We chatted with Long Beach based model and creative Maly Mann about classic style and where she draws inspiration.
How would you describe your personal style?
M: Keep it simple and classic. A nice pair of denim or a simple dress.
What inspires you most about living in California?
M: Being near the ocean creates this type of clear air that really helps me in the creative process. If you're ever feeling uninspired, just sit by the water for a bit and close your eyes.
We always see you producing/directing/styling shoots- what projects are you working on next that you’re excited about?
M: Ah! There are so many things I want to do but just haven't had the time to get them going. However, I know that I want to start photographing inspiring people in the natural state whether it would be at home or at work, I want to emphasize people in their raw life. The gritty, funny, and loving. So, I am pretty excited to get that going!
