Client feature – New York fashion designer Lee Anderson

Posted in Behind the scenes, Comings and goings, commercial photography, Diary, Fashion, Photography, Portrait, Work with tags , , , , on April 22, 2014 by erichason

Lee Anderson is a custom couture fashion designer in Manhattan.

I have been photographing her designs going on ten years. Lee sells custom garments soley out of her Lexington Avenue shop. Her loyal clientele appreciate her fearless aesthetic using bold colors, strong patterns, rich texture, and wonderful silhouettes to create both classic and whimsical fashion for every body type. Her husband and partner Nick Angelakis takes care of production and the business end and daughter Kyra helps manage the main store and outlet across Lexington Ave.

I love working with Lee. The photo shoot is always elegant and fun. The first time I worked with her I found myself pulling a stuffed, mounted trophy fish off the studio wall as a prop.

Here are some photographs I took of Lee, Nick and their staff at the Upper East Side shop and their Garment Center factory.
Also attaching her bio at the end of the post. Later this week I will share some photos we have created together.

Lee Anderson had already garnered a reputation for creating custom made couture clothing that embraces chromatic luxury in world renown fabrics when she established her design business in 1980 in a townhouse just off Madison Avenue in New York City. Lee graduated from the Traphagen School of Design, founded in the 1920s by Ethel Traphagan. The school was known for its technical orientation of the art of fashion design, offering courses in pattern-making and drafting. Although the school closed its doors in the early 1990s, such fashion icons as Geoffrey Beene, James Galanos, Mary McFadden, John Kloss, Christos Yiannakou and Franklin Rowe are among its alumni.

After being introduced to Seventh Avenue by Ralph Lauren, Lee worked as a design assistant to legends John Kloss (a fellow Traphagen alumnus), most famous for designing a bra that appeared not to exist in 1974 for Lily of France and Herbert Kasper for Joan Leslie. Kasper made his name as a designer by working for Joan Leslie from 1963 to 1985, becoming vice president of the company in 1980 and creating high fashion looks that reflected trends but were commercial and wearable.

Soon after striking out on her own, Lee Anderson’s collection was featured at Barney’s New York, Bergdorf Goodman and other fine specialty stores in the U.S. Today, the designer dedicates herself to her signature couture collection and special New York clientele. She continues to create clothing that embraces chromatic luxury using the most extraordinary and researched fabrics of the world, including iridescent taffetas, brocades, hand fringed British district checks and Celtic tweeds.

Lee Anderson Couture caters to a clientele who share her love for the highest pinnacle in luxury fashion.

Beauty photography, behind the scenes

Posted in Beauty, Behind the scenes, Comings and goings, commercial photography, Editorial, Fashion, hair, makeup, People I like, Photography, Work with tags , , , , , , , , , , on April 21, 2014 by erichason

I spent a beautiful NYC spring day in my studio with the talented makeup artist and hair stylist Tom Venditelli of Agency Gerard and manicurist Naoko Saita

Creating Beauty Images For Our Portfolios.

Natural makeup, natural hair, clean manicure and soft lighting along with Brazilian beauty Kelie Santos (DNA) and the equally lovely Jandra D (Next).

It was a fun, easy day, low pressure, hair flying in the wind, making beautiful photos and listening to great music.

My favorite track of the day was Vavava Voom by 70’s glam rocker Brett Smiley.

Here are some behind the scenes photos to whet my appetite to share the final images!  Kelie is being primped by Tom on set.  Jandra is doing her “Cousin It” imitation making sure her hair is voluminous and loose.

Ran into neighbors and close friends Maruchi Santana and John Parham.  Check out their branding firm Parham Santana.  Super creative people.  Maruchi has an amazing aesthetic and sense of color, John is always ready to share his latests cocktail recipe.

I digress, if you are in traveling distance to the great state of Brooklyn, go see this show!!!

Not Beauty or Fashion photography but…

When the worlds greatest dentist

asks you to take photos for his website, you put fashion, beauty, and everything else on hold and head to the Bronx.

Dr. Robert Steinberger, East Tremont Dental, has been my dentist for longer than I care to admit. Throggs Neck is not exactly convenient to my home in Brooklyn, but he is well worth the trip. I have recommended him to friends and family in Manhattan, Connecticut and New Jersey who faithfully flock to the Boogie Down for their bi-annual checkups. He is that good! Dr. Steinberger originally hails from Brooklyn and has never forgotten his roots. He is honest, caring, smart, and has mad dental skillz. In the unlikely event that I ever move to Alaska, I will still have my teeth cleaned just north of the Whitestone Bridge.

Here are a few photographs I shot of the Doc, not fashion photography, but a thing of beauty.

Looking forward to seeing them up on his website!
