Matchbook Magazine – July issue
July 3, 2012
The other week I photographed the lovely and talented Marie Whitney and Erin Gates for a feature in Matchbook Magazine. The article highlights their newest clothing and charitable venture Two Penny Blue. As they describe it, “Two Penny Blue is a collection of luxury jackets and blazers that combines thoughtful classic design with fine fabrics.” On top of designing some great fitting blazers in some killer fabrics, with every jacket purchased, they donate a school uniform to a girl in need in Africa. Although school is often free, each year millions of girls are denied the opportunity to attend school because they can not afford a school uniform. Looking great and helping to empower girls, what is better than that?!?! I had a great time photographing them and tried on a few blazers myself. They are fabulous! Below is the spread from the issue, but go to page 72 to read the full feature.
P.S. See if you can spot the peonies my intern found and I blogged about last week.
As a thank you, I was lucky enough to get my hands on this fantastic mint number. It runs very true to size and fits like a dream.
