When talented Columbus photographer Emma Parker approached us with her vision for a fashion shoot she was pitching to Outlook Columbus, we were excited to be included! The concept featured women in Pursuit clothing in outdoor settings around the Franklinton neighborhood of Columbus. The powerful photos challenge the norms of "dressing up" as a woman and capture a confident energy we often see around Pursuit. To make things even better, Outlook featured them on its December cover along with a multi-page spread inside!
Despite being a "menswear" shop, we have a long history of outfitting women in our suits. We pride ourselves in making the experience at Pursuit all about you and the major moment in your life we're outfitting you for, whether you're a woman or a man. So when women walk in to Pursuit and they like our style, we aim for them to have the same type of experience we aim to offer all our customers, one that's centered around them.
We were so honored to be included in this project and so flattered by how great Emma, her team, and the models made Pursuit look! Big thanks to Emma and Outlook for allowing us to share these photos with you too.
