I've always enjoyed the beauty and elegance of the Renaissance era. I wanted the ambience to feel worn, yet decadent. It was important for me to have over-the-top hair and style that was reflective of this period, but still have it beautiful and wearable. The name of my collection is Slutty Bride. I wanted the viewer to feel the strength and raw emotion of the images. The "Slutty Bride" commands your attention and pulls you in.
My biggest challenge was the look created on my Asian model, Min Lee. The hair that I incorporated into hers was 28 inches long! I colored the hair three shades to create a faded look. It was no easy task to get the hair moving upward either. The end result looks soft and effortless, but this wasn’t the case.
