Lights, Camera, Pose

Today I filmed two segments! One was for Diner en Blanc and the other was a fall fashion trends story. Both are being edited, but for now here are a couple teaser images!

My friend Gina Gannon asked me where people can buy white clothing, what styles I will be looking for during the dinner (I’m one of the judges for Most Elegant Male), and where guests can look for inspiration.

For the second segment I modeled two outfits that can easily transition from summer to fall. I’ll be posting more once the segment is edited!

Have you ever worn an all white outfit? What do you think of my summer to fall look?

Staying Current with Philly Current

Yesterday I had a photo shoot for Philly Current‘s September issue! They asked me to put together a list of men’s must-have items for fall. Over the past month I collected clothing, coordinated hair/makeup, and booked a model. I am excited for the September issue to come out so you can see what items I picked! I posted a few teaser images on my social media channels. If you missed them, don’t fret! Here they are.. all in one place & with a few extra shots (I went to a look book shoot with Lobo Mau before heading to shoot the editorial with Philly Current)!

Motivational image for myself before getting out of bed

First a quick stop at Lobo Mau’s look book shoot. I tried on some rings. Would you wear any of these?

Heading back into the air conditioning.. shooting fall fashion in the summer is hot!

(literally, we were sweating)

Hope your weekend went well! I will post photos of the feature when it is published!

With fellow bloggers.. Lauren of The Style Darling and Brittiny of Fashion of Philly. Also there’s Alex (Philly PR Girl Intern)!

For the segment I wore a seersucker suit by Original Penguin, a ‘Blueberry Bowtie’ shirt by 611 Lifestyle, and a striped bow tie. All available at Metro Mens Clothing!

Video clip of the segment coming soon!

Also I spoke with one of the designers over at Indochino to hear his opinion on dressing for a derby themed event. My interview post will be going up on Racked Philly this week!

Westland: Styling my first music video

Last weekend I had the privileged to work with the band Westland on their upcoming music video. They needed a cohesive look and I was brought onto the production team as stylist. Thankfully three great companies were willing to let me use clothing for the shoot. Last week I ran around to their various showrooms to grab looks. At my stop with 611 Lifestyle I was able to get some great flannels, dyed long sleeve tees, and a few slogan tees. Metro Mens Clothing had more “preppy” looks including this great Penguin brand jacket (fourth picture seen below). RAGs & Thread provided me with a handful of super soft crew and v-neck graphic tees that the boys of Westland loved! The day of the shoot while choosing outfit options, I snapped a few shots of the guys. The lighting was off so apologies for the quality. You’ll have to wait until the video releases to see what they actually ended up wearing!
