"Close your eyes and surrender to your darkest dreams
Purge your thoughts of the life you knew before
Close your eyes, let your spirit start to soar
And you'll live as you've never lived before"
- Music of the Night, Phantom of the Opera
When Alisha Khan Photography asked me to style a mini photo session with a model in a black velvet & lace gown from Georgie Girl Vintage, using a red lounge chair as inspiration...I knew an Opera House theme was the way to go! Phantom of the Opera has always been a production close to my heart; the story, the mystery, and the stunning set designs lure you into the rhythm of the songs like a lucid dream. With some of the Mosaic Party props - like our vintage 1940's tabletop lamp post, ornate brass easel, carved pillars, and luxurious gold knotted fabric - the layers of rich red rose arrangements created by Tangerine Orchid established an opulent setting for our Shine Model, Michelle to show off the most amazing makeup artistry from Amana Beauty. Thank you to all our amazing vendors for coming on board with this mini shoot - and to Alisha Khan for the keen eye and fabulous photographic imagery.
