WELCOME TO THE DECEMBER ISSUE ! WHERE WE ARE IN HOLIDAY MODE. We hope you’ve enjoyed perusing our recent editorials. I must say its always a pleasure shooting and being creative. Its sort of an outlet for me. We normally go in the direction of a gift guide, but I chose instead to do just a beautiful series of stories with beautiful images and objects to dream about. In the process of planning this shoot I perused image of Helmut Newton and loved his images of a very strong sexually liberated woman who loves fashion. Our cover star @kate_sutton12 is 6 ft tall and she has the height to represent what I call the NEWTON GIRL and the beauty and brain to match. This was her first editorial and I think we did a very good job in transforming her from young girl to super woman. Her wardrobe consists of black leather pieces with frivolous fringes, statement coats with aggressive embellishments and of course a bit of color to tone things down a bit. For this post we chose to collaborate with Blake and Neiman Marcus. This portfolio photographed by Akin Girav. Hair and Makeup by @debbie_jacks , assisted by @muadana, both at @distinctartists.
