I loved to mess around with my sister's hair when I was young, but I never thought it could go anywhere. When my high school counselor accidentally put me in a photography class, I suddenly became very interested in photography and met Diana, who is my amazing mentor and, as we're both fascinated by art, I became the hairstylist and assistant during her photoshoots.
I love being involved in these shoots--I get to do such interesting things with people's hair and watch art come alive.
Founded by Diana Chao, Moonglass Studios was first established as Slivered Moon Photography. With a style that Frost would claim "lovely, dark, and deep," Moonglass Studios aims to capture the dawn of the soul within each photograph. A lover of conceptual/fine art photography, Diana occasionally accommodates shoots for portraiture and commercial purposes. Diana seeks the stories etched into every wrinkle and eyelid and is passionate about bringing those stories to life.
Letrendary is a fashion blog, but it's also so much more.
Like the legend of a map,
or the legend of a folklore,
or simply the legend of fashion.
Letrendary is the joint creation of Diana Chao and Dorothy Kang. It chronicles fashion, world cultures, literature, and everything in between.
