ULTIMATE STYLE MUSE
Amy's style inspirations are often found unexpectedly. While some are known cultural icons, it’s often a forgotten women of style. She is currently obsessed with Renée Perle who moved to Paris and became a model for the couturier, Doeuillet. In 1930, she met the French photographer Jacques-Henri Lartigue while strolling in a Parisian street. “Renée Perle was also incredibly avant-garde in her fashion taste. She wore modern boyfriend t-shirts and tanks with loose crisp high waisted trousers along armfuls of bangles. She has an enviable sense of style that deserves further exploration.”
HER TRADE SECRET:
The Mood Board
“When I'm developing an idea for an upcoming fashion editorial, I do a lot of research, then gather my thoughts visually with mood boards. So many creatives are visual people. The mood board is a perfect way to anchor the ideas and assist with planning the overall visual approach with all of the team members.”
