Tight, fitted, and Suited… THE MAINE squeeze

It’s been one crazy June and I know I know I’ve been HORRIBLE at updating my blog, but great news is that I have soooo many exciting updates to share with you all. This past month I took on 2 new interns that have been devoutly helping the Chriselle INC. family grow! We’ve been working on magazine editorials, cover shoots, music videos, celebrities, and commercials! One of our most recent projects we worked on was styling the band The Maine, signed to the Warner Brothers record label. Not only did we style the boys but we also styled and created all the crazy characters in this video. With my dedicated and talented interns they put together AMAZING looks together for these out of the world characters..and you will know what I mean by CRAZY after the video gets released. The question was :  “What would rockstars wear to a funeral” The answer was: Dior Homme and J Lindberg suits.. Tight, Fitted, and Suited in Dior and J Lindberg suits.  THE MAINE squeeze Dressed in Dior Homme & J Lindberg suit with Ben Sherman kicks. Producer Justin Cronkite “High Fiving” it..we did it!Behind the scenes of “Insde of You” My assistants Christina and Patty hard at work, makin sure John is lookin fresh! Racks and Racks and Racks of clothing..the story of my life Second scene! Lovin John’s last outfit. cuss he’s rockin my hand made spiked mask. Our handmade spiked bullet mask. Last scene with Jared and Garrett…looking ummm quite silly? Here Garrett’s tie is “blowing away” with a piece of heavy wire underneath to create that effect. We absolutely cannot wait for this music video to be released and to share it with you all! For now make sure you check out The Maine and their catchy new song “Inside Of You” xxxx Chriselle
