One of my favorite part about being a photographer is being able to meet and work with so many talented individuals. I recently had the honor of working with an up and coming Chicago fashion designer Lexia Vadevoulis while shooting her Senior Thesis Collection for Columbia College Chicago, A Worthy Warrior. Of course, it helps that I am a Columbia Alumni myself! Lexia is graduating in only a few short weeks and I cannot wait to see her take Chicago and the fashion world by storm!

A/W 2012: A Worthy Warrior

Lexia Vadevoulis Lookbook

The collection was inspired by ancient Greek armor. Focusing on strong structure mixed with the element of drape, something that is synonymous with ancient Greek outerwear. The collection brings out the warrior in every woman, while also retaining feminine silhouettes. With the use of leather, suede, and wool, each piece has been meticulously crafted to create a combination of line and movement.
