Jarrod Glaze makes beautiful clothes, there’s really no way around it, he’s an elegant man who makes beautiful clothes. I first learned about the line when Florent Belda, the head of Rep Mode, put the two of us in touch. Jarrod was in need of a photographer and I happened to be free that particular Sunday during fashion week. I was thrilled to get the email because not only do I love any opportunity to shoot, but because after doing a little research into the designer, the line, and the visual direction of the brand I felt that we could be a good match and that I could help him.
We shot the lookbook on the day of his presentation during New York Fashion Week, one by one as the different models were out of hair and makeup, dress and styled, they were sent downstairs from the backstage area to the room where the presentation was to be held so that we could shoot the lookbook.
