Downtown Tampa's dazzling sun and scenery were the backdrops for this energetic "Street Style" shoot. Designer and Model, Coco, showcasing a few of her unique creations, enjoys the cool breeze on Tampa's newly renovated Riverwalk. Coco, who recently returned from Paris, asked Lillian Ashe Photography to help launch her small but growing fashion business here in the US.
With her team in tow, second shooter, Bill Rivera, and lighting assistant, Mike, joined Lillian Ashe for this eventful and crazy fun ride through the streets of Tampa. The Grand Hyatt, Rivergate Tower and University of Tampa's Plant Hall all contributed to the high fashion feel of the day. Not to mention, the covert incident with the nice security guard who asked to remain nameless as he let us stage Coco on some of the building's more avant-garde furnishings.
These, of course, are just some of what was captured behind the scenes by Bill Rivera. Not pictured here, however, are the myriad of cellphone shots taken by enthusiastic onlookers who seemed to be clambering for autographs from Coco and Lillian Ashe.
