Diane and Paul at Mobile Dressing Room (aka mini van) on Washington Ave, South Beach


Another new experience. I’ve worked with professional photographers many times before, but always for a client’s products. This time, I’m the client, and my Cortese Design bags are the focus of the shoot.
My friend, and jewelry designer, Sandy Edie (who also does a fabulous job as makeup artist!) packed my mobile dressing room (aka Marsha the mini van) and headed off to meet photographer Paul Andre, and model Diane, on the corner of Espanola Way and Washington Avenue on South Beach yesterday morning.
A lot of work for everyone and great fun too! About 6 outfit and location changes, perfect weather, wind machine, a la Mother Nature, for great hair effects, live background traffic and not so great booming music from the shop next to our mobile dressing room, but hey, it’s their choice.
Two more snapshots. I’ll be posting some Pro shots as soon as they’re ready.

Cortese Design Bags getting lots of attention!

I knew it felt busy, but when I started to write out all of the connections, shows and press coverage my bags have been getting, I’m very happy and looking forward to even more!
