embers of bloom

March 30, 2017

words by: Vane Karolle

Inspired by friendship and that perennial fantasy of becoming someone else through fashion. this film from Lagos-based stylist Daniel Obasi is a visual exploration of what finding your self might look like. Perhaps it's a momentary realization and escape through emptiness, expression and metaphor into something completely different, into something that makes you bloom.
