in trying to find a way to encompass our multi-hued, oft-diverging lives, I’ve created four distinct femme prototypes to represent My Brooklyn, 2010.
meet Jada, Randi, Joan and Petrah. creative, empowered women ready to take on the streets - but coolly aware of what managing the streets might take.
