PROJECT: Holiday Magazine Issue #382: Bhutan cover & editorial shoot
ROLE: Stylist & Research Assistant. Delivered shoot visualization, concept and historical research, and storyboarding preparation.
CONCEPT: This shoot’s research and styling draws from the history and contemporary culture of Bhutan, particularly its rich tradition of textile production and emerging street style scene. Bhutanese weaving is recognized for the variation and complexity in its dyeing and weaving techniques and is valued both for its economic power and artistic expression. This shoot sought to honor that history in a modern day context by combining vintage and newly produced traditional textiles with more contemporary, sport-centric streetwear popular in 2018 Bhutanese fashion.
