Last month, I was fortunate enough to participate in a fashion editorial photo shoot for GEV Magazine, a quarterly lifestyle magazine focused on food and fashion -- two of my faves! The issue was just published last week, and it is very exciting to see some of my designs. Thank you to the GEV team, especially Vincent Gotti Photography, Onset with Josette and Mayra Christina Swatt for including my designs and working so hard to create such beautiful images.
Stunning Mayra Christina Swatt modeled my Leather-Trim Swing Coat (left) and Flounce Cape (right), both available as made-to-measure designs. In addition to showing off my designs beautifully, Mayra is a perfectly petite model at 5'4" in height.
The photo shoot location was the Swatt House in Lafayette, CA, an iconic, architect-designed home that also serves as the family's residence.

This editorial shoot highlighed the theme of "Chroma" -- purity of color -- a new makeup trend for the season. Josette selected three main color themes, beige, aubergine and auburn, and played with shades within each theme to create monochromatic looks that tied together eyes, cheeks and lips.
