Keep reading to learn more about this beautiful art and how they created it, together.
What makes your team unique?
We have a passion for creativity and dedication for the craft. This is something we share with many artists, but each team and artist has something unique and beautiful to offer.
How does your team influence the collection?
It’s the unique combination of talents; we all help each other bringing each other’s vision to life. Each of us has something to bring to the table and since no one is perfect at everything, this is a huge strength in unity.
How did you work together to come up with the concept?
Everyone has a piece of their work in the development of the big picture idea. We have a specific culture that we are inspired by and we found it important that we brought that to life together – individuals coming together with a collective inspiration and making that inspirational vision come to life.
Who played what roles in executing the collection?
Every artist finds a niche within their craft. This individuality is underscored in each of the team member’s strengths and combining that in each look. Each and every artist had a hand in the looks from color to cut to style.
What was the inspiration behind the collection?
Mix and match each other’s craft within each individual. Inspiration is everywhere, and we wanted to combine street, glamour and cult art.
What was the most important aspect for you?
The most important aspect was having a team of like-minded artists who were all on the same page about bringing this vision to life.
How did social media influence your art?
Not at all. The madness of a true artist is creating a collection that stems from pure inspiration uninfluenced by social media. If anything, we are the opposite of “trends,” but strive to create visionary pieces of work that simply inspire and could one day become trendsetting, of course.
