WORK // Creative Direction for DAAP NEXT Fashion Book

Here I go, making magazines again. Anybody notice a trend? I love working on projects that simultaneously use all of my strengths: creative direction, fashion, project management, and shoot production.

Work // Libby Lookbook

A few work projects have come to fruition lately, including the Libby Lookbook, photographed by Claudia Hershner, produced and styled by me, and starring some of my favorite local bloggers. One warm summer day, we all headed to Findlay Market and enjoyed a little fun in the sun–in front of the camera, of course.
