This is the first set of pics from my shoot with Chelsi last night.
I am so glad I was finally able to get this dress photographed! This dress was supposed to be part of my Vitamin Water Zero collection but the zipper broke five minutes before the runway show - luckily I brought a back up dress just in case but wow! I was so disappointed when it happened that night. The dress is made of 100% silk poplin and habotai silk lining. I personally hand dyed the fabric to get this exact shade. This dress looks simple but it's actually pretty difficult to make.

Last Friday I met up at the B Ocean Hotel in Fort Lauderdale for a magazine shoot. I was moving on Saturday and Fort Lauderdale is almost 2 hours away so I was a little hectic when I woke up that morning. It really felt like I wasn't going to get everything done but in the end everything worked out - I'm so glad I did this shoot! The whole shoot was planned by MUA Paris Wimbley of Parisisfashun.com. I was incredibly excited to work on this since the photographer doing the pics was Diana Santisteban - I'd seen her work before and was just dying to work together. We shot a total of six looks and used two of my pieces for the shoot. The model Nadege is new to Miami and I'm really hoping to work with her again - she was gorgeous!
