A COLLABORATIVE RUNWAY EXHIBITION PART 1



They are finally here, snaps from the ACRE show. I am stoked to share these with you, more will be posted on my Facebook page in the next few days. Being able to see the Linear Collection displayed in such a minimal, industrial venue was important to me. I explained to the models to think of themselves as buildings, as all the pieces were inspired by architecture; they understood the concept: "Be Strong and Independent". The project re-affirmed my belief that the simplest elements are always best to create maximum effect. I want to continue rejecting over-familiar notions while developing my personal and visual identity. I couldn't be more excited.

All photos by Kyran Yeomans from Particle Observer excluding the first; it was taken by Tanya Crail. Editing by Melissa Araujo

    1. Hey love! Yes it was a fantastic feeling. I have more photos to post I am editing them. Yes Kyran is Crystal's brother, they have a very talented creative family. He also has shot my campaigns and lookbooks for the Linear and Raw collection. His style is really similar to mine so it works. I am glad you like the photos, more to come soon. xx
