It was at a cabaret show in Capetown earlier this year that I could finally purchase these eccentric ‘Moulin Rouge’ accessories that I always wanted to have. As soon as could make some time out back in Lagos, I called my team together to create a shoot around them.
I called Ify (the model), Zubby (for hair styling) and Eni Lise from BOM Magazine (for Make up). Together we spent a great day just experimenting and being creative.
Towards the end we wanted to get this smoky feel of a cabaret. Without a smoke machine at hand I got my team to help out with real cigarettes. It caused a lot of coughing and red eyes, but for the picture it worked!! ;-)
Enjoy the images.
