I am so very excited to debut my new promo video highlighting my passion as a personal stylist. Over the past year my amazing husband has been shooting my fashion shows, client consults, behind the scenes events and so much more, just to create the perfect highlight video on what I do and how thankful I am to do what I LOVE!

Special Thanks to all of my beautiful models: Kimberly Lopez, Whitney Nelson, Genevieve Tuenge and Kelsey Hanes! I also want to give a “SHOUT OUT” and thank you to all of the talented people I have worked with along the way (that were highlighted in this video): Designers: Envy By Khanh, Michelle Hebert and Ja’ire International Couture, Phoenix Glam Squad for all of the amazing collaborations together (make-up and hair), Morgan McLane Photography and Lemon Heart Photography <3 I hope all of you enjoy this glimpse into the world that I love.  Fashion. Inspiration. Lifestyle

Style On Ladies and Gents

Envy By Khanh’s Spring 2014 collection is sexy, bold and a true statement piece. Each and every one of his pieces in his collection are so very unique and colorful and are sure to standout on any runway.

I was the stylist for his show and had a blast backstage with lots of laughs, jokes and running around all over the Venue of Scottsdale. I thought it would be fun to do a “behind the scenes,” blog post opposed to just posting the runway pictures. The amazing Morgan McLane Photography took all of the backstage photos to give you a look at what “REALLY” goes on behind the scenes and she did a perfect job capturing all of the funny moments backstage.

Fittings, hair styles, make up and jewelry all go into play backstage while pulling looks for each model. All of the jewelry on the runway this year was from Hearts that is based here in Arizona. Hearts products are a synergy between artisan strengths and the natural materials the environment provides, along with the love and collaboration of their amazing design and style team. Each design is unique and exclusive to Hearts and looked absolutley fabulous on the runway. All runway photos of the models are provided by the talented DesertRose Images.

Simplicity and elegance define his brand and his looks are both sexy and sophisticated. I had the privilege of working with the talented Khanh Nguyen, owner and designer of, “Envy By Khanh.” From a young age, Khanh’s interests and skills prepared him to become a global fashion designer.

EnvybyKhanh

His passion for fashion, paired with a finesse for drawing and sketching, led him to aspirations of becoming a designer that could inspire future generations. Khanh is inspired by designers such as Christian Dior, Alexander McQueen and Vera Wang. Bold Lines, bold colors and bold geometric shapes make Envy By Khanh immediately recognizable.

Sketch 2

His looks are typically seen on the runway; so I thought it would be fun to shoot his looks on “real women,” in Arizona. I had the pleasure of working with photographer Jolene Eder with Lemon Heart Photography and make up artist/ stylist Janae Shields (that is a part of my style team). Also special thanks to Jenna Michelle for her hair styling touch! (Below is a shot of the amazing team the day of the shoot!

My vision for this shoot was fun and flirty but at the same time can be transitioned for day or night with just a simple jacket or boyfriend blazer as a layering piece. Every piece from Khanh’s collection has amazing color-blocking and shaping. It makes any and every woman feel beautiful and sexy the moment they slip one of his dresses on. Below are various dresses from his collection that were my favorites! Please make sure to also check out his video below!

I love how just adding a jacket can change the whole look of the dress.
