Styling Matt's Amazing Eco Couture Creations

Matt Richmond's Eco Couture Dresses: Saving The Planet 1 Dress At A Time
October 10, 2010: Fashion Gorilla Rampage in Royal Oak, MI

It's not everyday a Fashion Stylist gets a call to collaborate with a Fashion Designer who uses anything but fabric for his dresses. So I was delighted to style the accessories for Matt's very first Fashion Gorilla Rampage event.

Really what happened was a secret society of talented fashion people came together to support Matt's Fashion Vision and the results are still poring in.

These few photos I snapped are but a slice of the photo archives to find their way around town and into the spotlight.

Great Work team Aveda (Hair & Makeup), Matt Richmond, AJ, all the Models, Style Assistants, and Photographers. The fruits of our labor will be distributed in the near future at a small reunion party to be announced soon. See you then!

No Ordinary Bag Lady

Celine: Bowler Bag
Fendi: Zucca Tote
Prada: Mini cross body bag

Valentino: Red Patent Leather

I'm not sure how old I was when I began to carry a handbag on a regular basis. Do you recall when that took place in your life? It's kind of a murky transition isn't it.

Like any other fashion collector I have an eclectic mix of handbags in my closet and am always on the hunt for another special addition. Each of the above bags would certainly be on that list if I could afford to acquire them that is.

At this point I'm content however to study, admire and write about my favorites.

These bags provide the right mix of utility, beauty, and glamour for my active lifestyle.

If I had to choose only one of the bunch the Celine Bowler Bag gets the nod. I'm a sucker for hip, smart and fabulous. I'm also an admitted "Bag Lady" but ordinary is a No No!
