Flowers & Fashion in Costa Rica!
Sep 07, 2011
When we were in Costa Rica this past fall, our team produced 3 shoots in 5 days.Â For 'fun' on our day off, we decided to organize and inpromptu shoot and just let the creative juices flow!Â We shot in two locations- on a beautiful lane surrounded by Costa Rican cows and barbed wire fences and in a gritty kayak shop. I donated a Jenny Yoo silk shantung bolero to the cause that Tony Palmeri, the creative floral genius behind Datura: a modern garden, Â glued- yes, glued- Costa Rican flowers toÂ that he hand-picked from the property that we were staying on.Â The end result was a stunningÂ floral bolero that we paired with an organza Modern Trousseau Â gown and stunning jewelry fromÂ Haute Bride. Beauty maven DD NickelÂ added her unique touches and transformed our model Carol into a whimsical, tropical, modern-day version of Chiquita Banana.Â All of the flowers that you see on Carol- headpiece, earrings, bolero- are all real and picked from the earth in Costa Rica! Â It was all in thanÂ name ofÂ good fun...and fashion! The whole ordeal was captured on film by Jim Alteri of Vintage Cinema: [vimeo clip_id="21984517" " width="625"] Stay tuned for tomorrow's Costa Rican post that features several stunning properties on Los Suenos Resort.
