Oakland School for the Arts

Inspiration inspiring inspiration. I had the honor and privilege to work with high school students from Oakland's School for the Arts in the past and was delighted to find I would be working with them again in the future. The production design students put on an annual fashion show, literally from top to bottom. Building runways, designing clothes, casting models, lighting, music they put on a full production. From the first time I laid eyes upon the talents produced by some of the most motivated and creative young people, I was inspired and impressed. The hard work that is put not only into their designs, but the conceptual side of their designs left me in awe.

P.S. I think about how awkward I would have been in front of a camera at their age...I guess that hasn't changed.Anyway, the models seriously channeled model spirit.
