I drew inspiration for my Velvetine collection from multiple channels. The hair and make up was inspired by Fall/Winter Vogue Paris, Spring NYFW and Spring Paris Fashion Weeks.

I loved the contrast of smooth to textured, moist to dry finishes within the hair which also connected with the make up. From deep smooth side parts, brandishing baby hairs, choppy bangs, knotted buns, blown out movement, shaped cornrows and braides but creating each style as my own. The make up incorporated contrasts of being bold with a seductive moody plum lip yet soft and dewy yet defined complexion and features.

With my models in high fashion unique garments to complement, I chose them to exhibit strength yet an element softness. Local designer made the collection of strong tailored cuts with strikingly feminine textured fabrics accentuated the strength I wanted to capture.

I wanted my images to be captured in beautifully shaded lighting with a luxurious deep rouge red backdrop to give the full feminine finish that I have created called Velvetine.
