Belle Armoire’s winter 2015 issue ran a feature on my “h/g: you be the hunter, i’ll be the gatherer” collection. This was the first time I was asked to write the copy for the feature which was equally cool and strange since I’m not a professional writer. The process was one I am familiar with: at first it was hard and then fun and then I cried and then I felt proud. Kind of like any new artistic endeavor, right? Can’t complain being paid to write about myself though, since I am THE expert on me. Heyo, hire me to write about me!
I had make the tough choice between sending in a photo series or sending in my clothing collection. I opted to send my garments to the in-house photographer because I always love to see how other people shoot my clothing. I love organizing photoshoots (okay, I hate organizing anything, c’mon….but I LOVE having control over how my work is shown), but I am becoming more and more curious to see how someone outside of my own brain can interpret the same concept. I gave up control. You hear me? I, Audio Heluik the Control Freak, GAVE. UP. CONTROL.
And the outcome was beautiful.
