Etc.Pantoufle is a San Francisco based line of handmade clothing and accessories. I design and construct each unique piece by hand, often from recycled and vintage fabrics and notions.
Combined with my experience as a model, working with various photographers on the creative concepts behind our shoots, I bring my original designs and wardrobe experience to other models and photographers through Ect.Pantoufle Styling. On top of my own designs, I can provide a number of other looks and props to ensure that your shoot is styled to your needs and enhances the portfolios of everyone involved.
I can provide wardrobe and accessories for one or two models (aprox. 5 looks each) in exchange for shots of my designs, should I have any that need to be shot professionally.
I can provide wardrobe and accessories for up to four models (5 looks each), including any of my original designs. Depending on the number of models, distance, compensation, and whether or not someone has a car, I can also provide a number of props. I have an educational background in visual display, and a variety of props including vintage suitcases/hatboxes, fine art (large contemporary pieces), and assorted vintage/antique books, kitchenwares, and doo-dads. If there's something in particular that you're looking to use as a prop, let me know! There's a good chance I'll be able to find it at one of my local haunts and bribe the shop owners into letting us borrow it for the day
For trade shoots, models must provide shoes unless they are a size 7.5-9, in which case, what's mine is yours! (I am an 8/8.5, so sizing is approximate).
For paid shoots, I can source out shoes to be *carefully* used for the day of shooting. For this I require at least a few days notice, please.
Need styling for a paid shoot with no budget? Is your concept really, super awesome? If it's something I can get behind that will really expand my portfolio, drop me a line -- you never know... (Good examples = Vau De Vire Society type stuff, local art community oriented stuff, etc.)
