SS14 Lookbook with KAREN DOOLITTLE
Magic Carpet Yoga Mats owner and designer Sophie Leininger shares personal behind the scenes accounts of MAGIC MAKING here on the blog!
I had so much fun shooting with Karen Doolittle this spring! Karen and I have been friends for sometime and it’s been a pleasure to fall in love with her photography over the years. Once we came to realize a collaboration was in order it was ON! Every step of planning the SS14 shoot with Karen was like discovering we shared one big silly creative brain. Her love for bright colors and knack for capturing tender human moments made her a perfect fit for the concept, and a true collaborator. And I’m not the only ones who think so: Instagram made her a suggested user earlier this year. (GO Karen!)
On board making our rainbow-boho-power-clash dreams a reality was Oakland hair/make-up/art legend Jenna Feldman, attributed with starting Rock Paper Scissors Collective, the earliest iterations of First Friday, and some of tUnE-yArDs finest looks. Jenna’s hair and make-up skills ruled and her chill personality kept us calm throughout the day.
We did the whole shoot chez our model, Sierra Delgado, whose color blocked attic space made for the perfect trippy yoga den. Sierra and her beau have sadly since left Oakland, and are now holding it down in Pioneer Town, CA (just outside of Joshua Tree National Park) with their vintage operation: Ramble On Vintage.
