Fabrics with pattern have a way of portraying beauty and elegance in a rather sophisticated way, in that it is admirable to see an individual wrapped up in the perfect combination of pattern fabrics with a touch of plain fabrics or other materials to create that perfect blend.

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO WORK WITH BEN BOND OF OAB PHOTOGRAPHY?
