A Conversation with Vanessa Acosta of Wasi Clothing

  

"Designing with indigenous, hand-woven textiles means that you are working with sacred materials. Before I dove into this brown-owned business, I had to check myself. I had to be sure I was doing it the right way. Ethics and social consciousness are important to always keep in mind when getting into a business venture in fashion."

Armoire Mag Exclusive: Jean Meziere

 

Photographer: Jean Meziere 

Edits: Jeannot Quenson / @swoonyjean

Medium: Film 

 

We are honored to feature this unpublished series by renowned French Photographer Jean Meziere (1946-1986) 

These photographs were created in the American southwest in 1982. Using slow AFA film, mainly Kodachrome 25, Meziere was able to capture the intensity of light in a profound way. His work became characterized by strong color saturation, and a crisp level of detail due to the film's fine grain. Nearly thirty five years later, with restoration and edits from Meziere's son, Jeannot Quenson, this artist's unseen works are making their premiere appearance in Armoire Magazine. Read more from Jeannot Quenson on Meziere's life and art linked below.
