Old Westbury Gardens

Curious how we picked our the location for our gorgeous Spring 2011 Lookbook? Our Art Buyer Alex shares the story.

We took a location scouting trip out to Old Westbury Gardens in Long Island, looking for an area with huge boxwoods and a garden area to fit the creative inspiration of the shoot. We walked through the property and turned the corner around the rose garden and found the most amazing spot that you see on the cover. It looked like it was straight out of Alice in Wonderland……a gorgeous path as far as the eye could see, covered in leaves, dappled in sunlight and shadows cast by the trees arching overhead. It was unbelievably beautiful! We ended up shooting there almost the entire day!
