         I couldn't be more thrilled to share these photos with you, showcasing the swimwear and boots I designed in collaboration with Ella Grace and Butrich, respectively. As a designer, it's always an incredible feeling to see my visions come to life in tangible form, and even more so when they're being worn and photographed.

         For this shoot, I knew I wanted to find the perfect backdrop that would enhance the vibrancy and playfulness of the designs. And when I discovered the Chromatic Gate in Santa Barbara, I knew it was the one. This massive rainbow art installation is one of my favorite places, and it holds a special significance for me.

      Rainbows have always been a symbol of hope and positivity, representing a message of resilience and strength.          For me, they also represent diversity and inclusivity, with each color of the rainbow being unique yet blending seamlessly together. In designing these pieces, I wanted to capture the same spirit of diversity and positivity that rainbows embody.

      And when I saw my outfit against the Chromatic Gate, I knew I had found the perfect match. The bold colors and patterns of the swimwear and boots complemented the installation perfectly, and it felt like a celebration of creativity and self-expression.

       Shooting these photos was an absolute joy, and I couldn't have done it without the help of my incredible husband, Ben.  Together, we captured the essence of these designs, blending them seamlessly with the beauty and inspiration of the Chromatic Gate. I'm grateful for the opportunity to share these images with you, and I hope they bring a little bit of joy and positivity into your day.
