The land of nod

The stars have aligned and I’ve been able to work as the wardrobe stylist on the past couple of catalogs for The Land of Nod!!!  I worked with them many moons ago (see HERE), and it’s so wonderful to be part of their super creative team again.  I’ve been dressing their kiddos and having a ball.  I mean what better job can you have as a new mom?!!  Here are some of my favorites from a recent catalog.

It’s interesting going back to a project after some time away.  I’ve definitely evolved as a wardrobe stylist since my last catalog (we’re always learning/evolving, right?  Or what’s the point!) and have found this to be a great creative outlet in between all of the advertising campaigns.  I love that when I bring a kid to set I may receive a request to mess them up a bit.  Normally, I get requests to make cotton shirts wrinkle-free so that the talent looks like they are wearing folded sheets of foam core.  At Land of Nod I get to introduce loud colors and patterns, play with fit and shapes, it’s truly a joy to be part of.
