Ive been needing to do a shoot for caheri's closet. This time i was thinking a little optimistic.
I want to take pictures of girls modeling the clothes, the girls who i want to participate are ideally girls from Oakland, girls from the hood.
Why might Iwant this specific group of girls?
because , growing up in oakland ive known alot of girls who are very much part of that " i dont give a fuck" lifestyle, wearing hoodies and jordans and hair tied in a bun.
In reality these girls arent ugly in fact they are gorgeous. Deep down inside I know they wish they could be all fancy but some of their peers or neighborhood wont allow them to explore that.
I think its necessary.
It all struck me when i was at the mall shopping at a girly store and this girl from the hood said "hey caheri wasup!" I looked up and realized it was her, in her hoodie and sneakers.
I said "hey pretty girl"
immediately her eyes lit up and she couldn't help but smile. I realized then that these girlswhy not? because in our town its more important to be hard, know how to throw a punch and be respected,have street credibility opposed to being classy and educated.
dont get told theyre pretty too often.
I speak from experience , when i was asked to become a model for a clothing line back when i was in myI want to give that feeling to these beautiful girls who DESERVE attention, theyve been through so much actin' like soldiers, its time they get pampered and appreciated and let their guards down and just smile.
"i dont give a fuck" stage , I couldn't believe it. It empowered me , it made me feel so good about myself.
Any ways we need to get this party started because people have been requesting more pictures of the clothes and accessories im selling, but because my daily schedules are packed i havent gotten around it.
I have some girls in mind already , but if you feel like you would like to suggest someone or become a Caheri's Closet model PLEASE feel free to contact me
