About Me

*I also offer complete hair and makeup styling*

How to work with me:
1. rent a piece from me
2. hire me to come style your shoot
3. hire me to make a piece for you or your project.

I cannot work for free:
my pieces are elaborate, time consuming, and expensive to make and as a photographer I do not need portfolio images. *Will consider a barter or rate reduction for antiques, vintage clothes, photo equipment, travel expenses, studio/location access, printing/framing, etc.

       This is the design portfolio of photographer Rana X. - MM # 1926


       ***please read the following before contacting me!***


If you would like to shoot with an available existing garment in my collection my rental fees start at $20 (plus shipping) and go up from there.
    Pieces can be shipped if handled in a careful, respectful, and timely manner - all shipping costs must be paid both ways. Certain pieces may require a refundable deposit as well.
    **Please Note: Many of the pieces in my portfolio are available for rent or purchase but a number of then are custom made pieces and are unavailable or privately owned: rental pieces are labelled as such here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/ranax/sets … 929337916/  **


If you would like me to make & provide a NEW piece for a specific purpose/shoot/concept/theme etc. but you are not able or not interested in purchasing the piece afterward I do offer reduced rates. Commissioned avant garde/gown/costume pieces start at $100 (to offset the prices of fabric & materials) and go up from there depending on what is requested. Fee includes on set styling by myself if within a reasonable distance.


I am available for hire to make custom, one of a kind, handmade garments. I have a particular soft spot for avant garde gowns with long trains that are very costume in nature. I enjoy using interesting construction and finishing methods and often incorporate ties, grommets, snaps, hooks, lacing, etc. making the pieces somewhat adjustable especially if the client is not local and fittings are not an option.
    The long gowns in my portfolio often take well over 40 hours a piece to make and hand finish. No two will ever be alike, I do not typically use patterns, I drape and build on a dressform. For corset I use a number of altered historical patterns (both over and underbust) that I embellish and hand bone and grommet.
    To have a piece custom made I need accurate measurements, a deposit for the purchase of fabrics, and 4 to 6 weeks turnaround time. Please message me for more info or for a quote.

         4. TO HIRE ME AS A STYLIST:

I am also available to come to your shoot or event with a collection of handmade, bought, and vintage pieces and help style and dress models. Can also provide model coaching, art direction, and some light/basis MU and hair styling as well as photo/technical assistance on set (I am primarily a photog smile I have competitive hourly rates for my services that depend on availability and travel costs.

about me:
I grew up around women that sew going back 4 generation of seamstresses. I began making my own dresses as a way to better control and finetune the details of my conceptual shoots. I am just now beginning to have other brilliant people photograph my designs and will  be greatly expanding my fashion design portfolio in the next year or two. I do not work with non faux fur or leather
