A big thank you to Institute Magazine for publishing our editorial.
Our editorial, Sun Goddesss was planned rather quickly as Leticia was traveling to Milan so we only had a limited time to shoot. She is from Brazil Wilhelmina Models Dubai but is based in Milan. A sweet, fun, young woman, full of energy with an infectious smile and gorgeous cropped hair.
We were honored that one of the foremost talented designers in Dubai, Ezra Santos , who graciously allowed us to use his beautiful gowns from his recent collection. Sleiman, our talented stylist and I met up with him at his design studio in Dubai to discuss the pieces we wanted to use for the shoot.
My dear friend Shindesu, who I have worked with on earlier shoots was responsible for the lovely hair and makeup.
We decided to shoot at Bastikiya at the creek in Deira, Dubai. A favorite for tourists who want to see a more “authentic” part of this region. I think Ezra’s beautiful pieces complimented the surroundings.
A big thank you to the wonderful team who made this lovely shoot happen.
