ILLUMINATE // Nikki Porter
The inspiration for my first black and white photo shoot was to experiment with light and texture with an emphasis on the head shape and how to morph and play on it.
This theme of texture was also threaded through the styling with the use of a double denim androgynous feel infused across the collection; this was then reflected in the hair, complementing it well.
Using a combination of braiding, jewellery and paper to create Illuminate, touches such as leaving regrowth to elicit more texture within the look and creating a grunge feel were used.
The inclusion of a haircut and colour combination really defined the head shape, and the variation of using paper and crocheting hair through holes in the paper, produced an undone messy frizz to the look.
