Sometimes the unexpected looks put together turn out best.
The black and white cape came in for a special evening shoot that I did for Nawa3em.com – which wasn’t added to the selection at the time! I loved the dramatic design in terms of style, length and the funkiness in print, so I thought this is too good not to be photographed.
It is from the AW16 evening wear collection by Barrus Turkish heritage designers based in London. On the catwalk it was styled with an embellished jumpsuit. I wanted to create a glamorous look with a touch of effortless chicness, more fashion-forward way.. Kept it cool with shorts and plain white shirt, added statement classic accessories (pearl necklace and bow pearl shoes).
Hair and make-up have a strong effect in creating looks, so I kept my hair minimal with a side braid and had dramatic make-up which complimented the look I was after.
