I first met Kimee Brown at a DC fashion/art show in a warehouse last summer. I loved what she was wearing: a Karl Lagerfeld for Macy’s t-shirt before it was released to the public. Since then, Kimee has never looked the same twice; her diverse, eclectic, and thoughtful style is a testament to her effervescent personality.
When she approached me a few weeks ago to create a short film to commemorate the online and social media launch of neon V, I was immediately excited. Neon V is a magazine founded by five women, three of which I was already well acquainted with: Kimee, Stephanie Mills and Michelle German, plus Tanekeya Word and Carmela Wingfield. I love taking photographs of Stephanie because she is incredibly photogenic, creative and positive. Michelle, has always surprised and delighted with her fashion, and most notably with her makeup.
This film was shot by me in one night last week and is based on a concept developed by the ladies of neon V. I had so much fun scouting locations and during filming. These ladies broke into spontaneous coordinated song and/or dance numerous times and generally pervaded the entire undertaking with positivity and love. It shows in the end result: this is a film that I am very proud of. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it.
