These pictures were taken a while ago, when a photographer friend of mine Fann, asked me to help style a shoot for her portfolio. I was glad I went after shopping for Lanvin x H&M. Her theme was silver screen inspired so there were a lot of black and white dresses, polka dots, fitted, and vintage garments. I just wanted to share some photos I took during short breaks and hopefully I'll be able to add some of her work after her approval.

Lanvin x H&M: Photodiary

Me: Follow me on twitter. (@J_Camacho)

     Unfortunately, I woke up too late because I was tired from partying the night before the release of this collaboration. All jokes aside, I'm quite content with my purchase. Yes, I wanted the metallic blue or even the bronze pair, but ended up with black. I love that even though they look basic, the structure of the heel is quite different from others. I showed them to my brother in law, and surprisingly, he also wanted a pair. My friend Audrey and I went to an H&M in 5th Ave. at around 1 and yet the line was still building outside of the store. It's crazy how many people have also lined up the night before. I mean, they did have appealing clothes that had fun prints especially the voluminous dresses for women. I just wish they sold more of everything, but we can't always have what we want now can we?

     After visiting H&M, we walked to Columbus Circle hence the hanging lit star objects located above this entry. We also passed by stores such as Louis Vuitton and Forever21 that just opened recently on 5th Ave. Frvr21 is branching out everywhere making it accessible for many customers, hopefully the men's section makes an improvement soon. I just wanted to share with you guys a few photos of me and a few friends getting ready for a night out. Fabulous, no??

Seventh Annual CFDA Vogue Fashion Fund Awards

The prices have increased to $300,000 for the winner and $100,000 each for the runners-up. It never hurts to have a little cash. Diane von Furstenberg and Reed Krakoff mentioned that it was such a hard decision to make, and anyone of them could have won. 

Congrats Billy Reid, and of course, to the runners-up Eddie Borgo and Prabal Gurung! It was great working with Billy Reid during his Spring/Summer 2011 Collection. 

Everyone looked fabulous.

Whims Of Thoughts

        Hey Guys! Sorry for my absence the past few days. There's no excuses, but I just took my SATs this weekend in Staten Island and spent my weekend with Audrey there. I had a fun photo shoot with Mike Knapp and I will post the photos soon. Other than that, I've been working on my portfolio- meaning afterschool trips to fabric stores such as Mood in fashion district, developing different design aesthetic from different inspirations, and finally producing them on a piece of paper that would be used as an addition to my growing portfolio. I'm confident to say that I am pretty excited yet nervous. I think my portfolio is strong, with different color palettes, textures, and structure. My In Person Portfolio with FIT will be this saturday so.. wish me luck!! :)

Here are a few photos from my friend Sydney's and Fernanda's blog. Check them out.
