Oh that's Stupid, I can do this...

Hey everyone, sorry for being gone for a little over a month. It's not that I have forgotten about my precious blog, I have just been soo busy with my new collection for Fall 2012. I had stated Previously that I had been working under the name Carmelita Tropicana, but after much debate I have decided that my collection will be named RYB!!! it's simple, cold and straight to the point. I can't wait to upload my preview images sometimes next month that will give you a taste of my new work that I have been stewing for over a year now. Tata for now and next time I write I will most like be 25 lol

The Hills are Alive with The Sound of Music

Hi everyone sorry for the lack updates on post besides of photoshoots, but it's what I have been working on for the past couple of months. At the end of July I had the pleasure to work with a very talented photographer Andres Razo. We got many many very good images from 6 different looks I styled. These images I posted represent just a few of all the great images. Our location was a very beautiful hilltop on Malibu with tall grass. I was able to use Garments from designers Daisy Gonzalez, Odalis Venegas and Sanna Nilsson and jewelry was yet again provided by the lovely Ezza Exclusive

La City

Hey everyone on one of my many styling gigs recently I got the pleasure to work with Hunter, a model that has been doing it since the she was 8 years old. She was amazing to work with and the images were taken by the very talented Manny who I had previously worked with. I have included both images in black and white and in color versions to fully show the great work. The shoot took place on the streets on downtown Los Angeles and I feel are cinematic in movement.
