Indigenize your style the right way.
On Sunday, May 5th, I styled my first editorial shoot with a community-driven collaboration with Arizona’s top creatives including Roberto Cordero Jr. (photographer), Bianca Mead (model), and Gilbert Tellez (hair and makeup).
The concept for the shoot was redefining indigenous style with a modern twist.
Too often there’s a disconnect between non-Natives and their adornment or appropriation of indigenous fashion. I wanted to show how ANYONE can indigenize their style the right way without being stereotypical, disrespectful, and/or offensive.
More importantly, I wanted to show that indigenous peoples are more than just feathers. Let’s put an end to tacky tribal!
The shoot took place in downtown Phoenix at Blok Studio (B2).
