Shooting with designer Kiyeon Nam never ceases to be a fun, collaborative, thoughtful, and inspiring experience. Kiyeon developed her meticulous skill and honed her stylistic taste at F.I.T.and immediately upon graduating began to share her vision with the larger fashion world. She has since worked as a fashion designer for long standing companies such as Donna Karan and Elie Tahari.
The n/a/m collection is a sophisticated, contemporary knitwear line that balances femininity and edge by infusing structure and texture with flattering body conscious silhouettes built into each style. Irregardless of the creation, "comfort, texture, and balance" continue to be the key elements manifested in her collections.
Besides her professional achievements and endeavors as a designer, Kiyeon is also a mother of two beautiful daughters. It absolutely blows my mind how this woman manages everything as an amazing mother, wife, designer, and entrepreneur! She is genuinely an enthusiastic and lively person always ready to share her pure, infectious creative energy.
Regarding the photographic approach to this shoot, I focused on fusing the idea of a luxurious ambiance with a classic touch, compatible to Kiyeon's collection. With the talents of our beautiful model from Trump agency, the sophisticated and tasteful makeup of Aeriel D'andrea, and hair by Taka Tokuyama it was a successful afternoon!
Again, what a great team and wonderful look book for n/a/m. Cheers!
