I teach to learn.
with fashion has
always been meaning...
it's embedded into
who I am,
supporting my community -
from urban youth to
up n' comers, it brings me much joy to
expose, empower and create with others.
Gina Valenti, California native and the creative eye (photographer) behind this shoot is in her senior year at Brook's College. Gina decided on New York for her first real-world steps, just 6 days fresh to Brooklyn we had the opportunity to create together. My daily armor mixed with her love for fashion photography.
Supporting creative minds like Gina and young minds I work with through Freedom Star Mentorship gives meaning to all my work. And so, I freely style fun floral kicks by Irregular Choice with satin cocktail dresses in the middle of the day for creation-sake. What can I say, life is good.
Freedom Star Accessories translucent drop earrings paired with square bangles from a artesian in Old San Juan Puerto Rico. To bring a lil' fantasy to this outfit my Alice in Wonderland inspired ring from Flavour boutique in Brooklyn.
