As You Were
Our good friend Diana reached out to Part Time Mag and in her own words she summarizes our experience together.
“This year was a year of exploration for me. Moving into a part-time role (wink) at my workplace allowed for me to exercise more freely within the creative realm. I’ve always enjoyed putting pieces together and building things from bottom up. Per contra, my experience has only consisted of assisting others and never completing any of my own projects, until now. As You Were is a product of practice, trusting the process, and the pursuit of discovering passion. Here is the aftermath.”
“Short for Leave As You Were, was the second photoshoot I produced and directed. With the help of Part Time Mag and Egg Studios in Brooklyn, we were able to bring to you this idea of a “no dress code”… a concept that plays off of “come as you are” — no filter.’’
“Styled by PTM’s Allan, this collection consisting of mixed format photographs celebrates personal style, highlighting the juxtaposition of two contradicting pieces (my fav). We find this in Allan’s jacket and short combo, as well as Noeli’s skirt and sneaker ensemble.
Allan and Noeli’s relationship unknowingly played an important part in this project. Their genuine chemistry and attraction married with their distinctive personal street style is what inspired me to produce this project. Our day together, full of good vibes and Archie’s pizza, is definitely one to look back on.’’
