One of my most recent projects has been sorting through my styling portfolio, organizing the images for an agency I am newly signed to. It got me thinking - I have been truly blessed to work with some incredibly talented people throughout the years. My fashion adventures to date have included dangling models off of rooftops, a memorable (and cold) shoot at an ice carving workshop, literally tying antlers to a girl's head with her own hair, building bustiers out of plastic wrap, and much, much more. None of it would have been possible without the amazing designers, photographers, models, makeup artists, hair stylists, assistants and interns who helped make the magic happen. To acknowledge and celebrate them (and to shamelessly show off some of the work of which I am most proud), I've decided to share some of my fave shoots here on paper + cloth. Enjoy!

Shot for the September/October 2007 issue of Ambassador, Migration was inspired by one of the fall 2007 season's biggest trends (and one of my personal fashion weaknesses) - feathers! The idea with the shoot was to keep the avian influence subtle - rather than wearing feathers head to toe, our model would be dressed in shades of gray, black, white and cream with pops of color (introduced through accessories) and dashes of sparkle and feathers. To get the look, I pulled from a diverse group of designers, including Michael Kors, Monique Lhuillier, Jason Wu (way before he was a household name with a hotly anticipated collection for Target on the way), Alexander Wang (also a relative newcomer at the time), Gucci, Lela Rose and more. Check out the full shoot, with credits, below.
