Last month, I collaborated with a friend of mine to do a Look Book shoot before my summer break. We wanted to do something more editorial with a quirky flair.
I have worked with Nasrah Omar previously for my Senior Thesis collection back in my college days at F.I.T. We managed to stay in contact and make time to do shoots back in January featured at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. Secret Garden By Nasrah Omar
Nasrah was kind enough to submit one of the photos to VOGUE Italia and they selected this photo below to be featured in their photo archives.
It’s No Big Deal, I’m Far From Famous, But This Is A Nice Addition To My Portfolio.
My name is Kika. About a year ago, I decided to change my lifestyle and see how far my potential can go. For a very long time, I felt invisible in life. I was overweight and I hated who I was. I was lazy, depressed and never searched for opportunities in my life to do better. I was afraid of change. After losing 100lbs, I started to get my life together and give myself a plan to live my best life no matter what challenges face me. A few years before, I studied fashion design and earned my Bachelor's Degree from the Fashion Institute Of Technology. I didnt dedicate enough time to actually working on my clothes and I didn't think I would create anything interesting enough. But I do find my passion in designing and sketching, despite not having enough experience in the fashion industry. I am known for my sketches and ecclectic designs. My illustrations are very unique and I developed my own individual style. I would like to design conceptual pieces for performers and artists like myself. Other than fashion, I was introduced to the world of modeling and I am just getting started.
