BY ORDER OF CARLA JIAN.
As a wife, mother, AND health/fitness teacher, Carla Jian is the living embodiment of femininity and strength. I first discovered her through her beautiful Instagram feed, after she left a complimentary and encouraging comment on my own. A few weeks later we met in person, and our energies collided in the most serendipitous way: I had been searching for a new context in which to feature THE ORDER, and she thought some of my pieces would lend themselves perfectly to yoga. Add to the mix our mutual friend/insanely talented makeup artist Stephanie VanHazebroeck (her work is GORGEOUS!) and photographer Hallie Duesenberg (with whom we'd both been wanting to shoot- she's so good at capturing people in their element!), and I had a killer trifecta of Chicago talent to work with. These women joined forces to further their mission of empowering the women around them in every way, and I couldn't be more proud to share what we created together. A few favorites from our shoot are below: THE ORDER, by order of Carla Jian.
