black crane + diana koenigsberg photography = joy

a few of my favorite things!

i love a little fashion and creating something fresh with friends! excited that photographer diana koenigsberg invited me to collaborate on a shoot for the beautiful black crane clothing line. i could dance, choreograph and play in momoko suzuki's beautiful clothes 24/7.

as a little bonus i got to hang out with my favorite make-up man patrick tumey . patrick made me look and feel so great when we worked together on Uniqlo a few years back that of course i was thrilled to see him!!

special thanks to jenny levy for casting the uniquely beautiful margo frances

here is a bit about the show:

With all original concept, choreography, and stage/costume design, the story of LILIT physically cross-examines historical gender contradictions and amplifies ancient female howls through a deafening channel of thrashing virtuosity. Her story takes shape in the edgy silence of a hovering unmarked enemy. She is the folkloric assignment unseen female forces and the answer to otherwise inexplicable phenomena among men.

Grey Ant...hysterica collaborator extraordinare

dear friend and hysterica collaborator Grey Ant is a

    CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Finalist

Grant and partner Natalie Levy are currently featured in the November issue of Vogue!

I'm happy to celebrate an amazing collaborator and staunch supporter of my work. Before moving to NYC Grant created some of my favorite costumes for Hysterica, including the evening length "sticks & stones." I was thrilled when Grant asked me to create a promo to launch his stunning eyewear line (see video below) featuring Hysterica dancers Tara Brook, Hunter Hamilton, Julie Schmid and Nathan Kim.

Grey Ant is coveted by everyone from Beyonce to Lady Gaga

Vogue says "Grey Ant-the moniker comes from the nickname founder Grant Krajecki, was given as a kid by his Midwestern family—evolved exclusively into eyewear two years ago from its origins in Krajecki’s L.A.-based womenswear line."
Grant is a visionary and a lovely man...so happy for his success!
