The Lookbook

"Focusing on the softer side of depression, the editorial proposal is inspired by raw emotions, femininity and nostalgia. All represented within white walls, bare feet in contact with the soil and melancholic expressions. Playing around with dry flowers... a reminiscence of life itself and the beauty that was once there."
