For Vogue Hong Kong‘s November 2019 cover story, Nick Knight and stylist Anya Ziourova teamed up to create a soulful set of images and fashion film featuring a figurehead of contemporary London modelling, Adwoa Aboah.
Shot as if through window panes fogged by London rain or the Hong Kong climate, model Adwoa Aboah wears a selection of the A/W 20 season’s most grandiose gowns.
Adwoa Aboah blossoms in the likes of Alexander McQueen, Vivienne Westwood and Marc Jacobs in an ode to the grit and glamour of the metropolis in this fashion film.
Filmed and edited by Raquel Couceiro and Myles Henrik Hall, and with a soundtrack from Camden musician Bakar, this film embodies the attitude of the city.
