The first time I spoke to Mary Frances, I knew I was going to like her. A veteran in the fashion world, MF is a ball of energy, enthusiasm, and fun! Not unlike her product, Mary finds the humor in life and the beauty in design, her creations and aesthetics are like no other. Mary Frances designs for the exceptional woman; a woman who is successful, stylish, sassy, unique, and fun at heart. When Mary Kinney of Sister Brother and I came aboard, we wanted to bring a new look to MF to further along her audience span and the identity of the brand. We created a story based on two “real” fashionistas, who come together in the name of fashion and handbags. Yes, our gorgeous and ever-so-styling Mary was a model on this one too and the divine, Sandy Mandel of The results… breathtaking and  oh-so fun. And we cannot thank our amazing team and vendors as well. We couldn’t have done it without you, special thanks to…Kimberly Kalmbach of Bloomers Floral for set design and floral, Liz Bagatelos for makeup, Irminia Martinez for hair, and for the fashion: Christopher Collins Collection, Julius Clothing, SB Vintage Archive, Madam Butterfly, Franco Ferrini, and Hamilton Jewelers. And the biggest thank you to the talented and ever-so-sweet Miss Claudia Castillo Ross of Cross Marketing for allowing us to photograph in her unbelievably gorgeous home.
