This project, photographed by Nick Shamblott, was shot in New Orleans in an Esplanade Avenue estate in a room that belonged to Lenny Kravitz. Black plush carpet, gothic folklore, and eccentric New Orleans fashion inspired this editorial and story, styled by me. I built this look with New Orleans fashion designer, Korebelle of kKofetche. The walls of the mansion told many stories, and as we styled Tyla Cobette, her character spoke to me and revealed mystery and magic of Annette for Antenna.Works Rm 220.
I styled this editorial for Los Angeles-based photographer, Brooke Ashley Barone, featuring Tyla Cobette in vintage pieces from around New Orleans and the wardrobe of Rebecca Diaz, a local set/costume designer. The dreamy series, titled Cherry-Ripe, seamlessly fit the aesthetic of this indie magazine.

I recently wrote a piece for Amuse, a digital magazine published by i-D. The article is a guide to my second home, New Orleans. New Orleans is a weird place to digest and navigate for many reasons that are too abstract for me to put into words for now. I'm not originally from New Orleans, but that also gives me helpful insight to those who are visiting the city! I enjoyed this lil' project and grew closer to the city in the process of writing the article. <3
