A Mid-Summer's Night Rio


"This Morning I woke up and refused to comb my hair!"

When I first heard this line from the published poet, lyricist, performer, love maker and Adha Zelma "IT" goddess Faybiene Miranda, I knew we would be friends for a very long time. I soon found out Faybiene is a legendary name in Reggae. Her first recording, 'Prophecy' in the 1970's is regarded as one of the biggest classics from the period.


This diva is one of the most stylish artists in any scene. She rocks an earthy, world-culture sophistication and was the perfect model choice for our Mid-Summer's Night Rio shoot.

It was important to Sheanan and myself to make sure the model we selected was truly a woman who could embody a spirit with NO regrets, loves her power and wants all eyes on her. Faybiene was perfect!


Our muse for the Rio collection was "Titania," queen of the fairies from Shakespeare's A Mid-Summer's Night Dream. We wanted to approach the shoot with a blend of theater (my background) & fashion (Sheanan's).

Our good friend Sean from In Focus photography was down to join us in our creative voyage.



So off we went renegade style...
