First “Official” Photo Shoot/ “4K Fox” Sweater

Well, Marc Smollin Designs Look Book #1 is on it’s way, as we wrapped up an incredible photo shoot with photographer Irene De La Selva.


We were joined by four incredible models, each of whom sported two MSD looks.  My amazing friend, Fabiana Vardaro, generously donated her stylist talents to the project (along with rounding up the photographer, models, and make-up artist!).  We stomped around Kreuzberg, Berlin for a few hours and took some great shots.

A few days before the shoot, I decided to make a boat-neck sweater for one of the girls to wear.  Using more than 4,000 yards of Habu silk, I knit non-stop for 48 hours to create the “4K Fox.”  Here are a couple amateur photos I nabbed with my iPhone during the photo shoot.

All in all it was a fantastic experience.  I am so thankful to everyone involved, and I can’t wait to do more of these shoots in the future!
