The Artists Studio


The location picked for Nordstrom's Fall 2010 collection shoot was the most amazing artists studio I'd ever seen, right in the middle of Manhattan. After the first day of shooting I went home and told James (also an artist) all about the studio, its magnificent views and its old world charm. The next day James came by and got to see for himself what an artists paradise it really was! This studio is home to artist Ruben Toledo who is actually the husband of designer Isabel Toledo! They are quite the dynamic duo and for a lovely little article about how they work and inspire one another, please turn HERE.


Rubens work is well known. He's illustrated for many of the worlds top fashion magazines and for many years now he's been the illustrator of Nordstrom’s national designer ad campaign. Hence this little shoot...


To see the pictures we took in Rubens loft (please do!) feel free to have a look at the album I made on my Official Facebook HERE (click).

XOXO COCO

I loved that spread for Nordstrom; I saw it in the September issue of Vogue. When I looked at it I was for sure you would be back! I hope to see you walking in New York Fashion Week!! I didn't see you much on fall 2010 runways.
