Rose Water Looq Booq
Rose Water is a fashion line I design through PAOM.com (Print All Over Me). Over the past few years, I have captured, collected, and published an on-going series of photographs I take on glistening sun-lit walks through my neighborhood. I mainly capture plants, shadows, and moments of neon, glitter, or fluorescence caught in the natural(and artificial) world. These photographs have served as the well of images I use to design my PAOM line. In 2017, I won a PAOM endowment to photograph my designs modeled by people of color, plus size beauties, and lovely people in my life who fall outside the confines of white beauty standards. I then collaged, drew on, and transformed the photos to marry the uplifting, colorful, sun-lit ecstasy I slowly harvest on my walks, with a human, experimental and complex portrayal of beauty and fashion.
