I have known Julia Chesky since we were sophomores at Parsons, while she was studying in the photography department. Julia's main focus is fashion photography, and her love of window shopping has been meticulously documented with her now 3-years running online series, "Modelizing." Julia has made the art of window displays and visual merchandising into a kind of science, breaking down their formulaic creativity bit by bit. Her concept is obviously a winner; recently, knock-off window photographers keep popping up left and right - but few can compete in quality, consistency, and thoroughness.
Julia's exclusive look at the new Lanvin boutique.
The Original Hipster." Whether you love or hate the concept (yes, it's ripe for debate on materialism and classism), it's hard to deny how beautiful her photography is.
AND! As a gift from Julia to me, and me to you: some exclusive, never-before-seen Modelizing shots. Check Julia's blog next week to see more.
Especially for those of you who live outside of New York City, her blog is really a treat. She window shops all the best stores, so you don't have to.
