Last September, in 2015, at the bright, fresh, and uncertain outset of my first Gap Year, I took a day out of my action-packed debut New York Fashion Week to shoot a lookbook and campaign for the niche Indie brand Ace & Jig, founded and owned by two American women who design all the textiles and fabrics they use in their collections. They are some of the most down-to-earth, personable characters of this fantastic fashion galaxy I work in, and they bring beauty—and humanity—to the world with each new collection. (Fun fact: the factory in India that they employ to weave their textiles provides all its workers with local organic produce grown using repurposed water!)
This September, at the outset of my second gap year, and in my third and far less action-packed NYFW, I again shuttled over to Brooklyn for a day to shoot their look-book and campaign. The lookbook is out now, on vogue.com. (The campaign images are still to come, and I can't wait!) Thank you again to this wonderful, inspiring team: it was a pleasure to work with you ladies again!
