Afterwards, I have to painstakingly go through each of those photographs and decide which of those I feel come across artistic enough to meet "URBAN ART BY NURI" standards. Not many. My standards for fashion and art are very high, thanks to my days of being around the best at Neiman Marcus, where I worked for seven years in various capacities. In order for a photo to speak to me as art there has to be a certain element to it. Arguably, one cannot r…

Ellen Wise NYC-ASE Feature for Fashion Week

Ellen Wise Couture Fashion Week Show SS19
Crowne Plaza Hotel Featured Designer: Ellen Wise Couture
Show: Couture Fashion Week SS19
Venue: Crowne Plaza Hotel, Times Square Manhattan






The Ellen Wise collection on display for the SS19 Couture Fashion Week was one of our favorites and definitely gets a nod as one of this year's NYC-ASE "Fashion Week MVP". The collection was elegant, classy, and stylish in every aspect. One could most certainly describe these designs as "timeless"
The models for Ellen Wise did an excellent job of working both sides of the media riser to ensure the photographers were getting a clear shot. These were by far some of the best shots of the evening given the location from where we were photographing.
