It's a very surreal feeling to watch your work come to life. I have spent so long working on the patterns and sewing away on these capes, and now to see them in photos AND on a stunning human is incredible. My friend Ashtin photographed the whole shoot and really helped me get my brain on track.
It was actually hard to articulate what I wanted and what I was envisioning. I felt though my creative brain was spent. Luckily, Ashtin is super and after seeing my capes she pulled a few perfect images for some inspiration. It was a resounding "yes" on my end.
We decided on something minimal, but not severe. I wanted our model's hilarious personality to shine through. EMLEE is for real women so we talked about keeping things clean, simple, and easy.
