This season’s phenomenal nail look from longtime Blonds collaborators CND was inspired by the theme of good vs evil, and “Lucifer as a powerful woman”. Frescos, Red spikes, and studs made frequent appearances, in both the nail art and clothing.

KATIE GALLAGHER F/W 2016: BEHIND THE SCENES

KATIE GALLAGHER- FALL-WINTER 2016 - BEHIND THE SCENES 009

Today I had the pleasure of spending the afternoon shooting behind the scenes images at Katie Gallagher’s Fall/Winter 2016 collection press preview at The Roxy Hotel, in Tribeca.

Entitled “Veiled”, the monochromatic collection was influenced by Gothic architecture, stained glass, Harry Clarke illustrations, and Gallagher’s own very first collection “Veil” from Spring/Summer 2010.

I’ve photographed Katie’s shows every season for the last 6 years, and it was even more exciting to see the line than usual, and to spend multiple hours noticing the subtle details, and craftsmanship of the garments.

It’s been wonderful to see Katie grow as a designer over the years, and finally be recognized for all her hard work. I’m excited to see what the future has in store for her!

Matt Bernson Sample Sale

My favorite sample sale of the year is back! Matt Bernson holds hands down the best sample sales I’ve ever been to. $165+ sandals on sale for $40! Last Fall, there was no bi-annual sale– and I was very sad. But I just received an email announcing the spring sale!

Matt Bernson,The Greyest Ghost

I own about 9 pairs of Matt’s sandals (and one pair of gorgeous ballet flats). All were purchased over the last 2 years at his sales! You can’t beat the prices and selection. At last year’s spring sale, every style was available in multiple sizes and colors. These shoes are handmade! And ridiculously comfortable. They’re pretty much all I wear in the summer time.
