Sofia Zakia Editorial

Hi! Earlier this summer I got to collaborate with my friend Sofia on a little editorial for her jewelry line (last time we worked together was when she first launched the brand two years ago!) and it was so much fun. Everything she does is hand carved, and made entirely by her out of materials like rose gold, opals, and every fancy stone out there. 

Check it out below <3 

You can view more of sofia’s jewelry on her website: sofiazakia.com & instagram : instagram.com/sofia.zakia

Steph as me

When I was in London in January I got the chance to stay in Steph Wilson’s AMAZING space and hang out with her bird Tomato, so of course I took some time to take some photos of her for my “me vs others series”.

Here’s some of the images we shot together :) 


& here’s an interview I did with teen vogue that was published yesterday :
