I MADE THIS pt.1: LITTLE BLACK DRESS

model: JOENI POU (dna model mgmt south africa)
ph. Tarrice Love
styling: Tarrice Love

Model Joeni Pou had stopped by to visit me before heading off to Capetown, South Africa to do some work and I was inspired to create photo magic..... I did a quick sketch of a dress on an envelope on my desk. Before she arrived I was watching the Thierry Mugler Spring 2012 fashion show. The designs had these really interesting cutouts. I took a black oversized t-shirt and made an interpretation of the  Mugler look in about 15 minutes.

My grandmother was a seamstress and taught me and my little brother how to sew. I would take clothes apart and hand sew them back together. I studied and  read almost every book about fashion that  the Memphis  public library had available. When I started shooting fashion images in Memphis, Tn, their weren't any stylist and few clothing designers in the area. I took all of my knowledge and available resources and "made it work!"  

Being in NYC, stylist and designers are all over the place but my access to them is limited. I didn't want my ability to create amazing work to hinge on needing others to make it happen, so i started collecting garments from the neighborhood Goodwill and i whipped out my "good" scissors and started customizing things for my photographs. 


The best part about creating things for my photos is that they are tailored to the individual i'm shooting. One of a kind pieces for them. After the photoshoot, i usually destroy them to keep from being tempted to reuse them on someone else.

NEW FACE: FILIP HRIVNAK @ Soul Artist Mgmt.


I had an opportunity to do a portrait session with fashion's new face Filip Hrivnak. He is represented by Soul Artist Mgmt. in New York, M Mgmt. in Paris, and I Love Models Mgmt. in Milano.



Filip has walked international runways for designers like Givenchy. He appears on the cover of men's fashion magazines like Seventh Man and Vogue Hommes International cementing him as a hot model on the rise. 


With his uber cool look and his engaging personality, it's no surprise that this guy is one of the new faces to watch out for. I'm very excited about everything that is happening for Filip and look forward to seeing more great things happen...#returnofthesupermoddel

GOTTA GET ME A PAIR OF LVL XIII


Seandon Roberson was  one of the  first  models  I worked with I moved to New York. Even though he's no longer a model, he still will flex and pose for my camera. He is currently the Marketing Director for an awesome  new line of luxury footwear called LVL XIII. After seeing one pair of the shoes up-close, I asked  Seandon to bring a few  pairs  for me to photograph for this story.



LVL XIII (pronounced Level 13) is a luxury shoe brand founded by Antonio Brown—a former accountant who worked for a luxury doll manufacturer, the Alexander Doll Company. LVL XIII represents a luxury lifestyle brand that specializes in high-end shoes that utilizing top grade leathers and exotic skins.




This unique collection of footwear has caught the attention of celebrities like musicians Chris Brown and Jason DeRulo, who wore a pair on Good Morning America, rappers Nas and Jim Jones, supermodel Tyson Beckford, and athletes like New York Knicks player J.R. Smith and Kroy Biermann of the Atlanta Falcons. Actors Nick Cannon, Tracey Morgan, Jason Sudeikis, Chris Tucker and Tristan Wilds have been seen in them too.


I tried on a pair and they made me feel like i should be on stage .... like a superstar. :)
