Fashion Photography Spotlight: David LaChapelle


David LaChapelle is an American photographer known for his references to art history with a modern spin. Although he is well-known in the commercial world and has taken some of the most iconic celebrity photos, as of 2006 he stepped away from the commercial world and began the journey back to his fine art roots. Some of his most popular pieces feature Amanda Lepore, a regular at M&J Trimming!





Floral Editorial Inspiration


Flowers come in many shapes and sizes. Even though everyone has a flower preference, most would agree on their beauty. When creating an  arrangement you are greeted with something unexpected; a sophisticated rose may look great next to a playful sunflower or an adorable daffodil. Likewise these odd pairings work well in fashion. Often taking a risk and combining two unique prints will create something better than you had anticipated. The following floral editorials prove that floral prints are no longer restricted to feminine detailing.


Emerald Editorial Inspiration


Green is the new black.
Emerald has been the focus of many editorial spreads. The color has been used in a vibrant way portraying varied emotions. Avant Garde photographer Miles Aldridge uses the color in an outlandish way while J.Crew embraces the warmth the color brings.
