Caroline Lawless is an actor, photographer and illustrator based in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. She has nearly a decade of experience working in the marketing, graphic design and commercial photography industries, and her clients range from inspiring local female entrepreneurs to celebrity stylists. She loves cats, coffee and cameras (in no particular order), and never leaves home without a book in her purse. Caroline can be seen in the North Carolina Museum of History’s Quilt Speak exhibit as well as the upcoming online series .org.
Caroline had modeled for my photographer, Emily in the past. I loved her on-camera look, but also appreciated and admired her work as a photographer! She was excited to be involved, and I chose a selection of Pamut garments that I knew would look stunning on her tall frame. One of Caroline’s main looks was the Simone Dress in Fig Raw Silk (which she ended up taking home that day!)
We also photographed her in a Cream Francine Top and Canvas Basil Pant (left). We styled the Francine Top with the scoop in the front (I love the versatility of this garment… the ties can be knotted in a variety of different ways, and you can also reverse it and wear the V in the front). One of my favorite compliments during shoot day was when Caroline told me that the Rae Jumpsuit (right) was the only jumpsuit that had ever fit her properly! Again, that Clay colorway was magic on Caroline’s skintone.
Caroline is 6′ and wears a size XSmall in all Pamut styles, with the exception of the Rae Jumpsuit (she wears a Small).
Kristin Robbins is an old soul living in modern times. She and her husband, along with their two daughters, are currently renovating an RV for tiny living just outside of Durham, NC. The family loves spending time being creative, and their goal in renovating the RV is to live a more simple and free life. Along with her jobs as a mother and bad*ss RV renovator, Kristen also works as head of social media marketing at Mainland Creative in Raleigh.
I knew Kristin from a previous modeling gig, and asked her to model for me again this season! We went for a moody vibe for Kristin’s main look, pairing an Ingrid Top in Charcoal with cozy Emil Pants.
I also wanted to make a Simone Top for Kristin (right), and she looked stunning in it! We styled it tucked into the Emil Pants in Evergreen for a monochrome look. This look works because the Evergreen pants act as a neutral. Though they have a definite green tint, they appear less bright compared to the pop of color that the Matcha linen provides.
Kristin is 5’7″ and wears a size Medium in all Pamut styles.
Ashley McIntyre started her fashion career at the tender age of 6 – hiding from her mom in the circular racks at Macy’s at Herald Square. Today, she’s a wardrobe stylist and writer who loves helping people uncover their personal style. She believes that style is for everyone and that it doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive. A Triangle transplant from Atlanta, she’s proud to call Durham home. When she’s not working, you can probably find her watching “Golden Girls” with her dog, practicing yoga or trying to convince her boyfriend that their living room needs another houseplant.
Ashley is an absolute joy to be around, and I was lucky to find her through some connections I had in Durham. It was very important to me during this shoot to showcase Pamut pieces on a curvy body, so I prioritized choosing Ashley’s looks before I chose those of the other models. For Ashley, I chose the Simone Dress in Clay as a main look. It fit her like a glove (and do I need to say a third time that the Clay color looks good on every skintone?!)
I also made Ashley a pair of Emil Pants which we now offer in 2XL and 3XL. We decided to pair the pants with a few different raw silk tops. We styled them first with the Simone Top (tucked in so we could show the gathered waist detail of the pant, and wrapped with the scoop in front) and then the Hanna Top in a new Fig color. I’ve always loved the relaxed fit of the Hanna Top, and the raw silk fabrication drapes beautifully whether you decide to tuck it in or not!
Ashley is 5’10” and wears a size 2XL in all Pamut tops, and 3XL in all Pamut bottoms.
