Alejandra Quesada




In January this year I was lucky enough to be invited to Mexico City to stay with designer Alejandra Quesada. After discovering a mutual appreciation of each others work, she asked me to shoot her latest collection . The trip was a great success, I shot several stories, including portraits of new Mexican talent for i-D magazine. I also got to avoid the winter blues for a few weeks and made a great new friend. 
We bought all these amazing creatures in the local craft markets, and used them in the shoot. I now have some living in my house as a reminder of a great trip. Mexico is a truly inspiring and colourful place, now I just have to go back for Day of the Dead. 
Thanks for everything Ale xxx
You can see the shoot under the 'advertising' section of my site.
