Following four years at Topshop, Charlotte joined the Soho House team as their House Style Designer, after the SH inclusion committee raised concerns over the look and feel of many of their current uniforms. In particular, there was a women’s uniform that was a french maid style. In addition to creating cover options, I captured Charlotte and her team during her first fitting in Los Angeles as she works to transform Soho House uniforms so that the staff can feel just as confident as the members. Read the whole story here.

On the final day of Phillip Lim's month-long hiatus this past summer, Alex Maeland and I sat down for an afternoon conversation and portraits in his beautiful gallery-like Tribeca home. Casual and unstructured, the conversation spanned everything from Lim's upbringing in Southern California and creative inspiration to the changing face of fashion, the business of creativity and cultivating a new generation of young creatives. I highly recommend heading over to MAEKAN now to experience the full story including a wonderfully edited audio interview.
Thank you to Alex, Eugene, and the entire team at MAEKAN such a fun opportunity.
