How beautiful is this girl?
Stunning Olashade credits her German and Nigerian bloodlines for her exotic presence. As a model photographer, Karen thinks this fascinating cultural blend gives Olashade the perfect face and figure to showcase fashion pieces inspired by the 1970s. Olashade even had her nails painted in tiger stripes. She looked like a warrior earth mama!
The 1970s were a time of political and social upheaval. Flower children protested the Vietnam War and Bob Dylan and John Lennon sang about revolution. What better fashion era to influence our own tumultuous times here at the beginning of the twenty first century?
In this retro spirit, fashion designer Vanessa Henderson of the House of Van Miller took the earthy color palettes and African inspired prints of the 1970’s and beautifully incorporated them into her own fashion designs while Denise and Carla of Bella Mia Hair Salon in Roswell GA designed hair and makeup to complete Olashade’s look.
Working with Olashade was fantastic! Karen particularly loved Olashade’s ability to lose herself in the moment. The vintage radio was a fun prop and it brought Olashade to a perfect balance of presence and dreaminess. She was a total natural!
Karen used one of her favorite photo shoot locations here in Cumming, GA. The earthy tones of Olashade’s camel colored top and the long soft lines of her embroidered blue bell-bottomed pants were complimented by the golden fallen leaves and soft sunlight through the trees around her.
When Karen saw Olashade in the halter dress with the long draped skirt she knew she wanted to compliment those lines by setting her in an open field to emphasize her tall figure. In her last shoot, the close fitting blue evening dress set off her defined cheekbones and sparkling eyes and fell so perfectly around her that Karen shot a bunch of close-ups to show her off.
Keep an eye out for this girl, she’s goin’ places!
