My photo shoot with Klara took place one week before she participated in the Miss BC pageant. Rather than pick a cocktail dress or evening gown, I suggested we do something fun, summery and flowy.

Caroline is a bit casually dressed for SidewalkRunway but there was something about her knee high stockings and ponytail that attracted my attention. Her inspiration for her outfit was comfort. She was heading to work and chose flats because she would be standing for most of her shift. She’s wearing a “two color” outfit but each piece came from a different store.
 
 
Caroline’s wearing:
 
Jacket: Zara
Bag: Calvin Klein
Stockings: American Apparel
Shoes: Camper (bought in Paris)

Have the longer days and warmer temperatures prompted you to look for last year’s swimsuit?
 
If you’re in the mood to mark your return to the beach, pool or boat deck in a new suit, HannahMiddletonSwim will send her 2016 collection down the runway on May 17th. Nakita’s wearing a suit from Hannah’s 2015 collection. Her new collection was inspired by Middle Eastern earth tone colors, geometric patterns and rope details. Naturally I asked if that meant her collection would be more modest than her 2015 collection. “No!” she replied. “I’m still making statement pieces for confident women. My designs tend to be quite sexy   because I design suits that flatter the female body.”
 
Twenty two suits will range from sporty and high waist to suits that can be worn to a fancy party. Hannah also offers a custom fitting as well as the ability to replace a thong bikini bottom with a conventional, full coverage bottom. Prices range from $120 – $200. At the end of the show guests will have an opportunity to meet Hannah and view the suits up close.
 
This is your opportunity to dress up! The fashion show is scheduled for Tuesday, May 17th at 7:30pm.   To purchase tickets, visit www.HannahMiddletonSwim.com. Prices range from $35 – $45. The fashion show will be held at Performance Works and the After Party will be held at the Sandbar Seafood restaurant. Both venues are located on Granville Island and parking is free after 4:00pm. Bus #50 has also has a stop nearby.
 
No sooner than Nakita moved to Vancouver (to pursue pilot season acting and singing) she landed a lead role in a new feature film in Alberta. Nakita was Miss Teen Canada 2012.

My Sidewalk Shoot With Seka

Seka is a few months away from earning her Masters. She works part-time in a teahouse and has never modeled. While she hinted at being uneasy about the shoot, I had no idea how deeply her feeling ran. Unbeknownst to me I put her mind at ease when I pieced together an outfit and select a location that reflected her personality. Seka spotted the vest  which became the inspiration for her outfit. To her it represented strength and professionalism. I paired it with a pink blouse  which represented her feminine side. She absolutely loved the heels and the blue grey trousers  matched the pinstripes in the vest. Unfortunately the skinny pink belt which tied the entire outfit together didn’t fit properly.
 
Seka is confident, articulate and likes to lead with her ideas but she’s also, stylish and feminine. After the shoot, she reflected on her initial uneasiness. Leading up to the shoot she was concerned the photos would put her in a position to be compared to the airbrushed magazine models. Also family photos somehow incorrectly capture her expression and make her appear far too serious. Lastly, she was concerned the photos would appear unnatural. Rather than cancel the shoot she said life is about personal growth and putting yourself in unique and challenging experiences. She kept the appointment and was glad she did. She has a new appreciation for all the elements (e.g. clothes, location, poses, expressions etc.) that must come together to create a memorable image. She also has new ideas for her wardrobe. Seka will soon start her practicum and enjoys spending Sunday’s with her husband.
 
Special thanks to Narhirah Parker for make-up!

Love is in the air and Valentine’s Day is not far away.
 
Instead of the traditional color of red, Zara and I found pastel colors of lavender, mauve, tan, grey and dusty rose for our themed shoot. She described the colors as soft and spring-like.
 
I picked the lace floral print skirt and blouse from the Couturist. The popular online site opened a pop-up shop (on Robson St. near Thurlow). After several weeks they will close their shop shortly after Valentine’s Day. However they will continue to serve customers online.
 
You may recognize Zara from her 2011/12 TV show called Life & Style with Zara. As a multi-talented individual she continues to keep busy as an Actress, Activist, TV Host, Producer and Model.

To plan our shoot Julia and I met at the Cou+uris+ popup shop on Robson St. Incidentally there’s a good chance they will close on or near Valentine’s Day. So hurry while they are still downtown.
 
When Julia arrived she was wearing a vintage orange leather jacket. It was a statement piece too hard to ignore. So we shifted gears and found a mustard yellow A-line skirt at Zara. The autumn color combination became the inspiration for her outfit. Everything fell into place when I found a pair of burgundy heels and blouse.
 
Julia enjoys modeling and she’s pursuing an acting career. She’s typically cast as the “girl next door” but welcomes the opportunity to play a strong female character.

Jacket: Vintage
Blouse: Forever 21
Belt: Big Buddha
Skirt: Zara
