It was an unforgettable experience in collaborating to create Conrado’s first lookbook. In order to find success, we as a team were driven by the ideas of creativity, fun, and love. It was a true pleasure to work so close with a clothing designer and realize that we could both speak the language of aesthetics. I asked Angela to share inspirations to help us build a path to her imagination. We found perfect locations which speak to the lifestyle of Martha’s Vineyard as well as beautiful and artistic models. My goal as the photographer was to create the feel of a local vineyard fashion look and connect it to the designer’s concept, “City to the Beach”.
Angela Sison is the founder of CONRADO and has worked in the fashion industry in New York, California, and Paris. Conrado was her grandfather’s name and her upbringing in fashion and brought to life this brand. Angela grew up in the Philippines in her family’s textile factory and some of her earliest memories are of counting buttons and trimming thread. Angela treasures her upbringing in the Philippines and spent a lot of time thinking about how people would go from the city to the beach wearing the same clothes. She wanted pieces that transitioned without having to think. Pieces that are simple and sophisticated. Pieces that are seamless
