Yesterday we photographed dozens of new looks for our label. So much work goes into planning a Shoot: model selection, defining hair and make up, selecting the photographer, hair and make-up artist, location, and organizing looks. Because we shoot in LA with the lovely and ever-so-talented Tanna Frederick, it also means starting the day on a 6 am flight. 

It is easy to imagine that there is the possibility of many details to get missed and compromise the shoot. But yesterday was an exception, it was amazingly peaceful, yet simultaneously energetic, and everything worked like a clock. First thanks go to our artists. Tanna is our onscreen model; Colin Gerse and team work magic with the camera, and Anaid Gutierrez Cruz fulfilled our every desire wrt hair and make-up. We are thrilled with the results that these three talented people produced. But it wouldn't have been remotely possible without the production skills of Shayna and Nicole; the design and sewing collaboration with Mutsuko, Kelli, and Jeannette; and the styling help of Mark. Finally, we were graced with the presence of Nancy who keeps us focused on doing good. 

Thank you all. We love the results and can't wait to work with you again. And everyone can see the results here 
Be sure to look at both Spring and Fall 2015. Let us know what you think. 

Most fondly, 
Team Camilla
