It's 6am here in Paris and the benefits of jet lag are revealing themselves. Sitting in the dark only makes the sounds of the streets downstairs even clearer; men and women setting up for the Saturday markets later in the morning. I am so excited to be here in Paris to shoot with ForMe - an incredible feat for the entire team and a campaign that will be unforgettable for all of us - especially Patti and I! I'm also excited to show you what I have planned for my personal stay in Paris, featuring some local photographers who I am itching to shoot with and have always admired from afar (i.e Instagram). I also brought a little bit of the Philippines here with me but before I spill everything I have planned, here is a shoot I did in Brooklyn at the famed Dumbo rainbow wall with talented pinoy photographer Joseph Padiernos. He has a heart for photography and as soon as I saw his instagram in my comment field I immediately became a fan! I touched base with him when we were in New York and met for the first time a few days later. It's very important to Echo and I to share up and coming Filipino talent and although we didn't have much time, he happily shot us both in about an hour and a half. The result is something refreshingly different from what you see here on Miss Jones, but just as colourful.
