I have been researching African street style, particularly in Lagos, Akkra and Benin City. I absolutely love the style of the people in these photo’s, it’s so bold and confident. There are clearly modern, western influences, but in each you can still see a connection to tradition, whether that be a print or some jewellery.
So finally, here is the short fashion film I made to compliment and show my jewellery for the miniature collections brief. You can watch “Nothing Lasts Forever” on YouTube here; Nothing Lasts Forever: http://youtu.be/eLgAvbPGsyQ
I organised a photo shoot with a great professional photographer called Chris Tyler. He gave me the raw files of the photographs so I could have a go at editing them. I wanted to keep them pretty natural, as the models Hayley and Dan are pretty gorgeous as it is. They certainly aren’t perfect but I really enjoyed working on them and I am happy for a first attempt!
