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 ANIKA

Headwrap ANIKA had brand ambassador MARIAMA T's name written all over it!

Mariama's braids pretty much guided the way we styled  headwrap ANIKA  and influenced our mood board - a casual and yet chic look.

To emphasise the colours in headwrap ANIKA we chose a colour palette of orange and blue - orange top, blue bottom - orange top to make the contemporary pattern pop even more.

In line with our colour palette and mood board, Mariama opted for a pair of knee high black boots (edgy and chic), a denim shorts that she had recycled from a jeans and an off-the-shoulder boldly coloured orange bodysuit.

Gold hoops and bright orange lipstick including a funky ring and some hippie-hippie-shake-shake bracelets completed the look.

Leaving a few of Mariama's braids outside headwrap ANIKA added to the casual look we were aiming for and highlighted the intricate and painstaking workmanship that goes into creating this magnificent hairdo.

A two-seater turquoise table setting was the ideal backdrop to showcase the bold, bright oranges and blues in headwrap ANIKA.

Mariama made full use of the surroundings to showcase headwrap ANIKA which is named after African American actress  ANIKA NONI ROSE.

Mariama is the founder of Brisbane based fashion design label MANESSAH OFFICIAL. So it comes as no surprise when she does such an outstanding job in selecting her wardrobe. And of course, this photoshoot is made possible with the input of Janna, our photographer - gratitude to the both of you divas!
