Raps Double Studio Shoot x ATL

Kicking off my blogging “catch up endeavor” with this amazing editorial studio shoot. YOU GUYS! I had so much fun participating in this. Not only was it a breath of fresh air to think outside of the box and just simply create, but it was the most wonderful experience to work with three incredibly talented artists- talented twin musicians + one amazing stylist. (I’ll link their websites below). To say I’m happy with the outcome is an understatement.

ASTRID | ATL | SLOW FASHION

After watching the documentary "The True Cost" (which I highly, highly recommend everyone watch) I felt so guilty buying into the weekly fashion ads that took my email by storm. I've made the conscious decision to stop buying clothes so often and--when I do go shopping--to invest in pieces that will last me long term, are sustainable, and produced ethically. If you've never heard of the term "slow fashion" it simply entails this idea of purchasing reused clothes from second hand boutiques, thrift stores and shopping at stores that no longer produce their items at a rapid pace. In other words, shopping consciously and intentionally.  

As you can imagine I was so excited when I was reached out to about a collab with INDIE SOUTH and COCO + MISCHA. Both boutiques encourage slow fashion through their use of recycling garments. Without further ado...
