Many incredibly talented ladies and one (incredibly out-numbered) man lent their hands to making this shoot a success. We were happy to include some familiar faces from our Fall 2011 Look Book: Annie Montgomery, the photographer then, is the model now.  Former behind-the-scenes photographer Anja Verdugo acted as lead photographer, models Consuelo Wise and Marika Emerson helped style along with last year’s stylists Brehan Todd and Jesseca McCloskey.  And of course, proprietress Cindy Rokoff furnished the incredible vintage goods, props and acted as Art Director.
