I have been working on a women’s fashion line for Explode la Mode event in the Mission, San Francisco. I tried to inspire myself, not in the spirit of the latest trend, but in how my symbols could come to life on a human body. You can see the full shoot on my new website www.fridalarios.com, in the meantime I leave you with one of the shots.
Photography by Tyler, my gorgeous husband.
Model: Raquel Lorenzana, my Salvadorean cousin.
