The New Stereotype (TNS)

The New Stereotype (TNS)

The New Stereotype (TNS) highlights and celebrates the many diverse layers of black life in America through fashion, photography, and film. With each installment, a different part of life is explored through the lens of fashion. This particular installment, Bedazzled Crown (BC), is an ode to the old saying, “heavy is the head that wears the crown.” Shot in Washington, DC at National Mall, it includes photography by Olushola Bashorun and video direction by Davis Northern.  Seven women share a piece of their life journey and celebrate body diversity, sisterhood, entrepreneurship, and beauty through the lens of fashion. The heavier the crown means there is a greater responsibility and added pressure. Black women uphold their tenacity and valor yet do it with poise and grace. You can find out additional details surrounding the previously released installments on the creator and creative director Marquelle Turner’s website.  With Roxanne Paul (@_rox.anne_) and Bree Wijnaar (@thetallsociety) leading the charge as Co-Creative Director, different shades of melanin, heights, and shapes were celebrated.  See their pictures and watch to peek into how these queens define what a queen is made of…
