Interview with Designer Alex Chandoha

Working With A Wardrobe Designer

Today we did a photoshoot with a custom designed, high fashion dress with a 25ft long train. We worked closely with a stylist, who then worked with Alex, to make the whole thing happen. In this episode he’ll share what photo shoots are like from his point of view and some advice for collaborating with designers for your own images.

Many designers are willing to work with you and your budget because they can use the photos in their portfolio as well. Try doing a search in your city and contacting a few!
