Aside from being a freelance stylist, i am the fashion editor for an online magazine; http://www.blanckdigital.com
Blanck is an online fashion magazine with a heartbeat, and that heart is Africa… the Last issue was the freedom issue with the underlining question ‘what does freedom meant to you?’ We had four covers for the issue and one of the celebrity featured was aspiring songstress Lola Rae.
Initially, as the shoot was a beauty inspired feature, the moodboard i created for this shoot was very colorful, bright and summery. That was thrown out the window as we decided to strip her bare and build her look up.
I love how simple, somewhat raw and delicate she looks in some of these images…
Lola Rae is a natural in front of the camera and she evidently photographs well. Some of the images here did not make it into the magazine so you’re literally getting an exclusive on my blog lol.
If you have the time, head on to blanckdigital.com, check out the site and the magazine as i would love to know what you think.
