e are so excited about the pictorial muse issue. In this issue we have some amazing photographers who have created some incredible work focused on various themes that were near and dear to their heart. This issue will also celebrate a profitable 2019 summer. All though it was hot in the city, each editorial demonstrates the dreams and goals of each team and what it took to create such splendor. I know as a photographer and fellow dreamer what hard work it takes to put together just a photo shoot. That includes, thinking up a concept, putting out a mood board, getting a date and location on where you are going to shoot, putting a team together, counting the cost and getting a budget and casting the right model or models for the


WO COMMUTER A moment in time with Agot A moment in time with Agotne Agot has an amazing natural look. Almost hynotising from UC MODELS. So we decided to take a walk and try a campaign style photo shoot.

KING VERSES QUEEN King: Authur Abad @Kingarthur24 Queen: Ivy Dominique @Modelivydominique Designer: Erena Chabes @Couturechebe Photographer: Karl M. Lee @karl_fashion_photographer


The portrait of two noble powers at play. A King and Queen in conflict of thrones, stuck between the path of war and love. They battle each other, in hopes of not succumbing to the ever growing passion for one another. The want to call each other a friend wavers on their lips, but there is too much pride to lose. Maybe too much pride to love, the sword is strength and ownership of heart, passion can overtake the emotions and cause a disturbance of balance. In the end they can’t help but be proud of one another’s strength. For even if they face each other as enemies, there would be no better opponent to die for. They’re eyes, filled with fire hide the swollen pain and want for peace. peace is a heavy burden in their world, it’s a relax mind state, for the enemy to win.


It is a balmy 108 degrees on this flawlessly clear and sunny, July afternoon. The humidity is high, winds are steady.…. “…Airport Tower, Airport Tower. Please clear Velocity Flight 777 for takeoff. Flight 777; this is the Lakewood Airport Tower - you are now cleared for take-off. Throttle down – we are in the air, climbing at a high altitude… But – wait? - We have begun losing power?! Velocity Models are aboard! Emergency landing requested! I repeat – I repeat! Emergency landing requested!! We are going down! I repeat, Velocity Flight 777, is—going down! WE- ARE-GOING---DOWN!!!” …Welcome to “Velocity”! The very definition of “velocity” is defined as “the speed of a given object, in a given direction”. When hifashion meets a literal airfield runway, “Velocity: The Photoshoot” transports the viewer even higher and higher to another level! The speed of style in this case, provides the viewer with an unbiased, unique perspective of transition art - fused with airport parachute styling, cutting edge photography & couture tailoring. An unmatched team inclusive of ‘pilot, co-pilot, stewardesses and passengers’ were assembled to convey the symbolism represented in “Velocity”. Although most little

girls may dream of soaring high in chic elegance, all while cleverly adorned in oversized stilettos and crystal baubles; …it is also a goal of the modern fashionista to take her style-game to the next level. And ‘Next-level’, is exactly where “Velocity” takes you! As it encompasses couture evening wear bursting with avant-garde looks; comparable to the seasoned goddess and evening gown drama often witnessed on a Paris runway. To add to the spectacular that is “Velocity”, some pieces were paired with custom and/or reworked hat designs, as presented by House of GoGé. A magnum opus, “Velocity” was one, where a collective of saturated looks (coifed in a beautifully distinct avant-garde twist), plentiful chiffon, graceful satin and floral grandeur – all effortlessly unified on the tarmac, to bring ethereal life to the lens. “Velocity” shifts speed frame-by-frame with a focus on the ‘embellished look’. It provides an insider ‘superhero’ vantage point to the inner strength and power, as embodied by all women. An alternative scenario to the typical photo imagery narrative, “Velocity: The Photoshoot” is sure to leave you breathless and anticipating your next flight!
