Ed, words can’t describe how much we love you, and love working with you. Over the last year we’ve laughed, grown, oo-ed and ah-ed at your fantastic work, and it’s about time we thank you properly! You’ve become a staple here at Nous, and we can’t wait to see what the next year brings.
Here’s a time warp of Ed’s work with Nous, starting with Wase in November of 2013, all the way through today. Cheers to you, Ed.
We got such a great response from our last feature on the amazing artists that have been inspired by our girls to create really beautiful pieces of art that we decided to make this an ongoing thing. We’re going to continue to give shout outs to all of you who create art using our girls as muses. This time around we’d like to give major props to: @matt_smiley, @juliano_strino, @nickonken, @creativeseven, @unknown_x_artist, @niya_art, @bugiman, @rasfader, @xmariav, and @ruslan_mustapaev_. You guys rock!

Last week something super exciting happened: We had our first in-house casting in the Nous Fashion Den with our dear friends at Swell! As California girls, we can’t get enough of their huge selection of clothing and accessories for a surf-oriented lifestyle. I mean, we don’t actually surf or anything, but that doesn’t stop us from heading to Swell whenever we need to up our beach-attire game! Plus, they update their collection daily, which is an absolute must for true shop-aholics like us.
Part of the functionality of our new space is to be able to provide next-level services for our beloved clients, including in-house photoshoots and castings. Nous Fashion Den castings in particular are designed to be both a convenient and luxe experience for our clients.
As you can see here, the process begins with all of the girls gathered in our open call area.
One by one, they head into the next room for some one-on-one time with the client. In this case, the lovely Dana Wimberly from Swell‘s core team was there to greet the girls and get to know them a little better. Dana sat casually on our pretty little couch (complete with sparkly authentic Moroccan textiles that we just can’t get enough of) and interviewed each girl. From the same seat, she also had an unobstructed view of the studio area, so she could watch the girls model after speaking with them. Our Art Department Director and in-house photographer Ashley was right there to have the girls do a mock-ecomm shoot so that Dana could sit back, relax, and watch them do their thing. Fabulous!
When building the studio space, we brought in the expert opinion of one of our favorite photographers, Ed McGowan, to help us get the lighting just right. He did a fantastic job, look at how perfect these casting photos of the girls come out! Of course, for ultra-convenience, we made sure to give Dana a thumb drive with all of the images to take with her back to Swell HQ.
Thanks Swell, for testing out our new space with us! We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!
Go check out our Women’s Board to see the girls’ full portfolios.

We love this amazing new Lee campaign starring our model, Faith Picozzi. This surreal commercial reminds us of a dream sequence from a French film in the 60s. Spoiler alert, Faith wakes up from a dream in the end. We did some research and the song was composed by Lee specially for the commercial. Hit play and get ready to Move your Lee with Faith.
