The 2013 Fall Collection

Posted on October 01 2013

I met photographer Shayna Fontana at one of my trunk shows early last year. We clicked. Being an artist and designer for 30 years has exposed me to lots of creative people. Some talk a big game and don’t deliver, but a select number are actually the real deal. They’re visionary, they follow through on commitments and deadlines, and do fantastic work all while being a professional. Shayna is that rare person.

In September, Shayna and stylist Carlos Alonso Parada put together a shoot for my fall jewelry collection. Carlos is also the real deal. The synergy between their talents is evident in the work. Everything looks effortless and beautiful on model Vanessa Moody, who’s hair and make-up were done by Kate YanceyShayna’s laid back style of shooting with natural light, using my house and garden as the setting, was spontaneous and unlabored. Of course what jewelry designer doesn't get thrilled when they see their jewelry worn with Comme de Garçon clothing?
