Visuals for: @waved.360
These images are for my durag line Waved.360 it is a luxury durag brand and I wanted to portray this in the visuals.
The whole theme of my shoot is black empowerment and royalty. I was inspired mainly by Renaissance paintings and Greek gods. Now, as these gods and subjects in the paintings are all of a white decent I thought it would be a good way to play on the idea that black God’s existed/exist too.
I made sure I put together a team of black women as well to ensure I am being a part of uplifting the people who are sometimes overlooked and underrepresented in the creative world!
