I’m happy to finally share that I (along with some other rad ladies) was interviewed for Zeum Issue 11. This stunning publication has now been released on UK stands and will be coming to Toronto, Japan and Austria very soon. If you’ve been reading this blog for a long while, than you know I have worked with Editor-in-chief and fashion photographer extraordinaire, Danielle Suzanne many times and feel so lucky to be a part of this labor of love and well-respected magazine. It still feels surreal when anyone wants to interview me or that even one person would be interested in my life, but hey, the internet is a strange place and I guess I have found my place somewhere in it. The image below was the original image Danielle took of me for the publication, however, I went and chopped my hair off and we thought it made more sense to share my updated look, so my own picture (shot by me) went to print, which also feels pretty surreal, if you ask me.
Back in May I styled a shoot with photographer & editor-in-chief of Zeum Mag, Danielle Suzanne. I am finally able to share the images with you, as it was just released in the latest issue of Miss Robin Fanzine. You may recognize the model from previous shoots I styled, but this was the first time I met/worked with Gwen (aka Gwendy Darling), although obviously, not the last. I love this girl – she is gorgeous, and silly and just an all around cool chick. As for Danielle, I feel so lucky to have been able to work with her. She is super talented (honestly, you need to check out her work), pretty damn adorable, and also, an all around rad chick. For the styling I used garments from Larkspur, as well as my own personal items and some pieces from Dolores Haze SS14, which I sort-of wish I could have taken home with me. We shot on Toronto Island, and while it may look like a warm Summer day, it really did not feel like one. Gwen was such a trooper though, traipsing around in a swimsuit and next to nothing. Anyways, enough of my blabbering, I hope you enjoy the images, I’m pretty in love with them.

Last Sunday was a fun day, indeed. I spent the afternoon on Toronto Island (Wards Island, more specifically) styling a shoot for the talented and lovely photographer, Danielle Suzanne, who is also the editor behind Zeum Mag, along with the team of Zeum gals, Megan Harper and Lauren Fairservice. Our model was the beauteous Gwen of Peggi Lepage, and she is really just a dream to style. That gal looks good in anything! If you have been following this blog for awhile then you can probably spy a multiple of garments from my personal closet, but I also brought along some stock from Larkspur, and styled some pieces from Dolores Haze SS14 collection. It was really a fanstastic day. We weren’t so sure we would ever see the sun, but she did eventually show her face, at just the right time. I’m pretty excited to see the results, and can’t wait to share them with you!
Big thanks to Danielle, Megan and Lauren for the opportunity, and for letting me do my thing. And to Gwen for being such a sport when the sun was nowhere to be found, and it was chilly as fuck!
