Working Class Magic

June 29, 2011

Have you ever seen so much JDS jewelry in an editorial!? Very excited to announce Working Class Magazine’s Summer issue, which chose lil me for its cover story, has launched! It’s such a huge honor to be a part of this magazine and to be the cover feature of The Om Issue is beyond words. A massive thanks to Marcel Dagenais, editor in chief, for asking me to come along on this rad project. I had the pleasure of styling this shoot with Marcel, while Susie Sobol rocked the makeup for our model Yael Greenberg, with this incredible set design created by the ladies of Domestic Construction. These gorgeous photos were shot by the super talented, Tracy Morford. This woman knows how to take a photograph. The story itself was written by my friend Danielle Sipple, whose words flow from her with such beauty, it’s astounding. She flew all the way from Vancouver BC to spend a week with me in NYC to write this story. We wandered through the streets of the fashion district together, soaking in the beauty of my muse, Gotham City, both us of reveling in her majesty. You can read her piece about me and Jené DeSpain Jewelry on the Working Class Magazine website, and scope the entire issue online. – I can’t recommend it enough.
