I was just going though old PDF’s and this mock-up popped up that I had emailed the editor with wardrobe credits. The Paramount Theater was the most fitting place to shoot the 25th Anniversary of the release of Nirvana’s Nevermind album. Seattle magazine wanted to pay tribute by shooting the September fashion feature at the Paramount Theater which was where Nirvana had the release party for the Nevermind album. Since moving to Seattle I have always wanted to do a grunge shoot. I pulled the coolest 90’s inspired clothing all of which got x-nayed from my line up. The roster of stores & brands that had to be featured in this fashion story took over the editorial. Kind of a bummer for me, but at the end of the day the client was happy and I got to do a Seattle “grunge” type shoot. My favorite part of shooting was being able to roam around the empty Paramount Theater.
The Nevermind album was in part responsible and credited for bringing both alternative rock and grunge to a large, mainstream audience, and has been ranked highly on lists of the greatest albums of all time by publications such as Rolling Stones and Time. All I know is when I think of Nirvana I think of Seattle.
