SM52-APR-MAY-14-BELLE-SKETCH

 

This is a sketch I did for the opener of Siempre Mujer’s Feb/Mar 14, Best Beauty Buys, written by Jess Torres. In this story we featured products that were “reader picked”. Thus, the concept of the prize crane picking the best beauty products out of the pile. Our creative director, Stacy Marchelos placed the sketch into the layout, which I then showed to our photographer, the ever talented, Jeff Harris and our prop stylist, Wendy Schelah.

Here’s the prop she made based on my sketch.

And here’s the story. Much thanks to Jeff, who really breaths life into these idea’s, Stacy’s bold design and of course Wendy who translated my sketch into a real object. I’m in awe of you all.

JAN14_FASHN_STORYBOARD

Here’s a story board I created for Siempre Mujer’s Dec/Jan 2014 Fashion Feature. The back drops are cell phone shots I took while scouting with photographer Tom Corbett, who eventually shot the story. The inspiration for the feature was Cinderella, a concept that our then fashion editor, Haymme Marin dreamed up, right before moving on from Siempre Mujer. When Tom and I were scouting we instantly knew that we wanted to inject this story with as much drama as humanely possible to show off the dresses. So, we decided to create a dark and moody setting using a smoke machine and a cathedral lighting. As always, we needed to find the right model to fit the role of our “Cinderella”. While casting, I tried to find a model who looked somewhat innocent, but who could also evoke a level of edge and sophistication. Here’s who we decided on.

Equally as important, we had to find a stylist who could pull the dramatic dresses that we needed for the story. We decided to go with Cannon from Judy Casey and he DID NOT disappoint. Hair was done by George Ortiz with Contact NYC and Make up was done by Javier Romero. Manicure by Titilayo Bankole with BA-Reps. With the team assembled, we got busy..

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.

Better late than never! This was Siempre Mujer’s June/July 13 cover, featuring Chiqui Delgado! Shot by the amazing Omar Cruz, styled by Deborah Ferguson with hair and make up by Millie Morales.

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.
