When I was writing my 2013 wrap-up post I realized that I never got around to posting a lot of the editorials I did last year. Figured I should at least put up my favourite one, sigh I am so bad at blogging. :(

All outfits from Mother of London, Long Parachute Dress from All Saints

I'd been in love with Mother of London's designs for a long, long, long, long time.

Being able to photograph pieces from the label was like a dream come true.

When I visited Mildred's studio in L.A. I swear I wanted to raid the place. Her agreeing to attend the shoot and offering to help with styling was an extremely sweet gesture and she's just sooooo awesome.

Around the time when I was planning to shoot this my Long Parachute Dress from All Saints arrived and I thought it would be perfect to pair with some of her individual tops. I know I'm not the only one who thinks the particular coordination turned out totally Edward-Scissorhand-ish.

We were also super lucky to get Denise from Photogenics who moved amazingly well and was an utter delight to work with. It was so smooth that the photoshoot itself took lesser than three hours, probably my shortest ever for so many images.

Also thanks to Angela for the wonderful makeup, Chloe and Kelsey for putting up with my hair demands, and Conan being the ever wonderful friend and assistant.

High quality images can be found on Fashion Gone Rogue.

Behind the scenes photos from footage by David C.P. Chan.

I guess this is my sort-of Halloween post because StarCraft II took over my weekend and I didn't celebrate at all. Felt so bad for the kids who came knocking on our door cuz we had no candies! Sighhh ;_;

PS: Please pardon the hideous sunhat. Got it at Walmart the morning I shot with Sugizo because nothing else was open!
