A Strong Sense of Being: Briana Williams Part 1

Hey All!

     I got a chance to do some modeling again! My friend needed to take pictures of garments she made for her portfolio and she asked me to model. I was so excited about the experience that I just had to share it with you all.
          Briana Williams, 21, was born and raised in Miami, FL. Growing up in the sunshine state and being part Jamaican she has been influenced by nature and watching her wonderful mother in the garden. She even said she would love to move  Jamaica one day. Lets hope that's not until she has graced us with her talents by designing a line that we can wear one day soon. 
     When it comes to art of any kind one of my favorite parts is knowing what the artist thought and felt when they created what you are now being able to view. Below you will find photos of the shoot as well as the artist statement I asked Briana for. Because of course I had to know what was going on in her head, haha. So just sit back and admire the amazing designs.

alarming contradiction to the predictable style and silhouette that we
categorize for a woman as acceptable and modest.

her dress; sharing her personality while confronting mystery in her
     Choosing a fabric this bold suggests that the muse has become
vulnerable to the viewers. Thus, implying a stronger approach to
detach the thoughts of her bystanders with her quaint presentation.
