GEORGETOWN, Washington, D.C. — A few months ago I received an email from Arti Upadhyay, owner and designer of Neuaura Shoes, saying that she’d like for me to shoot her Fall/Winter shoe collection. Wow, just the opportunity I was praying for! We played a little phone tag, but we eventually agreed to work together.
Arti is making quite a name for herself in the Vegan fashion scene. As many of you may know, Vegan fashion wear eliminates the use of animal products. Period. That means end-to-end–yes even the factory in Brazil is Vegan-approved–no animals were harmed during the manufacturing of Neuaura products!
A few weeks after our conversation, I received the samples in a huge, worn box. I could tell this guy had made it’s rounds with FedEx; turns out the collection was being featured in various fashion articles including The Wall Street Journal. I decided to take the collection down to Georgetown to give me a quasi-city feel. The Washington, DC area isn’t know for huge skyscrapers or that New York hustle, so I’d have to fudge the L&F with tight shots and editing.
