EYES & EDGE: How do you stay directed in your creative vision?
Masyn: I honestly just try and create what I’m feeling for that day or just in the moment. I love putting concepts together and just letting the rest fall in place. I don’t force anything. It never comes out right when it doesn’t come naturally.
Masyn: I really want to push a non binary modeling. I love modeling for not only men’s, but women’s. Or even gender neutral clothing (also my fav)!
The future is fluid and so is fashion. Clothing does not define ones gender. And if one thinks so, I believe it says more about the person than the article of clothing.
Masyn: I always give it a purpose. I like to tell a story with every editorial or play a certain character with every outfit change. I also feel that making the model/creative feel comfortable and in a carefree environment. I won’t be able to fully express my body movement if I feel uncomfortable or just not in the right state of mind. Music and conversation is important when I’m on set. I need to feel the rhythm so it will show in my body language, and hear stories.
With the photographer, there needs be vulnerability and you only get that with me if I like you or you’re paying me. No in between.
I hope to also just break the binary of the fashion world. We need actually body, queer, and POC representation and we’re not getting enough in 2017. I won’t settle for just one black girl on the cover every few months.
