Nosizo Mahlangu is a talented model from South Africa who recently moved to New York. I had already collaborated with her before (“Dairy Tales I“). She is not only a great model but also a great person. That’s why I am thrilled to collaborate with her again.

She is a finalist contestant (among 30 to 50 others) for 2015 Miss New York USA. Pageants will be held January 16-18, 2015 at The Performing Arts Center at Purchase College. These are the photographs that will represent her in that contest.

When she asked me for those pictures I could only say yes. We were looking for the characteristic look and feel of these kind of competitions, but also wanted to achieve an image that was closer to the fashion world.

This is the result of that collaboration.

– The making of these images was possible thanks to: Carolina Restrepo (MUAH), Nosizo Mahlangu (model) and Luisa Puerta (Stylist)
