In my absence I've been preparing the Alexandra Grecco AW12 collection and to much relief things are finally winding down a bit!
Here are a few behind the scenes images I snapped during the shoot at one of the most breathtaking buildings I've ever seen! This incredible space, called Beekman Place, is currently under renovation to become a luxury hotel after over a decade of being abandoned. I feel so lucky to have been able to see it un- touched with all its intricate detail which I hope will be preserved. Check out some amazing photos of the building over at Sally Jane Vintage too!
Because the building was abandoned, there was of course no heat, which should explain the heavy coats and scarves. Thank you to my wonderful team of talents for being such great sports!
The adorable symbol for ghost towns on the official Montana highway map is a teensy crooked house and they are sprinkled throughout the glorious counties of Big Sky Country. Our many miles of driving on wide open roads were often interrupted by spontaneous detours to abandoned mining towns and hot spring spas. While some towns resembled old western movie sets, others were too eerie to observe for too long. It was fascinating!
