No market rules
TXT: YOSS PHOTO: RÓMULO SAns MODEL: YOANNE
The market doesn’t rule here. Two Cuban designers forget the god ‘Sales’ and allow their fantasies to fly free. Each of their creations has something fresh and ironically fun like unique, one-off works of art. No need to go the route of so many leading magazines and construct false and sweetened stories in extravagant and supposedly ‘magical’ scenes to justify their work. Each photo and each design tells its own story. The magic comes from the daring, experimental minds of the designers themselves, the professional sensuality of the models and the unique contrast of Havana backdrops: the most ordinary scene in the world for those who live here, the most exotic for those who would like to. Welcome to a dream of fashion. read more
