Mi Sexy Chambelan
People often associate Mexico with drug trafficking as well as the lavish celebration of quinceaneras – I decided to embrace these contrasting misconceptions and create a light hearted narrative in an attempt to showcase the intricacies and uniqueness of my culture. The looks are based on a chaotic 15th birthday party that has been infiltrated by well camouflaged drug lords. All in all, the birthday girl seems to be transforming into a sophisticated woman on her special day, however, like the garments she is wearing, there is an underlying danger and rebellious energy.
