Even through cornrows are a traditional African style ,
I will always remember Bo Derek in the Movie "10 " what an impact she made on me so beautiful ,
I wanted to create a cornrow style with metal chain African style with a black model but add some thing more to the concept ,
so added a metal mesh around her neck and some wire across her breast .the idea was to create these in black and white as I felt the silver of the metal would show so well on her dark skin and they did ,
I managed to get black model Patience from Venice Beach CA to work with me I felt she was perfect for this concept and just loved her personality , also wanted to get my makeup artist Elise to do this as she is a Hair Stylist as well .
