When i received a copy of these photos I was truly amazed by it. Dont get me wrong I am totally not glorifying myself as the model here. I am simply amazed at how the ideas behind this photo was translated into something this unique and incredible. Its not your conventional fashion or beauty shot because it is not our purpose. This photo along with a few others (ill be posting soon) was born out of the passion to create something different/off kilter imagery. It was something I wanted to do since forever (on myself hehe). Plus, it was also a perfect excuse to work with an amazing photographer, and talented hair and makeup peeps in order to make this vision possible.

The first thing that popped in my alcohol ridden head was "That could be an amazing name for a cocktail"...hehe...
I like the headpiece just like the neckpiece from Custodio you wore in another look... The top with the somewhat of a bandeau inspiration (as per me) and the tiered shoulders are great architectural elements... Your gauntlets are interesting as well...
Hyped!
Andre Judd
or instead of a cocktail it can be a good name for a horror flick. yikes! yjup the headpiece is similar to the neckpiece i wore in "Serpentine Soliloquy". both are made of the same materials and same technique:) the suded caged top is a vest type but it does look like a bandeau hmmm. hehe. those tiered shoulders i love. i love shoulder detail in clothes. it adds a new dimension to your silhouette. You noticed the gauntlets too? i love it when you scrutinize the little things because those little things in fact make the whole story. You should post more pics Akshay:) i want to see more of you here in lb!:)
Erik  G
Ugh Andre why are you so fabulous? Like wow. I turn my head away from the interwebz for just a few days and I miss seeing this amazing picture. Absuotley stunning.
Andre Judd
