Fashion meets fineart.

Last Tuesday I hooked up with models Georgia Atieno (@Atibelle on twitter), Michelle Ayuma (@ayumyum on twitter) and stylist Furaha M. (@kayndeto on twitter) at Kuona Trust Art Centre (www.kuonatrust.org) for a fashion/fine-art shoot.

The wardrobe was provided by Lalin Designers, Zumaridi Ornate and Ke.Ko (whose All items are up-cycled). Accompanying us was a photography group dubbed Onetouch with whom I am proud to be doing collaborative shoots with.

This wasn’t like a planned execution… you know ..just those ideas that spring up at awkward moments (this one came as I was taking my kiamsha kinywa – some arrowroots and porridge (am no health freak but hey).

Thika Rd light streaks

I had been debating about this shoot in my mind for a while but this time I got to do it. In disregard to the risk factor I headed out solo into the dark armed with my camera and tripod. The shoot took like an hour (8pm to 9pm) since I had to scout for locations.
