A New Class of Designers

CFDA Incubator // Behind the photo shoot from Ann Street Studio on Vimeo.

As you know, we love working with the CFDA. They work to support up-and-coming designers with the CFDA Incubator program, and this latest class of incredible designers happened to include two we’ve worked with before – the lovely Misha Nonoo and Katie Ermilio (Katie even designed my wedding dress!). So when we were asked to take the official portraits of the 2014 class of designers, we couldn’t wait. We created an entire portrait set up in our studio and the designers came in and out throughout the day (which you can see in the time lapse video above!).

It was so wonderful to meet all of you, CFDA Incubator class of 2014! Now tell us…

CFDA Awards

For the past fifty years, the Council of Fashion Designers in America has held an awards show that has come to be called the “Fashion Oscars”. “This annual event is the one night we come together to celebrate our own,” said CFDA CEO Steven Kolb. And celebrate we do…

It’s a night of glamour, talent, and beauty but most of all it is a night of recognition – giving our applause and our thanks for the gorgeous creations made by fashion designers from established to up and coming.

There were many great moments in the night – listening to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton joke around about her love of pantsuits, and then warmly describe Oscar de la Renta, winner of the night’s prestigious Founder’s Award, as a man whose “name evokes elegance and timeless beauty“. Catching my style icon, Carolina Herrera, being perfectly chic and lusting after her sensible evening shoes. Watching Vera Wang receive the Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement Award from her former mentor, Ralph Lauren, and seeing the beautiful friendship that exists between them… but don’t just take it from me, you can see all these moments and more on Style.com!

This industry is not an easy one, but it is certainly stunning. It’s wonderful to know that the hard working creatives behind these gowns I love to photograph so much and pieces we all admire are given accolades for their achievements in a glittering way only the fashion industry can do.
