Fashion + Art = Lampshades!

"Most brilliant ideas begin with a lightbulb. This one began with a lampshade. Gump's handed a basic shade to an array of artists, designers and celebrities, and asked them to create one-of-a-kind works to be auctioned in support of a new endowed scholarship to the California College of the Arts (CCA). Their works will be presented in one gala evening, atop the heads of models on the catwalk, in what will surely rank as one of the most inspired fashion shows ever staged."

This past Wednesday we had the distinct pleasure of shooting a very unique fashion show for Gump's. What a blast! It was so cool to be able to shoot so many incredible designs as well as to see such an array of San Francisco's most respected artists and designers come out to support such a fun and fabulous event. As an added bonus, our neighbor and good friend Kathleen Deery (her studio is just behind ours) designed the shows finale shade and it was truly decadent.

There are still shades available on the online auction here if you are interested in donating for a great cause: Clothes Off Our Backs.

We are busy editing the film from the event but will be sure to feature it here when it's ready!
