I recently had the opportunity to model for The Penny Rose's fall fashion week (see above). I'm typically behind the camera in my day job as a filmmaker, so stepping in front of the lens was exciting and nerve-wracking. Modeling is definitely more challenging than I ever realized: striking a pose that appears relaxed and evokes emotion, and learning what angles work best for the camera while showcasing the clothing and accessories to ensure they're the real star of the shot, is a lot to pull off.
Through the process I was also introduced to several fabulous brands and one in particular that I fell head over heels for: Just Female.
Launched in Copenhagen in 2007, Just Female combines impeccable design with bold prints and color palettes. Classic silhouettes and occasional masculine tailoring make a statement that's both elegant and edgy. There were a couple of standout pieces that I wore for the photo shoot (above), and would happily add to my closet. The flirty Shoppe Dress that I wore offered a dramatic, high contrast black and white pattern that's perfect for a fun night out. The Wood Kimono is a luxurious jacket available in a variety of prints. I'd love to have it in "Red" to dress up a simple outfit or mix and match with a cozy ensemble during the upcoming fall and winter months when the weather cools off.
