SHOT BY SIRIUS FILM
Denim editorial styled by myself.

We were inspired to do this shoot to show the relationship between females and the beauty in female friendship. Our initial inspiration was the aesthetics from the 90s and the recycling of trends in music and fashion. We looked at Aaliyah, Missy Elliot, Lil Kim and so on. My biggest inspirations are women from that era, their confidence, talent, aesthetic and perspective of being a strong young black woman. My signature styling is definitely a mixture of sports and the 90s era.
Denim is the focus point to communicate the theme through the construction, the tears, frays, stitching and layers of denim. How it also symbolises hard work and the many layers of female youth!
