So excited to be rolling out some of my proudest work yet. A couple of months ago Swedish fashion magazine @stylebymagazine reached out and asked me to be editor for a part of the September issue. For a long time I’ve had a vision of creating a series of portrait of women I’ve met tru the years, friends, family and colleagues that have inspired me and pushed me to work hard and be the best version of myself. These women all have ambition, strength and great talent and I’m so excited to share the great inspiration they have all given me. There is a beautiful black woman to be found in every profession and walk of life, here are some of my favorites from the north. I’m going to be posting this whole article tru out the day. Let me start by saying thank you to the crew. Photography: @ikramianism & @senayberhe Stylist: @pamelanorah Hairstylist: @sainachune Makeup artist: @ninabelkhirmakeup & @pari.damani Set design: @shmelie Production manager: @bintouelise Logo design: @mrbricks Without your hard work and patience this would have never been possible. I thank you for keeping my ideas safe and for watering this with your passion and skill. Thank you @editorjonnabergh for giving me this opportunity and for giving me 100 procent creative control. Thank you @columbinesmille for so humbly being my right hand and for suggesting that @ibbichune be on the cover. I was scared to suggest it and I really needed your voice in the room . The magazine hits the stands this Tuesday ❤️??
