Erin Tufts and Cassie Conrad are the masterminds behind the up-and-coming line, Nire`. While Ms. Tufts designs the clothing, Ms. Conrad acts as the main stylist. Together, they run a business that is based on outfitting real women who like to look fashionable but dress comfortably! They describe this coming season's creations as "chic, with edge!" And once I hear "edge," you knowwww I'm in!
I was lucky enough to not only meet the designer, Erin, a Louisiana native whom now resides in NYC, but she asked me to help style and to model for the Nire` website and look book! We had a BLAST shooting and I can tell you first hand that the clothes are AMAZING! Not only does the Nire` Collection exemplify practical and super, super comfortable clothing, but each piece for Summer 2010 is fun and totallllly current.
Here's a little "behind the scenes" look at the shoot:
