MIRROR is a multi-disciplanary project and self-published magazine of fashion, photography, and stories that are “A Reflection of the Black and Latinx Diaspora”.

︎ Roles: Creative Director, Photographer, Designer and Editor in chief.






Magazine


By subverting the typical magazine format, every page of MIRROR was created with the intention to dismantle white supremacy and systematic oppression within the media, fashion and photography industries.



Design

 
It’s design, advertisements, photos, featured fashion, editorials, writing, all the way down to the title – are created by the BIPOC community and speak directly to the complexities, intersections and nuances that truly reflect our community.


Photography


Six models of the Black and Latinx diaspora were interviewed and asked how they would want to see themselves reflected within visual media. Our conversations became the inspiration for MIRROR and for the photography.





Fashion


Their stories inspired photoshoots with the models, then those photos were printed on fabrics and designed into a fashion collection.






The Process


This extensive photo series and fashion collection became the content for the magazine. Below is a rough explanation of the long process of MIRROR.







Augmented Reality for Social Media



By scanning MIRROR Magazine’s pages (using the camera on Instagram or Facebook) the 3D version of the photo comes to life through AR.





Below I'm simply testing out the Augmented Reality feature by scanning a digital page of MIRROR Magazine (on my laptop).





The show



MIRROR began as my Senior Thesis Project and was showcased within the ︎2020 MICA Experimental Fashion Show, ︎2020 MICA Commencement Exhibtion, and the esteemed ︎Serving the People BFA Show 2020.
