This past weekend I had the privilege of working with and styling a shoot for designer, Michelle Hebert from Los Angles, California. Her designs are elegant and timeless, Hebert intertwines art and fashion that creates captivating designs for sophisticated women. At a very young age she pursued art, and within this pursuit she found her love for apparel design seeing people opposed to paper as a canvas. One thing she has never forgotten since her childhood was a statement by her father Achille C. Hébert II, “never give up your art”. By listening to his advice, Hebert’s designs to date have been worn by several entertainers such as Kelli Berglund of Disney Channel’s Lab Rats, Tracy Hutson from Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, and the 19th cycle winner of Americas Next Top Model Laura James. They have also walked down the red carpet at award ceremonies such as the 55th Annual Grammy Awards and the 2013 BET Awards. Within these next few months keep your eyes open for new work, new trials, new triumphs, and most excitingly an unreleased campaign. Below is a picture of Michelle Hebert at one of her shoots wearing a piece she designed and looking stunning and elegant as ever!
Hebert’s designs inspired me to style a bright colorful landscape on a tropical island. It took a couple weeks for me to find the perfect place to shoot these looks but after various trips around Arizona I found just the place! I collaborated with makeup artist Janae Shields, my amazing husband Mat Tondreau as my photographer and the beautiful and talented Kimberly Lopez as my model. Below are Michelle Hebert’s designs with a tropical twist. Enjoy!
