FLEXSUS STUDIOS PRESENTS::: BOTANICAL FRAGMENTATION

One of the coolest parts of the internet, at least to this lady, is its ability to create a global community. I have met some of my best friends through the internet and I’ve been able to work with some incredible people and brands because of it as well. Although it can feel isolating when this internet love turns into obsession, the potential for collaboration and community that the internet brings is truly incomparable.

Today’s post is special and different and, more than anything, exciting. My good friend Morgan approached me with this incredible video that her friend Sarah Prinz, of Flexsus Studios, choreographed and danced in. She knew I would love it- and she was right.

Botanical Fragmentation merges the creativity of Sarah alongside director Trevor Osmond, and pairs this with designs from Polish born Agnes Hamerlik. There’s an exquisitely unnerving quality to this video, with stark movements and choreography juxtaposed alongside delicately  decadent dresses. Blood red designs feel eerie adorned with floral embellishments and there’s a sense of decadence when this is followed by midnight black sequined chiffon. Sarah’s performance, her craftsmanship, brings these dresses to life- allowing a visual exploration of what it means to be human and to move through this life in your own skin. There’s an Alexander McQueen-esque quality to this piece- bold in its beauty with an underlying motif that the masks we wear only serve us if we let them.

High Voltage Blog X El Bambino

I’m so excited to announce my collaboration with Miranda of High Voltage Blog!! She just opened the doors to her own Etsy shop of the same name, and asked me to help model and style a shoot. I happily obliged and asked if she would mind if I could make a lookbook out of it by pairing some new crowns I made for El Bambino with her vintage finds. We planned it out and spent the day catching up, grabbing some (veggie) sushi, laughing, and basking in the incredible summer air. Check out her Etsy for some of the pieces we styled!! I’ll be posting 7 new crowns on my Etsy, El Bambino, within the next week and I will post a link once they’re up
