If there is any way to summarize The Arrivals’ brand, it's precise design, uncompromising quality, and adjustability.
For their very first spring collection, they made a few classic denim pieces, versatile coats (including my favorite AANDO Modular Duster, where removing its sleeves transforms the garment into a vest), and (not surprisingly for the company) a few lighter-build leather jackets, perfect for adding a bit of spring-time cool to one's wardrobe.Read More

I am certainly skeptical of some of the views expressed on this blog. I am neither polyamorous or steeped in the glamor of the fashion industry. I am politically conservative on not only economic but social issues as well, I believe that religion has value that science cannot replace, I hesitate to equate what’s natural with what’s normative, and as a business consultant I spend most of my time in airports and board rooms.

We believe that constant questioning is critical to human progress and that young people today aren't doing enough of it.Read More
I had the pleasure to be a part of a project produced by Offhollywood and Boom Productions several months ago. It was one of the first shoots to ever use the RED Epic Dragon camera.
I was transformed into three looks by Deanna Meluso (makeup), Joshua Ristaino (hair) and Daphna Guttin (styling)- first I was an icy white blonde, then a dark femme fatale, and lastly natural and wet. They used a lot of slow motion capture to create a strong female portrait: a fierce, beautiful, and enchanting.Read More
If I had to choose a single photo shoot in the past that was the most fun and exciting, it would be my work for Elle Mexico called "World's End." We traveled to Tikal, Guatemala, which is one of the largest archeological sites and urban centers of the Mayan civilization. The site is part of Tikal National Park, and was declared an UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1979.
Tikal was the capital of a conquest state that became one of the most powerful kingdoms of the ancient Maya.
