A Beautiful Collaboration

Behind the Cover - March 2011

For four years, the Aquage team has collaborated with MODERN to create a stunning cover for our March issue. This year, our collaboration was selected from a series Aquage created exclusively for America’s Beauty Show.

For two days, the Aquage team, led by Vice President of Creative and photographer Luis Alvarez, worked with the team from America’s Beauty Show and MODERN Editor Laurel Nelson on location at McCormick Place.

“It wasn’t until the first time I stepped into McCormick Place when it was totally empty that I realized how truly beautiful and inspiring the place really is,” said Alvarez, who was the photographer of the shoot.

“The scale of the building is so impressive, yet the attention to detail and the delicacy of each individual component in combination with the massive works of art that fill the walls is exquisitely sublime. I can’t think of a more inspirational place to have an artists’ gathering.”

Following the shoot, the Aquage team embarked on a national tour to create their first editorial shoot for Biomega—the newest line of products from Aquage. To see the exclusive photos from shoots in Miami, New York City, Kansas City, Los Angeles, Denver and Austin, Texas, see “Design Matters.”
