We had so much fun shooting Runaway Circus in the streets of Tribeca with photog extraordinaire Stephanie McNiel, super stylist Lynn Levoy and uber groomer Vicktor Stevenson. We knew we needed to focus on the animals, and pops of color for this photoshoot featured in Babesta Beat. The clothes of the season had so many species, and we couldn’t resist highlighting our faves from brands like Mini Rodini (like that bear sweatshirt! the penguin jacket!) and PopUpShop (that Cheetah dress is off the hook and there’s a zip up hoodie as well!), Quinn and Fox (that bunny sweatshirt and bear sweats!) and of course some goodies from Munster Kids (hippy pandas, anyone) and Tootsa MacGinty (3-D interactive pandas). We imagined the city as a circus and collected some fun props like masks and inflatable zebras and set off on a gorgeous May day. There were a lot of stares, of course, as we were a conspicuous bunch! In the most quintessential Tribeca shot (the little bridge on Staple Street), we were vying for position with a bride & groom who were also keen on snapping some shots in the hip little street (we were there first, but we gave them the floor, knowing they had to get to the church on time!) Hope you enjoy the result!
