The delicate renderings of an Aztec maiden

Attention to detail, delicate depiction and fragile precision. You can’t help but notice all these fine inclusions throughout this ethereal and exquisite photo shoot by Amani Faiz.   With the artistic value reminiscent to the Aztecs these elaborate headdresses are so intricately refined that each piece commands your eyes to travel back and forth in an attempt to devour all the finer and smaller touches.

Model, Ebony, is represented in the constant glow of allure and repose – with an almost ease behind her gaze. Allowing you to find beauty and solace not only the attire that she adorns, but in the state of mind that she represents.

Make-up and hair done by Nicola Johnson is culturally charged, with the same notions of tribal influence and Aztec art forming central focus on the face: the black marking along the lips, the pinnacle spots beneath the eyes, the delicately drawn illustration along the cheekbone and a splash of golden colour along the lips. These designs of black lace and golden aluminum, created by Suzy O’Rourke, signify a lasting grace; a royal precision behind the delicacy and femininity found within elaborate female allurement.

Born into the humble town of Franschhoek, South Africa it was little wonder that Chevaun Roux would find her flavour in life through good food, good wine and stylish apparel. After completing a Bacherlors Degree in Politics, Philosophy and Economics the world of freelance writing became the first choice in occupation, with no regrets and having never looked back. With a zest for anything with colour, vibrance and essence she found herself diving further into the world of fashion and design; from thifting vintage wedding dresses to pouring through new and modern jewelry pieces. This self anointed bohemian indentity believes in all the partisan revolutionary ideals of love, beauty and freedom, and when she isn’t writing or editing you can find her at the kitchens helm creating her latest milkshake masterpiece.
