Galliano: Fur, Feathers, and Oversized Bows

John Galliano is known to push the fashion envelope and boy did he! The s/s 2010 runway show at Paris Fashion Week was very, well, Galliano. Large GaGa-like bows, with fur covered vest, skirts, and jackets dominated the runway. The over-embellished-everything, was just what we expected from Galliano and simply fabulous!

Behind the Scenes: Maniac Magazine (US)

I had an amazing day yesterday shooting with LA-based fashion photographer, Melissa Rodwell. The Serbian goddess of a model (Zeljka Budimir) came straight from Milan and was insanely talented. We had the red camera on set too, which made everything even more exciting. Here are some photos from our shoot. The spice souk made for a perfect background and will be featured in Maniac magazine in the states.
