A few weeks ago I went through some of my fashion books for inspiration. One of my favorites, “Model as Muse”, by Peter Lindbergh got my creativity flowing. I remember going to the exhibit at, The Metropolitan Museum of Art to see Peter’s work. Before leaving, I stopped in the gift shop and purchased the hardcover book.

The photos that spoke to me then and now were part of the Chanel Biker collection. I loved the blend of femininity meets edgy. I just knew this shoot would be fun and easy. Well, not easy to get to as I had to climb the face of Breakneck Ridge. However, once at the top, click-click-click.
