“Yes: I am a dreamer. For a dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world.” - Oscar Wilde
It is always such a huge honor and source of inspiration when you have the opportunity to collaborate with amazing artists. Even though we had an end goal of creating wearable floral fashion for American Flowers Week, we did not let it hold us back. Creating something that came not only from our hearts but from the strangest part of our creative souls. When you have the opportunity to just run with an idea no matter how strange and unusual it might seem and no one second guesses or bats an eye at it you have a sense of freedom and exhilaration that just takes over. We are forever grateful to have the opportunity to collaborate with these three incredible artists and needless to say, let our freak flag fly.
We approached this shoot envisioning Ashley as an extraterrestrial existing in a world where she does not belong, longing for a place to call home, where she truly fits in. Eventually her longing dives her mad. Enjoy.
Madness sets in.
