Jessica Blakely shoots The Real Laww

Creative Director, Cady Childs, designed and created the ladies' style, for her clothing line, First Edition, which received such raves at the Durham fashion show, reFASHIONED.
Inspired by old black white movie visions of damsels in distress, but wanting to flip the patriarchal script on its head, the Clarion Content team set out. The spooky late afternoon light was perfect. Halloween and Fall felt right around the corner.
We strove to highlight, as we always do in our Fashion Drive-by's, how ephemeral and constructed the line is between high and low culture, safe and unsafe Durham. We want to take familiar scenes of Durham and re-envision them. We want to use real people as models. We want to shoot them in affordable fashions. We want to surprise you with what you will see, if you take a second look.
The teaser shots are coming soon, all photos were taken either at The Cordoba Center for the Arts in the Goldenbelt Complex or along the Fayetteville Road-Elizabeth Street corridor.
For a second look at some of our previous Fashion Drive-by projects shot on location in the secret gardens of Trinity Park, inside some of our fabulous night spots, in Watts-Hillandale, in Lakewood and on the Bull City Connector, click here. (and scroll down)
