This is the first look of a sustainable series that I was assigned to do for university for a “Sustainably Radical” assignment. Everything used to style my models were articles of clothing or fabric and objects that we already owned. My goal with these looks (6 looks in total, more to come) was to spend the least amount of money possible, be sustainable, and contribute less to the fast fashion market by not ordering clothes for this shoot. My concept was to portray how fast fashion effects the sea surrounding the island I come from, as people only think the results of fast fashion can only be felt where the production takes place. But the ocean is all connected, and the fibers and dyes spread all over the ocean, through the waves and beyond, and I wanted to focus on the emotion I have towards that situation.
It’s been a while since I’ve updated you all, but here are some photos of one of my last days at home, on the beach (my all time favorite place if you haven’t caught on by now). I’ve recently just started a new chapter in my life which I can’t wait to update you guys on soon!
For those of you who do not know, I am from the Cayman Islands. The Cayman Islands are made up of 3 islands and I live on the biggest one. But For the first time in 10 years, I took a trip to the smallest one, Little Cayman.
Little Cayman has a population of about 300 people (maybe less), and it is my favorite place in the world. Not only are you forced to relax, but you feel and sense of joy all the time because there is absolutely nothing to worry about. You can go outside and you will hear nothing but Booby birds or the crashing of waves from the sea.
I took my camera along with me and captured a few beautiful photos of the island that I will be sharing with you in my upcoming posts. Sadly I was only there for 4 short days but I cannot wait to be back!
