I mentioned last week that the stunning Noel has an equally gorgeous younger sister, Asia. When I happened to choose both of them for this shoot and later found out they were sisters, it was a must that we shot them together. And of course, we did!
I’m especially excited about this month’s Chi City’s Most Stylish because I recently had the pleasure of working with him on my latest project with Ford Models. He has style like no one I’ve ever seen in Chicago (or anywhere for that matter) so I knew this series wouldn’t be complete without this talented stylist.
Late last year I was approached by Ford Models to artistic direct a photoshoot, which is something I’ve always thought of doing but never had the opportunity to execute. So, basically it was kind of a big deal for me. After a few months of finalizing models, getting the perfect looks together and choosing who I’d like to work with…it’s all finally here. I really wanted this shoot to be about the models. They’re always trying to sell something, but for this purpose I wanted to see them in a setting they feel comfortable in, in clothes they love. We chose settings based off of the girl’s interests plus everything is local. I wanted the boutiques and locations involved to all be independent and/or Chicago-based. So this really IS a Chicago fashion shoot…and isn’t that what ChiCityFashion is all about?
These 5 girls are Ford’s “it” models for 2013. You heard it here first. This isn’t the last you’ll be seeing of them.
