With the snow piled two-feet high in mid-February, our spring fashion shoot was forced to come in from the cold. We found a warm, chic location in the Canfield Building, a 120-year-old warehouse in Midtown Kingston that architect Scott Dutton has rehabilitated from an extreme state of disrepair since he bought the building in 2000. Dutton and his family live in a duplex loft apartment in the building, the site of our shoot. Dutton, like photographer Kelly Merchant and models Aemen Bell and Luis Mojica, is part of the Hive Event Collective (Hiveevent.com), a new collaboration of local professionals creating boutique-sized events with an artisanal flair. The Canfield Building will be one of the Hive's featured event settings.
The clothing for our spring shoot was furnished by de Marchin in Hudson, D'vash in Woodstock, Evoke Style in Rhinebeck, Gwenno James in Beacon, and Zephyr in Rhinebeck. Lexi Damico was the make-up artist. Erin Scoville provided the hair styling. To see more images from our spring fashion shoot, visit Chronogram.com.
