This is a collaboration that I'd been chasing for a while, I love Nino Yap's photos, he is phenomenal and working with him is a delight. We sort of knew each other through mutual friends, still had not been able to properly connect. One evening I was at the wedding dinner of a makeup artist friend in Singapore, and lucky for me I was sat next to Nino. What followed after was a hard sell on my part, basically on how we should do a shoot. And here it is! For the occasion, I enlisted Gracia Ventus – a fantastic stylist whose love for Rick Owens is only matched by one of my friends back in Philadelphia (rare). When a good team comes together, it is like magic, time just flies. Our lovely model, Rhianna I happened to work with before, really worked it! I used my Yaby pigments and Makeup Forever HD with some false lashes to pull of this look.
