Lookbook - MOTHER and DAUGHTER photoshoot

We were approached by Karen to do a photoshoot with her and her daughter Zabrina. As we enjoy styling different ethnicities and age groups, we were eager to proceed.

Mama Karen and daughter Zabrina wear batik headwrap GARNET - colour palette red, white and black - look, smart/casual. Headwrap styled in THE TOPKNOT.

Like we do for all our photoshoots, we sent the mama and daughter team our mood-board suggestions which resulted in quite a bit of anxiety. But once we explained that all they needed was to check their personal wardrobes, they ended up having fun with choosing similar clothing items. Karen teamed a red midi dress and black sandals to team with headwrap GARNET while Zabrina chose a black leather jacket, white bodysuit and red maxi skirt.

Batik headwrap ORCHID - colour palette blue, lilac, black - look, casual. Headwrap styled in THE BANDEAU.

To team with headwrap ORCHID both Karen and Zabrina opted for blue denim jeans - Karen chose a loose-fitting cap-sleeve powder blue top while Zabrina chose a contrasting black short-sleeved top. Both wore sneakers.

Ankara headwrap AMERIE - colour palette black, look casual/sophisticated. Headwrap styled in THE BOW.

Headwrap AMERIE is a bold design! We thought a black ensemble would make the purple and turquoise splashes of colour pop even more. So Karen chose a sophisticated black maxi dress with side peepholes - Zabrina opted for a black scoop neck body suit teamed with black skinny jeans. Both wore sandals to complete the overall look.

DH would like to thank Karen and Zabrina for requesting this photoshoot. It was a challenge to put together a mood-board/lookbook that would compliment the age difference in an attractive way. Each headwrap was styled according to each separate look and in such a way as to make the most of the styling technique/angles. All styling ideas, accessories and lipstick was supplied by DH owner/founder CHARMAINE who was also responsible for doing/overseeing the complete photoshoot.

NOTE: In line with our mission, none of these images have been photoshopped!

 

 

 

Lookbook - Headwrap TARAJI

The movie HIDDEN FIGURES so empowered us that we felt compelled to name headwrap TARAJI after one of the leads TARAJI P. HENSON.

Brand ambassador GRACEY B styled  headwrap TARAJI  to compliment the gold design which is prominent throughout.

Since over-the-knee boots are such popular accessories, the urge to include these was irresistible!

Gracey's tan suede over-the-knee boots was an essential accessory to complete the look with headwrap TARAJI.

MEL G admitted that she would never have worn any orange hues if it were not for our photoshoot. You see that's just one of the bonuses of being our brand ambassador - you fall in love with colours you never thought would ever look good on you!

Sunglasses are an absolute essential when styling a shoot - these make marvellous accessories and add value to any photoshoot when used effectively.

The spectrum of colours in headwrap MACY, named after singer/songwriter MACY GRAY, is a lovely addition to our latest Autumn/Winter collection.

Styling for headwrap MACY consisted of the TURBAN. Instead of tucking in the loose fabric ends, we used these to tie a small side bow. Gold rings and hoops complete the look.
