Bat Guana & Fashion Do Mix

by 1 June 26, 2010 1 Comment

Alan Lidji over at 'Now This' had this to say about our last photo shoot:

My rule of thumb is, give me beautiful women, great clothes and a great photographer and we can shoot it in the city dump and it will look great. In this case, we shot in a 100 year-old bat infested abandoned opera house in Yoakum, Texas. My rule holds. Alan Foreman was the photographer and did a great job under miserable conditions.

I think Alan is a wise man.

What do you think?
. . We shot the fall collection in Yoakum in one of our old warehouses where we store fabric and props.  This particular location was once a meat market, opera house, and local bordello.   Now it is a home to a bat colony - thus the masks! .

That is a true "Fashion"statement !!!! We all have seen or heard of photographers having success and some have made history with photos taken @ random places. It’s kinda like the saying “It’s not what you know! It’s who you know!” Well in this situation its goes like this “It’s not the location that makes the models” " It’s the models that make the location" Job well done ! Can’t wait to see what the Spring blooms.

You don’t really need an excuse to shake up a cocktail, but St. Patrick’s Day sure does provide cover for having one earlier in the day! We don’t want to completely destroy our Weight Watcher points, so we scoured the net to find some tasty green libations that you won’t feel guilty about (even if you have three).
