New York Fashion Week SS 2015....Valery

Russian model Valery Kaufman, after Tommy Hilfiger, NYC, September 2014. 

I loved the make-up at Tommy Hilfiger but only managed to find/photograph one model after the show! I was going back and forth across the street and not achieving very much at all - I felt like I did a lot of that in New York!

New York Fashion Week SS 2014....Claire

Gorgeous writer Claire Beermann from C'est Clairette, before Alexander Wang, NYC, September 2014.

We were all a little obsessed with photographing Claire in NYC :)  Her outfit makes me sad that summer is over for this year.

New York Fashion Week SS 2015....After The Row

After The Row, NYC, September 2014.

Gorgeous ruffle detailing on her pants (they remind me of these trousers worn by Samantha Traina) and beautifully styled with the plaid shirt and sweet Tabitha Simmons flats.

Recreate her look (kind of):

New York Fashion Week SS 2015....Caroline

Caroline de Maigret, Lincoln Centre, NYC, September 2014.

Caroline has such great (individual) style and the flash of colour across her sweater, accented by her cobalt blue clutch is just so nice. An outfit most girls would feel comfortable wearing in "real life" (as opposed to just "fashion week life!").

Recreate Caroline's look (kind of):

Current/Elliott + Charlotte Gainsbourg Blocked sweater, Rag & Bone Marissa top, Cedric Charlier contrast knit sweater, Vince colorblock sweater, or Chalayan turtleneck sweater

Claudia @ Union Models

British model Claudia Gould @ Union Models, 14 August 2014, London.

One frame from a test shoot with Claudia back in August with gorgeous styling by Navaz Batliwalla (Disney Roller Girl) and beautiful make-up (as always) by Jessica Mejia.

I have been wanting to shoot with Navaz for ages and finally we managed to co-ordinate and do it! 

I will blog the rest of the shoot when I finish fashion month and have a little more time to sort through the images :) I think Navaz is posting the photographs over the next week or so, so head on over to Disney Roller Girl for a preview.
