Back in June, I had the amazing opportunity to work with Carrie Wheeler and Laurie McLay of Eco Chic International and my friend and very talented fashion designer, Hajnalka Mandula. I'd worked with each of them in my days as a makeup artist so to be THE photographer for such a cool editorial was an opportunity not to be missed!
Hajnalka Mandula is a long time friend who was expecting at the time of our shoot and actually gave birth 2 days afterward! She is an amazing woman and uber talented designer and as you will see from the spread, her work just keeps getting better and better. Check out her website Mandula
to see past and current collections as well as store locations.
Eco Chic International is the culmination of the creative and compassionate mind and heart of Carrie Wheeler, with whom I share a love for animals and the desire to make a difference in our world. We had talked many months before about how we could work together to spread the word about living compassionately and I'm very proud to say we've done just that.
Thank you Carrie, Laurie and Hajnalka for such an awesome experience and I hope we will continue our work together on uniting fashion, compassion and green living and making it eco-chic!
