Does wearing a backless dress and heels (like you did here) while shooting a men’s show make you feel powerful?
It creates a visual connection between who I am and what the others see. Â It makes me feel safe and secure to think that others may understand me better through the image I put forth. For me, it doesn’t depend on who I’m with or what I’m doing; dressing in a sophisticated and feminine way is something too natural for me to detach from.
Is this how you typically dress for travel?
I had two black suitcases that day and was feeling nostalgic. I was going back home after two months of traveling around the world taking photographs. Â I was wearing the black cape because it reminded me of someone I met during my journey, and would not see for a long time. Â I wrapped gold enamel from the Chanel show a few days before, and twisted colorful silk threads through my braid to symbolize the route of travel, and the thoughts woven in between.
