"Bonafide Youth" is a conceptual editorial spread positioned as a feature for W Magazine. The spread is a juxtaposition of classic 1950's fashion trends with modern edge. Models sport varsity sweaters paired with edgy graphic-tees and saddle shoes adorned with metal studs. The collage-inspired spread takes you through a tale that transcends time: A young girl puts on her make-up in the parking lot of the football game, a group of friends celebrate a home-field victory, and a young couple wakes up by the sun rising on the 50-yard line. The spread creates a union of generations by featuring timeless fashions and emotions while simultaneously acknowledging the passage of time.
