NYC native Danie Sierra draws from her Nuyorican upbringing to inform her artistic practice. In the early stages of her career, she worked as a personal shopper for a popular streetwear label, later expanding her practice into creative directing, modeling and styling. During the photoshoot, the stylist steps away from boxy and oversized street styles, experimenting with voluminous, floor-length dresses for an ethereal, dreamlike aesthetic. â€œFor Cassandra, I wanted her to be super femme, which I donâ€™t usually do much in styling. I usually draw inspiration from streetwear and menswear. It just reminded me of back home â€” greenery and Caribbean island life. I knew I wanted to play with bright colors, different knits and leather. In reality, we donâ€™t really wear that [on the island]. Itâ€™s too hot, but I knew I wanted to layer,â€ notes Sierra. Contrasting fabrics, like cotton dresses, summer-ready linen and knitted midis, paired alongside Nelmsâ€™ hair art bring dynamic flavor to the trioâ€™s initial concept. Departing from her work in menswear, Sierraâ€™s styling direction celebrates the vivid colors and textures home to agave with graceful effect.
