as the world around us has been on hold over the greater part of 2020. For years, I have had a passion and curiosity about photography, but would find distractions to keep me from the pursuit of developing my own skill. I am pleased to say that I have begun my photography journey to complement my work as a fashion designer.
I created several new looks that blend technical materials with more traditional ones, and I introduced Swarovski crystals for the first time to accent, elevate and illuminate pieces, making them even more glamorous. I enjoyed the process of photographing the looks and bringing them to life.
