Dawn Richard is one of the most underrated R&B singers in the game. Perhaps sensing this too, Solange Knowles’ R&B label and cultural website Saint Heron recently interviewed the New Orleans-bred singer and shot an accompanying photo spread to give the talented singer some much-deserved shine. And just in time for her new record too!
Shot by Brandon Hicks and with words by Nia Porter (Dawn Richard’s cousin), the mastermind behind the collage-style spread is Armina Mussa, creative director, fashion designer, and boutique owner. Right off the bat, I loved the boldness of Dawn’s marigold coat paired with sleek black hair and glittery, white flatforms. The patched-together style lends the images a psychedelic quality, which mirrors Dawn’s style of experimental R&B.
