Summertime Sizzle

June Fashion

Our June fashion is set in a dreamy location right where Midtown meets Downtown — the Annesdale Mansion. This Italianate beauty was built in 1855, and has been passed down through generations. It was recently purchased by Ken Robison, who has been restoring it for the past two years. While his intention is to convert it into a grand event location, we were able to spend the day shooting fashion in its various spaces before the facility opens to the public. In a nod to our more recent modern culture, our model, Selena, is the daughter of our city’s very own Tigers and NBA star, Lorenzen Wright. 

Selena rocks some of the best spring fashion around in this spectacular antebellum setting.
