Behind-the-Scenes of She is King

“Why Sunol?” I asked Christopher@Empire. Samantha@Empire  pitched to shoot our next lookbook in Sunol  and neither of us understood why… until she brought him to Little Yosemite.

This year’s spring/summer collection will be the first we cater to womyn.

I started categorizing some of my artwork as She is King, a series to celebrate that everyone, man or womyn, should be able to reach their highest potential without the oppressions of a title. Womyn too can lead others out of darkness. Womyn too can provide for our family and our kingdom. This upcoming collection extends the She is King  feminist approach to apparel.

Christopher said that Little Yosemite perfectly fit She is King because of its freshness and varying scenery. From climbing rocks to rejuvenating in waterfalls– the environment would allow the model to majestically engulf herself in nature with no worries but rather with self-reliance.

Which is also why he only chose one model for this shoot: Giann. He only wanted one model to show that “a womyn can stand alone.”
