With my internship heating up, starting a new job on 5th ave, and stirring up some thing with my clothing business; I have to learn even more on dressmaking, darts, and the details of the design of a dress.

Another awesome photo shoot! We had this done a week ago and most of the pictures came out great, including the one below; where you can see close ups of the epaulette, patch pocket, and zipper detail of the shirt. It is amazing what good lighting, a good photographer, and good clothes can do together! Looking forward to many more.               Also, I worked with a great photographer on the rise too; his name is Noel Estevez.
