For this story, I was inspired by the dreamlike and classic works of Camilla Åkrans. I wanted to showcase the essence of the model and use the page to further her confidence and stylish brilliance. PORTER was chosen as a hypothetical platform since the publication is known for its authoritative global point of view on fashion as well as its stunning page layouts. Since these images were shot in Dallas, the story ends with an article that brings attention to how high fashion made its way to Texas.
