Here’s the latest fashion feature from Siempre Mujer’s Aug/Sept 2013 issue. It was shot by Tom Corbett and styled by Ellen Silverstein. This shoot was very special for both Tom and I, so we both worked extra hard to insure a successful production. Including meeting weeks before hand to explore every nook and cranny of our location, which was pretty vast to say the least.  It was during this time that we really formulated the look, feel and pace of the story. For me, it was the first fashion shoot that I ever worked on without a fashion editor, so I had the opportunity to work directly with our wardrobe stylist, Ellen to make the final edit of the clothing that would eventually make it into the feature, which really aided in the narrative that Tom and I wanted to create. In my opinion the shoot was very successful. Tom created a moody, edgy and exciting atmosphere that highlighted the military trend in an explosive way, no pun intended! In the end Stacy Marchelos, Siempre Mujer’s creative director took the story to the next level with a beautiful type treatment for the head line. Our Editor-in-Chief, Cristy Marrero, who thought up the headline “Táctica y Estrategia”, had this to say:

“Táctica y estrategia (Tactic and Strategy) is the name of my all-time-favorite poem written by Uruguayan Mario Benedetti. When I saw the amazing images my art and fashion team shot, and only after recovering from a mind-blowing kind of moment, the verses on this beautiful masterpiece immediately came to me. Being this a military trend inspired story, it just felt like a match made in heaven. Because there is also poetry in fashion…” Cristy Marrero, Editor-in-Chief Siempre Mujer Magazine.

When ever I see this shot, I’m reminded of a seriously funny moment at this shoot. When I was trying to describe the pose I wanted Chiqui to take, I proceeded to lay down on top of this table and take “pin-up girl” sexy poses to explain what I wanted from the shot. My creative director damn near lost her mind when I started playing with my long, luxurious imaginary hair, while Chiqui looked at me wide eyed and shocked. However, she understood what I wanted and got it done. I think the whole episode got a smirk out of Mr. Omar Cruz.
