pics : tusk & monique lai



Hi All -


Recently, I was fortunate to be involved in the development of a marketing campaign for accessories company Tusk. The campaign was designed to highlight the sleek silhouettes and inventive details found in Tusk's handbags and small leather goods.

We worked with the phenomenal fine art photographer
Monique Lai to create the concept for the Spring 2009 Preview collection, which transports the bags to a different era 'Somewhere In Time'. Shot on location at the glamorous Jumeirah Essex House hotel on Central Park West the campaign features gorgeous Ford Model Gracileia wearing clothes from designer Alvin Valley.

I thought Monique's photos were so beautiful, I just had to show you. See more and details in the
Lookbook.

xo, Cindy

What a serendipitous post! I had just interviewed the new designer for Alvin Valley--Shelby Scudder. Did you meet her? She's just so bubbly and fun to talk with.

P.S. I had no idea this was your work!! Cindy, how exciting! They came out so great. Shoot me an email if you get the chance. :)
