Apologies for the delay in my latest blog entry. My goal is to post once a week, but it has been hectic lately -- in a good way. On Monday, March 22nd, I had the chance to shoot the 2011 fashion line for international fashion designer Ximena Valero.
Ximena's collections have been presented in Tokyo, New York, Paraguay, Los Angeles, Miami, Mexico and the Carribean. Ximena has been profiled in Harper's Bazarr, InStyle, 944, Glamour, Xfacro, Seventeen, Teen People and Fashion TV and has dressed celebrities like Alicia Keyes and Jessica Alba. In LA her clothing can be purchased at Fred Segal's in Santa Monica as well as several other boutiques.
Ximena's signature is her clothing's versatility and creativity. With a few simple alterations each design can be transformed into a unique look with its own flare and style. The videos that I shot of her 2011 fall fashion line show the different possibilities available to her customers.
On Sunday, March 28th, I shot and directed a music video for Long Beach hiphop artist Rosevelt featuring LA's Tommy Gunn. The song is called "Almost Famous," and it's off the hook, so keep your eyes and ears peeled for its world premiere. The shoot lasted all day and had us on location in Long Beach by the LA River as well as in downtown LA near the Staples Center. We still have another half day of filming to do, but I've already started editing, and it's looking dope so far.
