Last October, the photographer Justin French was sent here by Vogue magazine to shoot what I was doing here to feature designers working outside fashion capitals. I rallied a group of friends who have continuously supported me since I moved up here. We shot for seven hours straight in every location we could think of. As I love logistical challenges, it was great fun, and since I was a fan of Justin's work, it was even more exciting. These photos made it into the magazine, both shot at Franklin Stage, the theater here in town. I love these images. The freemasons painted the backdrop behind Coco Hill (wearing her Lillian Jefferson costume). I was so grateful Patrica and Leslie drove in to open the theater for us, Patricia Buckley shown here wearing the very first Lillian dress.
