Throwback: a 2012 Fashion Grunge Retrospective

In lieu of the typical “throwback” post I wanted to share what 2012 has meant for us over here at FG. So many things happened this past year and we hope to only get bigger in the next 12 months. I know everyone is doing these posts on their respective blogs but it’s always good to look back on the year and build off of what you have done already.

Cody put together a video of everything we shot this year and with me giving some of my favorite highlights of the year!

Here is a quick visual retrospective on what’s been going on all year:
