Fresh off the runway of Arise Fashion Week 2018, fashion designer Karolyne Ashley teamed up with Pro Model Africa to create a captivating shoot that reimagines the pieces in her latest collection.
Tagged “The Rebirth”, the campaign shoot showcases a 16-piece collection of evening wear looks inspired by the innate process of life in becoming the immaculate royalty that we’ve all been created to become.
Lensed by Nigerian based photographer Tunbi Samuel with creative makeup done by Ella Gigi, the first scene, shows the water coloured dresses merging with the models to resemble goddesses of the sea. Floating printed silk and iridescent sequins illuminated the essence of the tropics as the ladies grew from the depths of the ocean. In scene two, there was a more refined aristocratic approach to this queenship.
The ladies were outfitted in darker more astute garments with ornate jewels embellishments. Representing the Duchess and Queen that rose to power and claimed their royal thrones.
