Here are some lovely shots done during a test shoot by my good friends over at Iconography By Eric And Christopher. They have a lovely studio in Torrington CT, and will be shooting many things for me in the future!

So I was inspired by those washed out Marc Jacobs ads, and some other similar ones I've been seeing lately, so I decided to play around with this photo of my Silk Cowl Dress from my Glass Box collection, modeled by my lovely sister, Maria Costa.
Lately I have been realizing that I do not have nearly enough photos of my work outside of shows that they are in, and I am trying to rectify that. I am beginning by trying out different ideas and aesthetics for the photos, since different things will work for certain collections. Stay tuned for more experiments!

One of my outfits is in the Time Out NY ad for this December's Anachronism event! Most likely because it depicts a magical beast...
look at the article HERE!!
I'm not sure what my part will be in the anachronism this time around, but everyone should come and experience the event for themselves!

The moment I have been waiting for for what seems like a million years!!!!
There are certain sections of the gallery that will be getting updated, and other things will be changing regularly, depending on important news and collections, but for the most part, it is a real live site that I can call my own! Hoooorrrrraaaayyyyy! I will post about any updates that will be made to it, as well.
Now, please join me in a silly victory dance..

On Sunday I premiered my collection Glass Box, which took the form of mimes to express breaking free of invisible barriers, a mantra I hope to always live by. It took place at the Dumbo Lofts, hosted by Brooklyn Indie Market.
My models were amazing, I am convinced I have one of the best model teams ever, they are all so supportive and helpful to each other. Photos by none other than Babs Daniels herself.
Model: Maria Costa

So this last Sunday at Brooklyn Indie Market, I presented my collection Glass Box, and afterwards, my opening model, none other than the fantabulous Psyche Corporation, performed a number of her songs whilst still wearing the look from the show!
Behold the evidence, documented once again by the amazing Babs Daniels.

I premier my new collection, Glass Box, a collection about mimes and breaking through invisible restraints, at Brooklyn Indie Market. This is my fourth year doing this show with the market, and each year, it gets better. The Market opens at 10am, and the fashion show starts at 6pm, so get there early!
This year, I will have 14 or 15 models, and a fabulous vending booth right next to the main entrance staircase. I will also be creating a window display with my booth in the big window right next to the main door.
Also, for everyone who attended last year, and thought that the runway setup was not as visible as it could have been, please know that I will be building a raised runway, and press and photographer sections will be more carefully thought out, so that everyone in the audience can see.
I will be the first designer to show my work at 6pm, other designers include Alex London, and Berit NY.
I hope to see you there!

Once again I had the pleasure of dressing Psyche Corporation for her performance at Anachronism. This time, she wore a red skirt with snaps up the front from my Monstrous collection, and a corset covered in antique industrial spools.
She looked awesome as usual, and her performance was tremendously influenced by her new band members, cellist Michael Lunapiena and guitarist Paul Hoppe. Soon she will have another mysterious member of her band.. playing bass and saxaphone... I wonder who that might be..
Also, these marvelous photos were taken by the one and only Babs Daniels, a lovely creature, made of what can only be described as sunshine-joy-fun-penguins.
And here's some pictures of my masks in the dressing room. Babs is so good at taking photos of still lives!
And here's me and some friends being outward about how sleepy we were after an 8 hour long event!

So this post is long overdue. Anachronism NYC: Visit To Edo occurred at Webster Hall in August, and I had a fashion show there that was vaguely based on Kabuki and animal totems. It was a fun show, I had very expressive models helping me out, and it was the first time I have ever been onstage in pointe shoes!
There are too many photos to count, from the fantabulous Babs Daniels, so there will most likely be a few more posts on this matter.
