STYLING/MAKEUP BY ME FOR @V.RI0T
Planet New York CH. 1: Lower East Space
I shot, styled, and did makeup for this editorial of my fellow LA native/creative, Iyana Banks. When coming up with the concept for this shoot, I wanted it to signify our big move from LA to NYC. For me, NY is completely new territory. When I’m lost in the intricacies of the subway and between all of the towering sky scrapers, it feels like I’ve been transported to a whole new planet. It is a vast and beautiful concrete jungle with new things to discover around every corner. The intense energy that zooms through the air sends tingles down your spine and inspires you to chase after your dreams with everything you have. This city insists that they are entirely achievable, just look around you. I used my eclectic LA street style mixed with metallics against our newly aquainted NYC landscapes to paint a picture of an extraterrestrial being who won’t have any trouble fitting into this new environment, or rather, standing out.
