Los Angeles Beauty Makeup Artist | California Desert Shoot

In a collaborative effort, me as a Los Angeles beauty makeup artist and wardrobe stylist, Tiger House Films production company worked with super-talented fashion photographer Matt Pluz and model Ashley Shoemaker for a high fashion photo shoot in the California desert.

Matt Pluz is an internationally published fashion photographer based in Miami Beach, his work has been showcased in hundreds of publications such as ELLE Spain, Sports Illustrated, Forbes, Maxim,  L’Officiel Lithuania, and many more.

Miami Wardrobe Stylist | Lotus Cars Photo + Video Shoot

Miami Wardrobe Stylist | Lotus Cars Photo + Video Shoot

As a Miami wardrobe stylist, I got hired by VistaAerials to work on a Lotus Cars photo + video shoot. VistaAerials was contacted by Lotus Cars to hire as a commercial production company in Miami to produce their commercial in Miami, Florida.

Miami is one of the fashion hubs of the USA, I styled 2 models from Next Management. I wanted to “make a statement” with style and at the same time matching the models look to the cars. How you dress, talk is “who you are” to most people, truly your own brand. Few people will ever come to know the “real you”, so your personal style, your car choice is an effective way to quickly show the world your polish, determination, goals, and ambition. This is the reason why it was really important for me to find the right pieces of wardrobe to match this sports car commercial shoot. Usually, I shop 3-4 times more wardrobe then we actually need because I want to present a ton of options to the client.

About Lotus Cars: Lotus Cars Limited is a British automotive company that manufactures sports cars and racing cars with headquarters in Hethel, England. Lotus cars include the Esprit, Elan, Europa, Elise, Exige, Evora, and Evija sports cars and it had motor racing success with Team Lotus in Formula One.

It was such a pleasure to work with Lotus Cars and Vista Aerials on this project and I wish to work with them again on another car commercial production as a Miami wardrobe stylist.

L.A. Creative Coordinator | “The Society” Branded Videos

As an L.A. creative coordinator, I coordinated the art department and managed the communication between the NETFLIX team and our THF team. I was helping the production team, Tiger House Films, in the hiring process so I reached out to a lot of people who we thought were a good fit for this client. Styling the sets and my ability to shape the look of the project through my creative coordination and bringing on the creative team was the basis for Tiger House Films hiring me to be a part of the project.
