Fashion Designer Crystal Cooper

Local fashion designer, Crystal Cooper, makes custom designer dresses and red carpet remakes for a fraction of the cost. Her company is Inspired Life By Crystal; a truly talented seamstress with an eye for detail. I was very lucky to be invited by Darlene Smith, to the closed set photo shoot for her clothing line debut.

Darlene suggested this photo shoot and coordinated the entire event seamlessly. She is a local Hair Stylist and Kevin Murphy Gold Key Educator. She is one of a few that carry the complete line of products. You can find her studio "Beauty by Darlene", inside Mosaic Salon Studios to purchase any product, including, Color Bug, the latest temporary hair coloring craze. The updos were all done without pins or rubber bands. Darlene has a unique method to make an updo "do what it do".

Sarah Dial, owner and photographer at Dial Photography was amazing!
