STORY - The Actors Studio


Aim

To translate into a fashion narrative the dynamic of Lee Strasberg's Actors Studio in 1950's New York.

Process

A functioning recital hall was found complete with stage, vintage furniture and well scoured floorboards.
Local and international designers were carefully selected for their classic fabrications and retro details. This looks of the working actor's wardrobe evolved into the parred down aesthetic present. The result was a modern take on the aesthetics, silhouettes and energy of, among others, Marilyn Monroe, James Dean and Sidney Poitier.

DIRECTOR

Janai
Anselmi


Janai started out as sculptress creating art out of clothing, furniture and bric-a-brac and photographing her creations. This led to wardrobe and costume for Film and Television before styling commercials and editorial shoots. Her greatest satisfaction comes from creating the entire image, from set to props and wardrobe for advertising or art direction and fashion styling for editorial shoots. Her quirky taste can be found across much of her work.

At the moment her favourite yoga pose is Crow (Bakasana) and she likes to wear all shades of blue or grey from head to toe. She aspires to do a one handed handstand, and has recently become a rock climbing and paddle boarding guru.

LEAD STYLIST

Jo
Ayling


Our resident songbird, Jo is responsible for most of the large scale projects we undertake. With a background in buying, merchandising, marketing and visual display, she decided having crossed the pond from London in 2008 that she needed to get her hands much dirtier. Her quick eye and boundless energy make her the perfect lead stylist. Her easy style lends itself to many briefs and her skills with character wardrobe and props undeniable. Jo can often be found with paintbrush in hand, rummaging through recycled goods or messing around with plaster cast or liquid nitrogen for still life projects or fine art photography.

Her favourite yoga pose is half moon (ardha chandrasana) or anything that involves being upsidedown.

STYLIST

Liz
Kavanagh


Liz joined the team in 2014. An experienced event stylist with a recent diploma in interior styling, her passion is all things interiors and exteriors, including a crazed love of rooftops!

She has worked overseas for most of her life in Japan, Europe and the US. Working as head hostess on yachts, this perhaps explains her obsession with seafoam (mint, for the non colour techs) and beachy, outdoor living.

Liz has project managed the building of super yachts in Italy, designing and overseeing the interior design of these vessels. Never without her trusty clipboard, her eye for detail, love of a challenge, and top organisational skills make her the perfect addition to the JAS team.

Her favourite yoga pose is cat pose (Marjariasana) but we reckon she’d prefer a surf board over any of that nonsense.
