Leave it to style maven June Ambrose to knock us off our feet with shockingly amazing garb. Spotted at New York Fashion week last February, June was wearing a pair of Skeletal Heels made by Toronto darlings DSquared from their Fall/Winter 2010 collection. Untrue to form, June ditched her signature turban for a bowler hat.
Speaking of bowler hats, how chic does June’s daughter, Summer, look with a bowler hat of her own? June and Summer were not the only fashionable mother daughter duo during fashion week in New York. Remember Tessa? Watching mothers and daughters bop around fashion week to catch the shows reminded me of my mother taking me with her to all her social functions. It wasn’t a pain as one might think. Quite the contrary, actually. I would assume my own little world and interpretations amidst all the movement and noise. I suppose this also applies to the young girls who accompany their mothers to the shows. It would be such a marvel to become intimately acquainted with how children interpret what they see at the runway and on the street during fashion week, and what it means to them. Take note, Moms.
Serendipity can never hit me enough times, but when it does, oh man am I ever struck! A few weeks ago, I posted a photo belonging to a two part photo theme of NY Fashion Week women with wonderfully dressed hair (or head-dresses). The woman in the photo looked marvellous, not only because of her style, but because she was radiant. Well, get this! I ran into her at Toronto Fashion Week! Little did I know who she was. All I saw was that radiant woman from New York Fashion Week in her signature turban, this time in a different colour, and her geeky chic shades. Turns out she is June Ambrose, celebrity stylist and published author. She styled last night’s Jay Manuel “Attitude” show. June was a treat to shoot! She granted me the opportunity of a mini photoshoot as she playfully posed for me! I hope June Ambrose will be for me, what Anna Della Russo is for Tommy Ton. A wonderful muse whom I shoot at regularly at fashion weeks and events. Who knows, she might pull an ADR move and grant me access to take photos of her in her apartment as she models her massive inventory of clothes. Here’s hoping…
