Practical Paradise


Fashion Editorial and BTS Video

Practical Paradise is an exploration of juxtaposition and playful expression.
— Shadna Aum

[Practical Paradise] is a streetwear fashion editorial produced for Ugly Magazine Issue 09. Ugly was looking for a spread that was playful and showed off street style in a studio setting. Paired with imagery of tropical plants and leaves, we created a mood that was unconventional and a lot of fun. 

Seen above is a  little BTS video used for promotional use. This collaboration took a large team working together to make this visually unique piece.  The finished project became a central piece to the Ugly Magazines' dynamic Spring 2014 issue.
