I used a dark skin local model,Kayden as my muse and incorporated some handmade pieces I made using a local bag called “Mozimbabwe” in Botswana but referred to as “Ghana Must Go”in the most parts of Africa.

The reason why I picked this bag is that I wanted something that resonated with Africa or had an African Identity.

The bag was used in the past as a travelling back by women who used the train mostly between Botswana and Zimbabwe.

These woman travelled long distances to get produce to feed their families from the neighboring Zimbabwe.

Other pieces I used for styling was an off the shoulder one hand cream dress from LT Peculiar Designs.

All the images depict the beauty of a modern, dark skinned woman,” stated Raymond.

Fashion is hugely becoming a medium to use to visualize the story of beauty; defying of old stereotypes, referencing the past as a way of story-telling and preserving the culture and the story of being, and this is no different.
