Last Friday for l'étoile's MNfashion event "Imagination Mechanism," our staff took on a unique challenge. The party was a celebration of the creative process, so guests were invited to watch a photo shoot as it took place in one of the Eitel Building's gorgeous apartments, then the entire post-production process (re-touching, layout design, etc.) was projected to give attendants an insider's view of how a fashion editorial is created. So yes, we styled and produced a photo shoot, re-touched the images, and designed a layout all in one evening. If there is ever a Project Runway-style fashion editorial competition, I'm pretty sure the l'étoile staff could easy handle whatever challenges they threw our way.
