For Marianna Barksdale's Spring/Summer 2013 collection: The Albatross I was hired to produce a runway show and mini-campaign.
"The overall feel of the collection is executed through Caravaggio’s style of chiaroscuro, violent contrasts of light and dark to create his novelty “radical naturalism.” The emphasis is on the balance between shadow and light, good and evil and achieving psychological and metaphysical balance." ~ Marianna Barksdale
With this as our concept, the Bryant Park Hotel's Cellar Bar was the perfect backdrop for the runway with its gothic architecture and modern glow. Guests were provided with a program (including garment list) and a lasercut "glass shard" acrylic keychain etched with the designer's logo.
