A Studio Visit with Photographer Sarah Deragon

A few years back I was privileged to be included in an awesome women's indie business group called The Success Squad. Sarah Deragon and Lisa Anderson Shaffer (Zelma Rose) invited me to join at a time where we were all making pretty big work transitions. Honey Cooler Handmade had just started and I found myself struggling to coax a fully-formed business from a mere concept. One of my biggest challenges was staying on task when working from home, and our monthly Success Squad meetings lit the fire that got me to push through my hangups. And here I am at the Fashion Incubator - certainly a large step! Sarah now runs the immensely successful Portraits to the People - she's so in demand these days that I was beyond flattered when she asked to come by to take some shots of my new space.

Check out her beautiful work below. And be sure to check out Sarah's amazing work on her website - she's the one responsible for my kickass headshot below. Sarah's also working on an incredible passion project, The Identity Project, for which she's gained international recognition.

Fashion on the Square 2014 - Photography by Mehrban Jam

Last weekend's Fashion on the Square finale was quite an experience. I was asked to show a few pieces from my Spring/Summer 2015 collection in the black and white trend show on Sunday - I was so lucky that my collection was ready to go! Photographer Mehrban Jam was there to capture each outfit which is very fortunate - since backstage never offers that great of a view. My friend John James provided floral headpieces for my outfits, keeping with the aesthetic from my lookbook shoot.

Fashion Incubator alumni Jake Wall of The Artful Gentleman was honored with the Heart Award for community giving and showed his incredible collection. I was privileged to have my Spring/Summer 2015 bralettes in a few of The Artful Gentleman's outfits, proof that lingerie-as-outerwear is style with staying power.
