As it pertains to art, beauty oftentimes is at the core of the creative process. Yet, only in its interpretation does one discover its true appeal. Ergo, "beauty" truly is in the eye of the beholder. This month's shoot was infinitely interesting. We were transfixed by a sublime location — a hidden sanctuary comprised of five art bungalows, each a historic home restored to its original humble state, then enchantingly embellished by artist Salle Werner-Vaughn. We fell down the rabbit hole into an alternate reality, where it could not be determined what was more beautiful: the clothes, the twin models or the artful follies themselves. OBSERVE. AND LOSE YOURSELF — IF ONLY FOR A MOMENT.
