Stylist Diaries; Two shoots, One supermodel and a Whole Lot of Caffeine #ElizabethDeo #EugeniaKuzmina #StylistLife #SetLife #StylistDiaries

The last week have been a whirlwind. I recently got back from a relaxing and enjoyable month-long vacation in the California Redwoods.

Look, city folk this is what trees look like...

Look, city folk this is what trees look like…

Apparently it was too relaxing because the second I headed back to LA I got double booked on some amazing shoots.

The first was for a longtime acquaintance in LA who is tiny, cute and beyond fit, model and performer Elizabeth Deo. She’s not only a professional but an absolute delight. All the photos are heading straight to the sexy and scintillating ‘Manic Magazine’.

It was a crushing 102F but thankfully all Elizabeth is a complete professional and only required lingerie.

Eugenia has been a runway and print model for tons of amazing clients, such as;

Armani Jeans, Dior sunglasses, GAP, Arden B, Express, Kenzi, Replay Jeans, Sephora, and L’Oreal.[2] She has been also featured in magazines, such as Elle, Harper’s  Bazaar, Marie Claire, Japanese and Russian Vogue, GQ, Self, Shape, As well as catalogs for Hermès and Cartier.

In her early 20’s she transitioned into acting and has most recently been in ‘Fury’ with Brad Pitt.

It’s not hard to see why I love this woman, She’s tall, gorgeous, leggy, talented and, a supermom. Her most recent photography project is creating a coffee table book I have been lucky enough to work on with her as a Art Director and Key Stylist. It’s all about being a supermodel/supermom.

We had an amazing shoot day and got the kids wired on sugar. A perfect combo for amazing shots.Here are some of the behind the scenes photos

Joan Rivers Leaves Us Laughing at 81 #NotSoQueenofMean #RIP #SoSad

Growing up Joan Rivers was always there. On TV as a comedienne, on The Muppets with Miss Piggy and fighting the good fight with the Fashion Police. Never once did she not appreciate the funny things and people in life. Always stellar, a star and an inspiration Joan Rivers is indeed, the definition of Comedy itself.

Sadly today we lost Joan Rivers at 81. Surrounded by friends and family she left us. Melissa Rivers her daughter released this statement;

“It is with great sadness that I announce the death of my mother, Joan Rivers. She passed peacefully at 1:17pm surrounded by family and close friends. My son and I would like to thank the doctors, nurses, and staff of Mount Sinai Hospital for the amazing care they provided for my mother.

Cooper and I have found ourselves humbled by the outpouring of love, support, and prayers we have received from around the world. They have been heard and appreciated.

My mother’s greatest joy in life was to make people laugh. Although that is difficult to do right now, I know her final wish would be that we return to laughing soon.” –Melissa Rivers

We will truly miss you Joan. You were, and always will be an inspiration.

Things we love to support! Survivor Campaign by @LisaReillyPhotography on #IndieGoGo #CancerSurvivors #Bills #Help #Charity

Giving to the people, from the people rarely exists these days. Half the charities out there are a tax shelter and the other one’s don’t get any love unless helmed by a celebrity.

But wait! There is hope.

There are those of us on this planet who live with our heart on our sleeve and actually acknowledge human suffering on this planet just….to help. We’re talking about the small donations and ‘random acts of kindness’, YOU bring into this world.

That is why I stood up and became part of Lisa Reilly Photography’s AMAZING Survivor Campaign.

Lisa, who I met at LAFW had originally approached me with this campaign asking me if I would be willing to help raise funds and awareness for Cancer Survivors and their families, who are unable to pay for treatment or are left with hundreds of thousands of bills.

Check out Lisa’s IndieGoGo video for The Survivor Campaign!

I was happy to help. I also joined this campaign, being a Cancer survivor myself.

In 2013, I went for a routine check up and found out I had cervical cancer. I had to have surgery, which saved my life but left me with permanent complications and painful memories. However, they managed to cut the cells out of my body before they did major harm. I was a lucky one.

As I worked on this campaign other began to help as well. Tracie May-Wagner, CEO of May-Wagner PR contacted me. She wanted to help. She brought her client, the amazing Victor Wilde of The Bohemian Society on board. He in turn donated two pieces of his SS 2014 collection. Proving to me that there is ALWAYS support.

(Faith, Humanity, Restored)

No one should have to stand alone in their battle against cancer. Emotional or physical.

Shooting with Lisa underwater was extraordinary. It took everything I was doing this for and changed it.Not only was I helping others who have been through and going through pain, but I created something positive out of my Cancer experience. I never thought I could look back at this as more than a charitable session but it really changed how I look back at having had Cancer and is giving me a chance to empower others that have had it.

The women pictured in Lisa’s campaign have all fought and lived with Cancer. The women above have Stage 4 Aggressive cancer, survived a double mastectomy and cervical cancer. Going through chemotherapy and severe treatments that have costed them time, sanity, health and a small fortune.

Donating to this campaign will help them continue their fight. We’re taking donations as low as $10 to help raise funds and have packages up to $5,000 for every size and income. Please help us reach our goal so Cancer victims stand a fighting chance.

The Bare Truth with ‘The Bohemian Society’s’ Victor Wilde #FashionHouse #Couture #Art #LALife (@BohemianSociety)

maxine 1

LA at a glance seems vapid at best. Movie stars with purse dogs, overly blond athletic men and women, juice bars and cleanses, power luncheons and a cadre of meandering, very lost tourists. One would never think that there is a massive and newly booming fashion industry and art collective in the land of twinkling stars and tinsel.

With the established Style Fashion week twice a year, the celebrity clientele, the art/runway shows, and Santee fashion district in DTLA, it’s beyond booming, it’s a massive industry on the West Coast demanding attention. Showcasing names like Rodarte, Band of Outsiders, Betsey Johnson, Rebecca Minkoff LA, and James Perse has brought an influx of ex-NY artists and designers to the palm dotted coast.

Being a stylist and writer leads you unbelievable places and doing surreal things. One of these was to the heart of Bohemian Society’s headquarters, and Victor Wilde’s kitchen. I had spoken with his amazing PR people on the phone, and they agreed to do a clothing pull for a charity shoot I was working on. Then they suggested I interview Victor Wilde, the creative director and designer of The Bohemian Society, while I was there.

Never look a gift horse in the mouth, instead run with it.

vix bio pic

Victor Wilde is the head fashion designer of The Bohemian Society. The Bohemian Society in the last 10 years, boasts a celebrity clientele, dressing supermodels and musicians and is distributed in several high-end Los Angeles boutiques, and worldwide through ASOS.

In his downtown LA loft, you can see his influences. Modern art, recycled and eco sustainable materials, with a heavy Japanese influence. When I asked about it, he admitted he’d, “been to Japan 7 times.” Being a traveler was the key to bonding with Victor. We talked about travel, the international influences on design, and I asked about his background fashion.

Victor Wilde grew up in a fast paced NYC in Brooklyn. “Growing up East Coast you have to be cool.” In Brooklyn that is no small feat. “Kids judge you by what you wear, how you look”, he said, and you have to ‘grow some balls’ quickly. Victor had a better eye than most at a young age for fashion, and in Jr. High School he was voted best dressed. Not bad for a young man barely emerging from his adolescence.

Being young and fashionable was not the only reason Victor progressed in his field. “People said I should to be in fashion. I started dating a model; she was working for one of the biggest wholesale/retailers at the time. People would come in to the store, and she would buy their clothes and sell them, and I thought, I can do better than that. I thought of The Bohemian Society.”

Unlike most designers Victor had no fashion or design background. He admitted, “I didn’t know what the hell I was doing. I started creating t-shirts, and within two weeks, she was showing my clothes in the window.”

 

Yet, Victor Wilde is an artist and his true love is artistic performance. I asked about the part of fashion he loved most and what he was moving towards. ‘(I love) the showiness, and the performance part of it.” His latest projects include working with the insanely talented Swedish film maker Jonas Akerlund, and albino supermodel Shaun Ross (Lana Del Rey’s ‘Tropico’, Katy Perry’s ET), on the ‘Beauty Defined’ project.

In Akerlund’s last installment, the video explains how unique difference is always right, and others degrading natural and odd beauty were wrong. Supermodel Shaun Ross narrative is about his beauty while visually Ross parades through a throng of tourists on Hollywood blvd., in Bohemian Society couture.

This is a theme in Victor’s continuing vision for The Bohemian Society as well. With the fashion industry being a multimedia animal, this creates the perfect platform for Victor Wilde to create and produce his art. A vision of showing & creating, raw beauty.

“My next collection will be highly based on interviews with people without any clothes. I paused, ”That’s actually really brilliant. I mean if you are going to get the bare truth…”.

Part of that is Victor’s choice to use and re-use eco-sustainable good’s. I noticed that the loft is decorated with vintage pieces of clothing, art and random finds. His Spring/Summer 2014 collection was made primarily out of the most amazing, ethereal looking WWII parachute material. How did it start and why use it?

“The recycled stuff I couldn’t afford stuff so my girlfriend and I would go out and steal vintage clothing and remake it”. I went to college in North Carolina and then moved to NY and became and performance artist. He explained he used what he had around him in art and design.

I asked if being eco-friendly was an important ‘part of his personality’. “Yes, it reflects part of who I am. I’ve been a vegetarian my whole life by choice. As child I refused to eat meat. My Mom actually used to chase me around the kitchen with chicken and beef”. Being an ex-East Coaster myself, there was much discussion about the horrors of East Coast unhealthy living.

As we speak more, he admits his most recent project was costuming an opera. Not the traditional kind of course, but a rock opera. “I was there for about a week. It played at a festival so it played only one day. “Really?”, I ask, “Yes, it was in Miami, but next year it’s in Brooklyn.”

His current collection for The Bohemian Society’s Fall/Winter collection 2014? “It’s named Wild at Heart. It’s Victor Wilde. A reflection of me, influenced by the Movie (“Wild at Heart” by David Lynch) and it’s sexy, and androgynous. “

Androgyny brings to mind Bowie immediately and we talk over coffee about that, music, Tim Curry and more art.  As far as I can tell, Victor Wilde is an artist, a designer, a costumer, a performer and a multimedia mad genius.

When I asked what he wanted to work on, “Anything that interests me”.

It seems with all of his interests, world domination may not be out of the picture.
