It had been months since I did this project with Nasha Adinda (model), Chandra Prawendha (photographer) and Arinda Kristie (make up artist). Nasha happens to be my first quite-tall model I've ever worked with at that time. Before her, my model was never above 5'7" cuz the pro-ones (the 'you-have-to-book-them-and-put-them-in-magazines' models) are taken by all the big agencies--and I wasn't big-named enough to work with them. Cuz you know, model-girls in my country isn't as tall as the international model standard. What I used to have left are the under 5'7"s, but luckily I have her! Nasha is 5'8", been asked to model a quite times already (which she just never want to until now.. lol) and she stood out everywhere she goes.
Well, anyway, she happens to be one of my best friends ;p
It had already been months as well since we had our last quality-chat. Short and sweet. She, waiting for her early-morning meal before fasting as I was just fooling around doing whatever. We were talking about John Galliano's amazing A/W 09/10 Fashion Show when suddenly I decided to take a look at her polyvores. You should check it out, it was amazing! http://www.polyvore.com/cgi/profile?id=732162. I really love the last pieces she made, so Italian Vogue meets Numero art direction. We were chatting and chilling for quite a while when she suddenly showed me a piece of polyvore she made quite a long time ago.
It was her, on that picture. It was what we worked on together! She was stunning and beautiful. So Parisian Chic. So European yet simple, and indestructive. I loved her in that picture, and the pieces I gave to her was just what she was meant to wear.
And also that polyvore thing she made with that picture!! The mixing-ups!!!
I totally loved it, and immediately asked her about having that piece in my portfolio--not forgetting about mentioning her name, of course. And she said yes, of course! Don't you dare saying no, darling. Lol.
I am so waiting for her to give her comments as she read this post. Please check out her polyvore and let me know how you guys think of it!
Cheers, love, xoxo
