Ella Gomez approached me with a concept I could not refuse. You see Ella is Peruvian and she saw my pictures from our trip to Peru. She saw how intrigued I was with the culture as a whole.
She proposed a Peruvian inspired Fashion Shoot that highlights some of the colors (think bright) of the region. I started to go through the frames we shot and it made me yearn for another trip to Peru.
A friend of mine, Kelsey O’Connor, is working on (among numerous other things) opening a vintage boutique in the West Loop of Chicago. DeCollage (http://www.shopdecollage.com) is billed as a vintage and designer couture resale clothing boutique.
We collaborated on this project which was completely styled by the amazingly talented Kelsey. (More Pictures to come)
Hair + Make-up by: Analise Ojeda and Angel Romero. Enjoy~
Kelsey, and her husband David, are an undoubtedly talented duo. DeCollage (1219 West Madison in the West Loop of Chicago) is sure to become a vintage fashion lover’s ‘must-stop’ destination.
