Lagos based art director and stylist, Daniel Obasi has released a stunning fashion film titled ‘Embers of Bloom’. The film which features clothes from African designers; Gozel Green, Titi Belo, FRUCHE and Gogoya is a visual experience taking you through the simple moments of two young girls, expressing themselves through fashion.
There is a refreshing simplicity that accompanies the film. Between the abandoned swimming pool as the backdrop and the girls sporting pinafores, court shoes and ankle socks – the innocence of girlhood and the quiet femininity of womanhood is captured perfectly. In a conversation with Daniel, who directed and styled the film, he says;Inspired by friendship and the fantasy of becoming someone else through fashion. The film is a visual experience of what finding your self could look like, a momentary realization and escape through emptiness, expressions and metaphors into something different, something that makes you bloom!
