feature: experimental electronica artist fka twigs is a silver-loc’d goddess in mesmerizing editorial for dazed and confused

September 27, 2016

fka twigs—musician/performer/mermaid—recently sat down with Dazed and Confused Magazine for a joint interview with friend and fellow performer, Damaris Lewis, for Dazed’s 25th anniversary issue. In the issue, the petite avant-garde creative talks fearlessness, working with Prince and just doing her own damn thing. “I’ve always just been doing what I wanted to do. That’s not to say certain things don’t make me feel insecure. I’m a human being. But ultimately I realise that what’s inside me is far more important than what’s on the outside of me. How I feel on the inside is far more important than how people think of me,” Twigs told the magazine. See twigs in full-out silver-loc’d goddess mode by checking out some of the incredible shots from the feature, taken by Ryan McGinley and styled by Karen Langley, down below!
