VINICIUS (Vini) : One of my New York fashion muse. One will see that his narration is central to Project A and myself and ultimately the hardest visual arts, painting, and photoshoot to complete. He has given me a lot of creative freedom to really tear his images apart and reconstruct them together. He enjoys it!
YEMI/ TEHANI/AXELLE : Photogenic , lights a screen, fashion muses. YEMI in turn is the duality with Tehani from Paris. Axelle will then create a triad effect with Yemi and Tehani. You will see three beautiful girls capture the lense entirely differently and not the lense capturing them. The sweetest girls too ! Two of them are LEOS, one of them is LEO ascendant. So they were meant to shine bright. They are relatable, approachable, and I think that this is important.
