I have always loved styling my own work and lookbooks, but working with Milkhaus Designs to style her goods was so much MORE fun! I never imagined I could do it for makers, but I have to say I cant wait for the opportunity to do it again. Hanah and I both really loved this project. I didn't even mind modeling for this shoot; it was really fun to be in front of the camera for someone elses work. The hard part was not taking every bag home with me.. particularly her newest design, the Backpack.
For this shoot Bethany had a vision of really telling a story, a story about the women who owns one of her bags. Bethany's bags are made for life, travel, shopping, work you name it. They are made for using and looking effortlessly stylish at the same time. We shot simple 'layflats' where the bags are shot on a clean white background; then we took the bags out around town to shot a day in the life of a Milkhaus bag!

The Milkhaus Design aesthetic is simple, modern and classic. Bethany’s love for the beauty of natural materials is balanced with her love of vibrant and bold colors. All Milkhaus Design screen printed products are printed with Bethany’s original designs that are inspired by the everyday details she notices as she goes about her day.
