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
