WE BACK BABY!!! – Photoshoot w/ Dorian Caster

Hey guys,

Sorry for being MIA for the past weeks. Here’s the photoshoot I’ve wanted you to see 🙂 the shoot went really well despite having only about an hour with Dorian in Tucson, AZ. Explaining what my culture means to me and that we need more native representation. Hopefully we will work together in future projects. I’m so glad Angel Haze got in contact with him and told me about his work.

ACONAV – Loren Aragon at Phoenix Fashion Week

Hey guys,

I have some huge news! On October 15, 2016 me and two friends of mine were luckily invited to Loren’s fashion line called ACONAV where he showcased his “Shattered Collection” at Phoenix Fashion Week at Talking Stick Resort & Casino in Scottsdale, AZ. He is Acoma Pueblo and is killing the game using his cultural designs! Representing the native’s he has combined traditional elegant designs that are his own. True to his style the dresses were bold and timeless.

My good friend Kelly Holmes, who is the founder of Native Max Magazine came to show her support and wore a beautiful original Aconav dress. Also Grace Dove -actress from the movie Revenant- came to show her support as well wearing an elegant Aconav dress with a graceful cape. Fine art artist Lehi “ThunderVoice Eagle” came and model Sierra Begaye came with southwest looks that had people’s attention, and definitely the photographers. Blogger Jaclyn Roessel aka Grown Up Navajo with Alana aka The Fancy Navajo showed her support. It was a beautiful night with old and new friends. I love designers that are able to incorporate cultural designs in their clothings (it’s not easy).

Here’s a short clip of Aconav’s models.
