To create an impactful, visual story takes courage, because of regardless of form, your art should be a direct expression of you.

Fueled by the hunger to create something sui generis and compelling, frequent collaborators, Stylist, Vane Karolle and Lagos-based photographer, Manny Jefferson, come together to create a riveting series of images shot in the beautiful suburb of Lagos, that is Yaba.

From an avant-garde look in the streets, accessorizing with a comb in lieu of a purse, the edit sees an assertion of non-conformity, however subtle.

“Act like royalty, If I please.

Play dress up, in these streets.

Fierce, strong, seldom weak.

Accessorize with her comb, a tease.

Won’t explain the rebel in Me.”
