Obsidian is an annual lifestyle publication highlighting women of color who love to embrace individuality in the Pacific Northwest. It’s an open-minded, graceful, and edgy magazine that celebrates natural hair, politics, beauty, art, and fashion.
Obsidian’s fall fashion spread takes us to Seattle’s Freeway Park which features many under-appreciated beautiful concrete structures. The juxtaposition of that style of architecture with the position of women of color in society shows my readers that there is often great beauty in the overlooked.
I collaborated with photographer Joy Strange to create a fashion spread that displays a classic, comfortable, edgy, and timeless style that shines even in Seattle’s gloomy and wet weather.
Additionally the highly polished minimalist approach with each outfit and pose complements the beautiful structures and landscape of Freeway Park.
