Shu Uemura Iron Design Challenge: Grand Prize Winner

Friday, November 14 | 2008

These photos are the entry that I submitted for the Shu Uemura Iron Design Challenge. The task was to use specific heat-control products.I wanted to create something light and airy, with a lot of texture. Colleen Quen designed the jacket, and I named the photo after her design — "The Emperor's Jacket." She is a fashion designer in San Francisco and her clothes are just fabulous. The image is amazing, and I love how Tony Maesto captured the regal and confident mood of our model — it goes so well with the concept of the emperor's jacket. The prize includes a trip to Japan for two. I can't wait to go.
