Ayona Lost In The Music

I was able to work with Chicago R&B/Pop singer, Ayona, and her 10 back up dancers for her second music video entitled 'Lost In The Music". The look was very edgy, slightly goth, very sexy, very Rihanna inspired, very Vogue. She is such a sweetheart! The dancers danced so HARD, they were not playin!!! The shoot ended up being really fun!

I almost wasn't able to make it because the video shooting was in Gary, IN. I have no car and everyone I knew with a car wasn't available for that weekend. By the miracle of GOD, the hairstylist, Ziff Anthony, had JUST enough room in his car for me at the very last minute. I was stuffed between the back seat car door and a giant cooler, but I was so happy none the less. We made it work!

Her creatively beautiful sunglasses & accesories were provided by Malachi Artese. Her amazing garments were provided by Kris Rey. Check them out!! They are rising stars in Chicago trying to do their thing. Gotta respect that!

I did about 6 different looks for Ayona and each of her 10 dancers had a distinct, avant garde look as well. Here's a few photos from the shoot!

The video was debuted at Plush Night Club.

Here's the video!!

MAC has done it again!

MAC has collaborated with Disney and created this fun packaging with gorgeous, highly pigmented colors. I love when they team up with classic icons (Barbie, Hello Kitty, Fafi, etc.)
