Since my first year in college, I've been deeply interested in the story and work of Frida Kahlo. I found her paintings, often characterized by autobiographical elements, to be such a fascinating mix of surrealism and her powerful narrative. Her character was instantly engraved in my mind. One of the most celebrated talents in the history of Mexican art, Frida Khalo is a symbol of national and indigenous tradition, and a beacon among feminists in Latin America and the world. In case you're not familiar with her story, her life was severely dictated by physical boundaries, as she spent most of...

Inspired by a deep love of art, our style team created a visual homage to Baroque Artists, with a stylish twist. In an editorial story worthy of royalty, deep hues, contrasting layers, and dramatic makeup were combined to create an undeniably dramatic scene. (Yes, we did Games of Thrones before it was cool).

The sequins, the shine, the big hair. For some, the 80's were truly the best of ages. For us, it was the music. For some, it was the fashion. A decade marked by bold style, shocking colors, and rather strange silhouettes, the '80s were a time to experiment with big and bold statements. Between the permed hair, the ripped tights, and leather, some of my all-time favorite bands made their mark, while women dressed for success in oversized blazers that...

The most important element of the shoot is the inherent celebration of 'less'. Many readers have come to expect extravagance and overly complicated sets for editorial fashion shoots; heavily ornamented outfits; over-the-top hair and makeup. It can overpower our senses. It can overload the brain. Sometimes we need to cleanse the palate; that was the uniqueness of this shoot. This story was a celebration of minimalism, that beautiful artistic genre that some of my favorites (Stella, Morris and Anne Truitt) made their own. Meanwhile, in music, minimalism is a call for repetition and iteration, uncomplicated, yet pleasing. By definition, minimalism is synonymous...

As Chief Editor of VETTA Magazine (back in the summer of 2014), I made an extraordinary effort not to fall prey to styling cliches and tired fashion stories for my Texas market. I wanted to break into the fashion editorial landscape with something impactful and beautiful, but not give in too much into my artistic (sometimes wild and uncomprehensible) tendencies. I sought the counsel of my then Fashion Director (and one of my favorite people in the world), Tania Quintanilla, to create a fashion story that was compelling to my readers, but relevant and equally beautiful. The feel we wanted was...
