BLURRRRRR….the shoot



One of the things I find challenging is that the images of my collection never seem quite current since I am always designing new things – putting together a photoshoot is costly and I find myself frustrated because somehow it feels like my images cant keep up with me – so we have a couple real shoots coming up with the yoga line and the white collection and my creative go to and art director Jim Olarte suggested we do a quicky to freshen up the site and to use our creative juices- thankfully he and my photographer that I use on most of my shoots – Joe Scarnici – threw this one in for me as a bonus on the upcoming shoots –

so great to work with the same people

its like magic and we are all speaking our own secret language because we know what each other wants – Jim starting with the inspiration and of course he had a list of several shots he wanted to get – then Joe comes in and comments if you want this you cant have that and narrows it down to the main direction of the shoot – this one being blurry – oh – I forgot to mention that we were looking for a model and Jim suggested I do it = never have done it before and really didn’t want to spend the 2K on a model so i said yes!  Different to be on this side of the camera and asked the guys if the model was stiff????!!! anyway – it was fun and we are all so efficient together my assistant on the shoot Jess was amazed at how smoothly and seamless it went!  And soooo many shots to choose from ! look at the site to see more KATHARINESTORY.COM   



it makes me think about

all the places where we interact with each other and that we are all creating memories together of moments that web together a relationship thats uniquely ours – its so beautiful to think of the people in my life I have a history with and the people that I am beginning to make a history with – that web of life and the love that connects it all together into a sweet cosmic soup –

next stop is the KYS yoga launch next month – get on our list for our P A R T Y ****!

Katharine Story is a California fashion designer whose signature style, which evokes the bohemian elegance of her native Laguna Beach, has won worldwide acclaim. Favoring timeless, confident beauty over seasonal trends, the label balances bold, hand-dyed color with flowing, unstructured shapes that are ultimately defined by the wearer’s body. Over the years and by way of private showings at her boutiques in Los Angeles and Laguna Beach, Story has become a treasured favorite among celebrities and other glitterati. They embrace the label for its power to reflect their confidence, worldliness and exhilaration for life. The Katharine Story brand now appears in trunk shows across the US and in several of the world’s leading fashion boutiques. The label is also a yearly presence at Paris and New York fashion weeks and at the Miami Swim Show. Story’s ready-to-wear collection features lace, chiffon, velvet, sequins and brocades imagined into kaftans and other classically flowing garments. The effect is femininity and sex appeal made only the more exquisite by a sense of intuition and exotic wisdom. Her latest work, while hewing close to her roots, features leather fringe, accents of fur, and oversize, semiprecious stone and metal accessories – a luxurious blend of casbah and beach club, with a smoky hint of goth. Story was born in Laguna Beach to a family of artisans. She spent her 20s in London and worked at Harvey Nichols while selling her own designs at Camden Market. Ever since, travel has been the inspiration for Story’s distinctive work.
