New York based photographer, actress and model, Sasha Frolova recently ventured out to Texas for a photo project with the Ready to Wear Marc Jacobs Spring Summer 2018 Collection with a very interesting theme in mind. She set out to photograph “real people”. A concept that is most mind boggling to Frolova as she mentioned in her article in I-D Vice where she published the photos as “a term that has always made me chuckle and cringe at the implication that models are therefore fake people.” Inspired by the “realness” these amazing Texans gave her, she was able to capture an unexpected glamour to life in Texas with Marc Jacobs pieces that sprinkled magic on everyday activities.

One notable subject is San Antonio’s very own, Erica Segovia! The photographer and mother of two served up some fabulousness wearing pink crop track pants, a bustier, a V-neck Golfer Cardigan also in pink and the Flower-Embellished Slide Sandals. Those giant crystal chandelier earrings are stunning, but the Turban was the piece de resistance! Presented in the Spring 2018 Ready to Wear Marc Jacobs collection, this turban is everything! And the 2017 San Antonio Fashion Awards nominee rocked it like nobody’s business!

When we asked Erica how it felt to be the model, since she’s usually behind the camera, and to be published on I-D Vice AND on Marc Jacobs’ social media she was just beside herself. “I mean I want them to hire me in all honesty! But really, it was such a fun experience for me and the kids and meeting Sasha [the photographer] was such a pleasure. We had both been on Rookie Mag together way back when, so doing it with her and Kindall (stylist) was so amazing! They even came back to my house and I made them fish tacos with all my friends. It was so precious!”

Erica’s adorable children were also featured in the shoot and article, in which she credits them for inspiring her everyday with their playfulness and unlimited imagination. To read the full interview and view all the photos, check out the article on I-D Vice. The entire project with all the subjects is raw, gritty and very Texan. It’s truly amazing!
