New Editorial: IT Girl

A couple of months ago I got around to East London to art-direct, style and model for photographer Andrew Smith. My vision was to create a series of images celebrating the ‘IT girl’ in all her highly melanated #BlackGirlMagic- whilst showing off my fashion credentials both in style and leadership. I worked with designer Eden Keshia’s pieces and also styled from my own wardrobe.  And yes I had a lot of fun widdit!

Last week it was published on @voixmeetsmode’s journal and instagram platform to my excitement- it is a great support and motivation to keep me working and learning behind the scenes and infront of the lens. I know first hand the fashion/creative industry still lacks diversity in this area with ‘black women’ let alone the models, so I am passionate about doing the bit I can and fighting for that opportunity #RepresentationMatters

Big s/o to Mr Smith for being open minded, willing to learn and giving me creative control- from choosing the colour of the backdrop all the way to taking my feedback on lighting my skintone right, and working on the final edits. MUA @jen_ospina0512 also bought her A-game. I’ll be sharing more from the shoot on my insta so stay tuned! #HereToCreate
