In these works from my first collection I aim to express how modern girls easily metamorphose themselves using make-up and fashion as their tools.

In your journey through life you meet lots of different people with different ideas of what defines beauty. Each attracted to a different aspect of your personality. Make-up and fashion allows a girl to change and adjust whenever the need arises.

This is what the photos express. A girl can show herself as strong, as cute, as elegant. Her possibilities are endless.

Modeling was done by Yumi Murakami. She also did the styling. We found it difficult to take photos in the dark underground parking lot, but it was much fun.

Every girl is good at lying

To lie, she changes her appearance

Skirt fluttering in the wind

Crimson lipstick

Fishnet stockings on high heels

These are a girls’ armor

Her body pretends, but she looks you straight into the eyes

Mistress of Deceit

Thanks, Gique. You’re glad you were born a girl, because you can be a mistress of deceit, or because a girl can show herself as strong, as cute, as elegant. Her possibilities are endless?
