As my own spring photo shoot for Wiksten swiftly approaches, I'm finding myself so inspired by these images from Erica Tanov's Spring 2010 collection. Casual, effortless, and perfectly evocative of spring. Isn't the blue and white dress just lovely? And the model's short haircut and colorful socks are particularly charming. The whole thing seems real--not overly produced, but just a girl enjoying a lazy spring afternoon. I like it.
Lately I've been busy preparing for my first full collection in over a year. The transitions and ups and downs of the past year have prevented me from getting one together, and I've really missed one of my favorite things--collaborating with a team on a photo shoot. Creating a visual story with a group of people working together can be a very satisfying thing. I'm really looking forward to it (two weeks from now), and I'm kinda nervous too.
