The Fall of Beauty Standards

I've been crafting my editorial look for the past year, trying to find a balance between storytelling and fashion.

Grim by Frida Detroit

Frida is a small boutique in Midtown, Detroit highlighting a heavily curated collection of apparel, accessories and gifts. Inspired by it’s namesake, Frida Kahlo, the shop is located in The Park Shelton, which was a luxury hotel home to Frida while Diego painted the murals at the DIA. The shop is an ode to Frida’s time in the area and her individualistic personality which purveys into modern women’s lib and popular culture. This series sought to capture the deep, rich, colors and textures present in the Frida collection, in a moody, earthy Brother’s Grim inspiration. As an objection to repeated outsourcing and whitewashing in Detroit advertising and commercial photography, Remy and Claire chose to work with a highly selected team, maintaining a standard of commercial diversity and locality – an option that is all too possible and often overlooked in the area.

Roderick

Last weekend Roderick and I got working on a fashion editorial series, and here are the results! We shot three casual outfits around Southwest Detroit, and thanks to bad weather we managed to get some epic shots using some massive puddles. Roderick is a recording artist from Saginaw, currently living in Detroit. He always had an interest in fashion, but hasn't made it a point to share his style, until now. Keep an eye out for more of Roderick's work in the next few months, I have a feeling we'll see more of him.

Speaking of Roderick's work, scroll below the gallery and check out a few of his tracks!
