The Idea

The 2013 Web Covers are a way to shed some light on who the team of LOECalgary is – the everyday ladies who are passionate about the fields they are in.

Aman stepped up to the plate for the month of April and played the role of model and stage designer for this month’s web cover. We wanted to showcase Aman’s skills in fashion and interior design, so she created a beautiful set using her collection of stunning outfits and interesting home decor.

The Model/Stage Designer

Aman Dhalay - Home section EditorCan you believe the space for the photo shoot is actually an unfinished basement?

I wanted to have a set with both a fashion and interior feel. I went with black as my main color and added elements that best represent both my brands as well as myself.

Both a beautiful living space and a fine piece of clothing require the same amount of creativity and attention to detail. One of the sets symbolized the Javeda fashion brand, featuring both fusion and traditional couture.

The other set used mixed pieces of furniture and featured my chandelier draping over Barcelona chairs, which illustrated the creativity and attention to detail that Javeda Interiors embodies.

The Hairstylist

Sandy HuynhThe look for the hair was simple, classy, and timeless.

Gorgeous curls flowing down Aman’s face made her look sophisticated and gave an approachable charm to her.

The Makeup Artist

Beauty Editor - Amilee HagonThe makeup I chose for Aman was worked around what she wanted – a healthy natural look with just an edge of color to tie in the uniqueness that is expressed in her personality and creativity.
