June 16, 2015

Check out this new photo series from Milwaukee-based styling collective Fashionable Demand. The conceptual work of art, lensed by photographer Jamie Robarge, features the collective’s creative director Michael Ja’Ameer and is titled ‘Rebirth’. Ja’Ameer tells us: “‘Rebirth’ was inspired from the idea of self-reinventing, i think thats necessary in order to stay relevant and current with fashion & arts ever changing flow. It isn’t necessary to always lead with your left foot when you want to take a step further, sometimes you have to change the pace in the way you walk in order to get to where you want to go in life, we needed that change in pace with how we were doing things. We wanted to Give this idea a visual, using body movement and interpretation in each scene to tell the story of how i am being reborn, a creative whose path was once to become a professional stylist, who has now discovered that there’s art behind fashion”.
