Hi there!

I recently had the opportunity to model for Tasch NYC's Fall 2016 look book shoot and fashion show just following fall fashion week this Spring and it was so much fun! The two looks you see above are part of the newest line, of which we are getting a sneak peek since it is brand new clothing soon to be available for ordering. 

I really loved the sequin detail on the dress as well as the see through mesh front and back design making the dress appear to be strapless. The outdoor sunset in Central Park made for a beautiful setting to shoot the purple with gold sparkle accents as well, as you can see below with the sun setting on the water.  This plum hue is so perfect for spring or fall!

Tasch NYC is a New York based contemporary luxury womenswear brand made for women by women in New York with love.  Tasch herself beyond being very talented is also petite, so her clothes are made with petite figures in mind too, something I find to be lacking in luxury contemporary womenswear. Clothes are made to order right here in NYC.  I love buying local!
