I was invited to shoot at a Downtown LA ArtWalk exclusive event called FULL SET. For those that aren't familiar with the ArtWalk concept, well, its exactly what the name insinuates. Once a month, the second thursday of it, Downtown LA livens up with street art presentations; from mobile theaters, to gallery exhibitions, outdoor clubs, and fashion shows! Thats just a few of the activities one can expect to participate in.
I had the privilege of capturing the magic behind Trujillo Collection's very own runway show. It was set to take place at The Lexington on 3rd and Main. As I walked from the venue over to the loft where the models were getting into hair and makeup, it was impressive to see how poppin Downtown really gets during ArtWalk. Along the way, I had to stop for a few minutes to enjoy a street performance of the shakespeare story Macbeth that was set aboard a jimmy rigged stage behind a pickup truck. These kids get creative. Best of all, these activities, for the most part, are free. But enough of that (can u tell i get excited about budget living) :) !
Arthur Trujillo, the owner and designer of Trujillo Collection was hard at work fitting models and directing the makeup direction for his avant garde PRE-F/W 2014 show. I quickly whipped out my camera and started snapping some behind-the-scenes photos....
and then we got a bit inspired and creative ourselves and took the models out for a stroll in their awesome makeup and gear moments before the show!!!! Talk about getting into the true nature of ArtWalk!
Our Photoshoot stroll led us directly into the back-end of the venue where the runway set up started. From the street to the catwalk, Trujillo Collection's showing went without a hitch. Everyone enjoyed the show. The whole night was truly an experience and I'm glad I was able to partake in the fun.
