Special thanks to up-and-coming plus size model @tinderoni 💕 We are very honoured to have you as our 1st model of #curvesinasia house project.
Tinder grows up as the 1st generation Indian American in her family’s household.
She inherits two diverse cultures – traditional Indian family values and the liberal post-feminism American womanhood, at the same time owning up her very own identity as her true-self evolves. It is definitely not easy to pilot two completely opposite cultures at the same time, but time will tell what feels intuitive for this gorgeous and hardworking female model.
Tinder is visiting for work from LA, lucikly time allows us to have a full day off with her, so we shot quite a combination of outfits this time. On the day of shooting, it was before a typhoon that goes through Kong Kong so it’s extremely hot and humid.
It is always a big challenge for us who sweat a lot! 36C with 96% humidity, the extreme stuffiness really suffocated us.
Wearing the iconic offshoulder @eloquii trench coat dress, @tinderoni exudes confidence and elegance
We thank Tinderoni for her professional endeavour, because without her expertise as a model and her patience, this shoot won’t be successfully done. We managed to get plenty of shots within 6 hours and we are forever grateful for it.
This is our first editorial completely produced in-house, thank you to our collaborators below,
