I'm really excited to share these photos with you tonight. They belong to a photo set I've created for my lovely friend, designer Melanie Wesley. I took 500 photos, and edited them down to the best 30. I learned a LOT from this shoot. It helps that the subject matter was so fascinating (and the model so graceful). Melanie's website and shop are currently being built, but I'll be sure to share them when they're live. She uses lush materials like crystal, recycled sari's, silk and beautiful beads. Each piece is more art than accessory or garment. It was an honor to capture some of that magic.
