JUANA BURGA for NEW YORK MODEL MANAGEMENT
Welcome to el Circo Mágico: an eccentric dreamworld where colors are vibrant, inspiration is abundant, and imagination becomes a reality.
Inspiration for the Resort Swim `15 Collection stems from the beautiful people, culture, colors, textiles and landscape of Guatemala, all of which Mara fell in love with during a recent trip to the rainbow land.
Searching for a suitable shoot location that would measure up to the diversity of Guatemala wasn’t easy. Luckily, where one rainbow road ends another begins. Enter this psychedelic, next level, 16-acre art home in the backwoods of Cottekill, NY, the work of owners and artists Kat O’Sullivan and Mason Brown, that embodies the spirit that Mara had fallen so in love with in Guatemala.
This “fun house” of color, humor and spirituality was the perfect setting for Mara’s circus-themed “CIRCO MÁGICO” shoot. The house was complete with two vibrantly hand-painted school buses with vivid renderings of octopi, eyes, morphs of Wonder Woman and the Venus Di Milo, and written phrases such as “stay hungry, stay foolish.”
If we couldn’t fly to the rainbow people in Guatemala, at least we could drive to them in Woodstock…
