I'm happy to announce that Hourglass Heaven is in the June issue of Tatler in the "Hot Couture" section & will be featured in Condé Nast Traveller UK's Luxury Gift Guide in June as well.
This month's issue will feature a picture @jennita18. Like many places in the world right now, most businesses are closed. Photo-shoots often involve a lot of close contact, just like Film/TV sets. The make-up artist & hair stylist get quite close to the people they working with, you often have someone helping out with clothing & accessories making sure everything looks right (the designer, the photographer, wardrobe), and photo-shoots are often indoors. With the current state of emergency here in BC, none of these things are happening.
So I struggled to find photos in time for print! I was glad I had a Plan C, a backup plan for my backup plan.
Jennit was at the model tryouts for Startup Fashion Week Toronto last fall. She looked great in the sample! Sadly, it was the XS and all the samples for the mini-collection were bigger. I remembered the photos, so I sent her a DM on Instagram to ask if I could have permission to use them for the magazines. Happily, she agreed.
She says, "I'm an elementary school teacher, model and social activist, I was doing those activities at the same time in Colombia the country where I am from, but since a year and few months ago I moved to Canada."
I think Covid-19 has been really hard for everybody. And I know I miss hugging too!
Thanks to Jennit for modeling and for sharing her thoughts during these challenging times.
Jennit is wearing the Red & Black Sheath dress from the Dark Fire Collection. This dress can be made to order for $550 CAD.
The dresses are manufactured locally in Metro Vancouver. Manufacturers are essential services, as I mentioned in a previous post, we were actually surveyed early on about capabilities to help with producing masks and gowns for healthcare workers.
Hourglass Heaven is one of the many companies who volunteered to help out with the BCAG Local Covid Response, in whatever way we can.
