Nothing beats a Spotlight shoot during one of the hottest days in NYC, and we still managed to get some great photos! Sugar Vendil, a passionate classical music artist and fashionista, created The Nouveau Classical Project to exhibit a concert series in a new and refreshing way: fusing fashion and classical music. Typically held at a gallery-type venue, the musicians are dressed by up-and-coming designers with past contributers such as Debut, Nicholas K, and coh. N. Already with several successful performances, Sugar manages to make the classical concert a fun event with hopes to “promote it to a hip, downtown crowd.” To my interest, I asked how her parents came about her name, which she replied that it was a fusion between her parents’ names: Suzanne and Edgar. I thought to myself how intriguing that was and perhaps she born with the talent to combine these two arts together.
