Paper Couture by Chineza

This weekend I got the opportunity to shoot a collection of dresses that are made from recycled newspapers and encyclopedias.   The dresses were made by aspiring local designer Chineza Augustus.   We needed a cool location for the shoot and Newstead kindly allowed us to use their pool area.  Thankfully the weather cooperated and the high winds that were forecast never occurred

We assembled a fairly large team of familiar faces:
Models:  Desiree Riley and Courtney Davis
Designer: Chineza Augustus
Stylist: James Lee
MUA: Christopher Vee
Hair: Maria DeBraga
