Little White House

I have always admired architecture and what beautiful architecture can do for a community.  I considered going to school to be an architect, imagine that?! I have been inspired by architecture from my first trip to Barcelona.  Antoni Gaudí's work has forever made an impression on me and I will always be inspired by his livable art.  It is one thing to create art and another to live in art, this is a reason I love fashion.  
Taking inspiration from this house I have created looks to match the architecture and feel of the house.

Jewelry from New Orleans Trip

I was able to take a trip to New Orleans earlier this summer. One of the things I know I had to get were the skull head beads from the voodoo following.  As it was described to me, the skull heads keep away evil spirits.  I am very intrigued by the practice of voodoo and other religions.
I went to a store called the Artist's Market and Bead Shop by the French Market.

I got the skull head beads and the cross beads from the shop in New Orleans. The other beads came from Jo-anns.I was able to get other beads from the shop.  Down below.

Lately I have been more focused on using the beads I have collected over the years.

These beads were made by my mother with clay.

I love to wear these layered.  So, there it is.

Enjoying the Summer

Advertisement for Dolce & Gabbana

As part of a school project, I selected Dolce & Gabbana to be my client.  I present to my favorite piece of work from this long journey to create a campaign the perfectly suits Dolce & Gabbana and the direction I see it moving in the future (just a prediction).

A woman stands on the edge of a cliff off the Mediterranean Sea.                                

The camera will follow the woman.  When the diver has feet down towards the water.  The previous Dolce & Gabbana dress will fly off to show a dress from the new season that is being advertised. 
          As the women jumps the screen will turn black and white. 

          The camera will continue to follow the women falls into the water, feet first then back to create           ripples in the clear blue water.  The camera will follow the women up to the surface of the                   water. The women’s eyes will reach the surface, at that point the hue will change to red. 
          As the hue changes red, the sun sets behind the woman.

As a voice over:

       We are not here long.
Do not waste it being safe.
Dolce & Gabanna’s new Spring 2016 line is now available.
