THE OTHER SIDE OF ME
AN EDITORIAL BY SERGE FILS-AIMÉ
When you google search phrases relating to the fashion style of this shoots concept, for example, “leather fetish fashion shoot” all you see are white models. The same goes for the porn industry as well.
My focus is to express that Black model, period, are capable, able, and are just as sexy to model in this fashion aside from white people––in ways where we are in control of our sexuality and likeness; not fetishized for fantasy.
So, I want to open it up to all genders/orientations, if that’s the case.
To make the concept whole, I’ve cast gay/straight men and women, and trans women.
