I love the look of flower crowns, not so much wearing it on a casual days. There's something elegant yet a little playful with having flowers in your hair. So I decided to create a fashion portrait that celebrates the beauty of flower crowns on women. An inspiration for this was Frida Kahlo, an artist I completely adore. Her life wasn't quite a fairytale and her works conveyed that properly which is always entrancing to look at, and at times I have to admit, quite disturbing. Nonetheless, I love the symbolism she used to capture a meaning and a story in her paintings that only she can truly understand.
