Deena

TransFusion Stills


Yesterday I had the pleasure of photographing and making several short films with the talented and stylish Deena Odelle Hyatt. Here are some stills of her looks; you can see the rest by attending the DCWEEK Closing Party (tickets HERE), where my short film TransFusion will be debuted (as part of the Ford Artist Grant I received), and Submerge DC, where I will share our collaborative video installation and am one of the featured artists for my still photography work as well. Be sure to register for the Submerge opening on the website above; it's free to get in, but you do have to register. 

Happy Monday, all! 





And what am I wearing for all of this artistic galavanting? Why, layered vintage graphic prints, of course! A little bit tribal and a little bit down home, I can't get enough of layering these pieces as the days get cooler and I have a grower desire for coziness. 

Know Fashion: Behind the Scenes


As I mentioned, I made a short fashion film for the Know Fashion event and did a large-scale video installation (check it out HERE), so of course I had to attend in full GoKate flair. I wore a men's white button shirt as a minidress, leopard-print tights, and some killer 6" heels (seriously still feeling them!). It was a blast, but of course I couldn't resist take some snaps of the party and backstage with all the models as well. ;) Enjoy...there may even be a little video soon as well. Maybe. 

Get tons more after the jump!

So many people dress for others, or dress to impress, but Natalie just has an excellent sense of effortless style in how she carries herself.

I love Ashley's studded jacket (who, me? Loving studs? WHAT?!) ;) 


Best menswear look of the evening? Yes.





Best duo of the evening, form the print to the headwear and hair - excellent



Saved one of my favorite's for last - Stef's smile and "bows on bows on bows" for Accoutre are so much fun!
