LA HAINE

To be completely honest, I don’t know where to start. Daniel Agyekum (DNK) is my name. I studied Fashion Buying and Marketing at University and currently interning at various fashion brands from the likes of AllSaints, DUNE, DCK Concessions and many more. I have also had the opportunity assisting at a fashion show in Madrid. I was able to assist with tasks from styling the models to risk auditing to leasing with the designers and outfit building. So I thought it was time I shared these experience with you.

The vision behind this shoot was simply “Black and White”; so in effect the name of this post derived from the concept. The pictures reminded me of a black and white french movie I watched about 7 years ago called ‘La Haine’. The movie illustrates the racial tension that existed in suburban Paris in the aftermath of the riots. The movie is said to have predicted the 2005 riots, so I do believe it was somewhat visionary and that is what I thought of my ensemble. The movie was shot in black and white which gives the concept all away. However, unlike the the movie I try to show that in fact black and white can coexist and complement each-other in this look.
