I have to admit, I was extremely excited when I was asked to shoot Winnie Harlow for the September cover of Marie Claire Mexico. Not only is Winnie the most famous model I have had the pleasure of working with (to date), but Winnie is a huge inspiration to women, through her work as a spokeswoman and activist for women’s self esteem.
Because Winnie is an icon unto herself, I wanted to keep the fashion relatively simple both through the texture and the tone. This winter fashion has seen it’s fair share of ‘out there’ styles; We’ve got an eighties revival, a devotion to all things purple, and an elevated success of sportswear. I wanted to go against the grain and take it back to basics, after all, fashion is just an accessory for someone with great style… and Winnie has considerable style.
