Bruk Out's Summer Solstice Event
For our first community event, we held a soiree on Rockaway Beach! This was designed as a workshop led by Coach Shanita who taught us how to use the energy of the solstice and the new season to incite change in our lives. We also enjoyed the musical styling of Bumbly, a Top 20 American Idol finalist who sings with her heart and soul.
Coming to America
The Front Room aesthetic according to Michael McMillian and Staurt Hall is a look developed by migrants coming from post British colonized lands.
This unique look was a key element in Caribbean upbringing and inflitrated itself into the sitcom look of the late 80s and early 90s. I put together this set pay homage to the nostalgia of our childhoods with a touch of modern flair.
Culture is often differentiated by clothing, food, and music. Shot in Singh’s, a classic Caribbean roti shop, I curated this series to provide visuals of some of culture specific components that Indo-Caribbean’s take pride in.
I created two contrasting concepts which through props and styling, exemplify a shift in narratives from a box of domesticity to women breaking out of this and playing dominoes, something only men typically play in the streets.
This ode to the “aunties” who through their domestic roles, laid the groundwork needed for us to pursue bigger dreams, takes place in front of Sybil’s - an iconic symbol of the beginning of Richmond Hill and a neighborhood where Indo-Caribbeans have made new roots in.
Working on social branding with up and coming vocal artist Khem. Designed video treatment for her first single which will be released this year.
Eden is the first in my series of projects that elevates other WOC and covers narratives that we are often not included in. This set demonstrates an imagery of holiness in a way not conventional to the mind.
Another narrative I created using a woman of color to represent the imagery of an Angel in order to counter the normalcy of these images only being of white women and babies.
