"Princess Gigi" Ventures into the Forest of High Fashion

Gigi Hadid ventures into the forest of high fashion in “Princess Gigi” by Luigi & Iango for Vogue Japan, December 2016. Embracing a more avant-garde route, this story takes her talents to an artistic end. Evocatively crafted, this dynamic duo lets the lens uncover her as opposed to asking the camera to simply shoot her. What some of the newer models/Insta-stars need to learn, in my humble opinion, is the act of what I call the Visual Get.

The One & Only ~ Gigi ~ Shows What it Takes 2 b a 4 Letter Wonder

Gigi Hadid shows us what it takes to be a four letter wonder in “Gigi” by Rankin for Dazed Digital, 25th Anniversary Issue, F/W 2016. She might look like an innocent flower, but, behind those bright eyes we see the mischievous markings of a good girl gone bad. Hadid does some serious damage by taking over the (old) Dazed office, smashing computers and going graffiti-chic. Katie Grand’s fashion choices capture a magical vibe, with frocks that mimic a modern fairytale.

Lindsey Wixson opens her body to the “Bare Necessities” by Amanda Charchian in Garage Magazine, F/W 2016-17. A triumph of the senses is heightened as Lindsey becomes one with the Isle of Greece.

Seeking emancipation, she drops robe, allowing herself to become one with the sun. 


Burnt Embers of Our Past ~ Seek a Stronger Future in Numéro Mag

The burnt embers of our past seek a stronger future, as smoldering sections signify the unspeakable pain we’ve endured as a people. Destruction is portrayed in charred pieces strewn across the floor, as wood is transformed into a tinderbox of tragedy. Construct controls chaos leaving us with the ravaging remnants of a once flaming inferno.

Ruven gives us a unique peak at the wonderful women, with a video that takes us behind the scenes. Pat speaks with a sweet, lilting affect, “something’s ticking here and there’s someone I have to meet,” while, Anna goes inside in, “an intimate process whereby you become a vessel to release your ego.” They believe that being open to the process allows the brilliance of the moment to find you.
