I felt very honored to be the winner of Romio’s NYFW Fashion Blogger contest. For those who haven’t heard of the site, Romio is a New York based web start-up that connects people, businesses and organizations where they live; enabling them get more out of their neighborhoods. The reward for winning the contest was a studio phootshoot with Alain Aguilar; a veteran photographer who has worked with reknowned publications such as Latin Vogue.
I brought in my friend Faith Piccozi and styled her in a few looks as part of the shoot. She’s a really outgoing and positive person and someone who is so natural at modeling. I think her personality really comes out through the images she takes.
The Romio site is undergoing constant improvements and growth and I invite you to check them out. A very heartfelt thank you to the Alain Aguilar and Romio team for allowing me to collaborate with them. Thank you to Faith for making the clothes come to life.
Knowing Galadriel is to know that she might just meet you for coffee in ‘cat face.’ If you hang out with Galadriel and her friends contrarian behavior is to be expected and adored.
Galadriel’s introduces the M.O. of her gang of ‘untouchabelles’ on her blog.
‘We draw cat faces on our faces and laugh too loudly in libraries. We have business cards and spikes on our shoes and jackets. A good pun will make us love you forever. A cheesy come-on and you’re done.
We read, of course.
We have our own places.
We have our own projects and our own goals and our own lives.
We are not your girlfriends.’
While that short-form manifesto may seem slightly intimidating, Galadriel is anything but. Her easy-going and free-spirited demeanor is reflected in her sense of style. For this shoot I lent Galadriel a couple button-downs that she absolutely fell in love with. ”
Supreme SS11 Floral Print Liberty Shirt
I asked Galadriel to share her personal sentiments on style.
“Caring about what you wear is not a vanity thing, it’s a creative thing.”
Comme des Garcon SHIRT paneled button-down
“I don’t care to amaze people or to intimidate people. I want my outfits to endear me to people.”
