Blending Art and Fashion
The impressions that art pieces can leave on us often vary through our own experiences. We were able to look outside of the box in terms of interpretation by implementing fashion pieces and real-life expressions to make the art pieces come alive.
Randy Jacobs, Frisco Fine Art Gallery
Frisco Fine Art Gallery was the venue chosen for this shoot. Randy is the owner of Frisco Fine Art Gallery and is proud to call Frisco his home. He has always had a heart for giving back. He recently made the decision to provide Frisco Fine Art Gallery as an event venue and has seen tremendous growth, as well as an overwhelmingly positive response from the community of Frisco.
The minute you step inside Frisco Fine Arts, you will be surrounded by gorgeous art pieces that span across all different types of mediums. They can become standout pieces for any home or office space. The Frisco Fine Art Gallery is centered in the heart of downtown Frisco and is a great place to hold corporate events, receptions, meetings, socials, wine tastings, birthday parties and more! Come visit the gallery located at 7227 Main St., Unit 400, Frisco.
The “real-life” person in this shoot was our model, Avery Stevens. Avery, a model, dancer and actress, has been working at her craft since her earlier years. She can be seen modeling for various clothing lines. She is active in hip-hop and contemporary dance. She helped us make these art pieces at the Gallery 8680 come to life through modeling various expressions and fashion styles. For more information on Avery, follow her Instagram @AveryAnnStevens.
Sunny Paige Boutique
Avery’s clothing and accessories were chosen from the clothing boutique, Sunny Paige. It is located in the heart of Frisco’s Rail District on Main Street. Residents can find a clothing boutique that stands by its name. Once you enter the doors, you will feel as though you walked into sunshine.
