It could have been a fairytale. It wasn't. (You may remember reading why.) But despite the challenges and the hindrances imposed by my inexplicable physiology on this shoot for Vogue Mexico, the resulting editorial, published this month in that magazine, is surprisingly sleek. And it managed to turn out so because everything else that day, as if in compensation, proved more than idyllic: the location was surreal (Javier Senosiain's Casa Orgánica), the weather divine (mild mid sixties in Mexico City), and the team was expert, and kind (all local Mexican artists, styling all-Mexican garment labels, in an all-Mexican structure). Illness, flowers, Mexicanism and all, it would have made Frida Kahlo proud.
