alia raza x tavi gevinson x duskin

leave a comment »

i finally got a chance to work with my oldest friend, alia raza, on one of of her newest videos. we’ve known each other since we were 5- we met in kindergarten, shared a cubby; she used to draw me pictures of boom boxes. now she makes videos and other cool things- and there is no doubt she has a lot of other great things to come.

over the years between us, there’s been a lot of talk about collaborations, but for whatever reasons, they’ve never worked out. until last month- when she emailed to ask if i would contribute some custom duskin pieces for a project she was shooting later that week with tavi gevinson – style rookie, i obviously jumped at the chance. alia. tavi. seriously?

all i can share right now is that tavi was such a pleasure to meet- completely poised, professional, and extremely well-spoken. naturally stunning. her mother was really sweet as well- so supportive and open. the whole team was really small, and everyone worked so well together.
i think we were all wowed by what we saw because, visually, everything came out just as we’d wanted, if not better.

the following image is a shot of the monitor while alia was setting up the scene with tavi. check back for updates and more images (or email me if you want any more info- i will share whatever i know and can)- it will be a while before any of us can see the final product, but i am so proud to have been a part of this inspiring project…

sorry for the lack of updates- it’s been a very busy few weeks! went to miami for a few days (more on that later) before heading on a 2 week trip to vietnam and thailand. i can’t complain- i’ve had two and a half weeks of sun, but i came back to non-stop rain in new york…and now i’ve got the blues.

catching up on work and life, so for now, here is a shoot from black book magazine, with the duskin floral printed dress from spring 10, styled by laurie trott (!) and photographed by viki forshee.
