Keeping it fashion, what a time to be alive, even in the midst of everything going on in this world, fashion still thrives and keeps the hearts warm.
Speaking of the warmer times and sunshine, hailing from the Middle East meet an upcoming creative soul Yasmine. Self-proclaimed political DJ, Photographer, Designer, Artist and a Young Brand Ambassador, Yasmine’s aesthetic is on a whole new realm.
The Lebanese-native presents the struggles of the middle east through her brand Prince Politique. A strong representation of a girl fighting for her rights. How equality is still the biggest topic. Her latest work of fashion is a bomber jacket with a photo of Benazir Bhutto, the late first female prime minister of Pakistan on the back. We had the pleasure of asking her about her latest fashion (political?) statement and this is what she said:
“The brand is a representation of politics in the Middle East through visual art mediums and through fashion. The whole point is to represent the trendy bomber jacket with a clash. The woman in the back of the jacket is Benazir Bhutto, a dedication to her during her election campaign in 1988, Pakistan. She became the first female prime minister of an Islamic country. I edited this photo with an Arabic text asking “Where is my government ?”. I have yet been able to see an un-corrupt government around the world and especially in my own country. The photos taken with a jacket were made with love and profound thought. I, a girl, can be a Prince if I want to be. Prince Politique is a not just a brand but a movement for all. If you want to fight for freedom through art, then grab a jacket.
She explained “I am 22 years old, from a Lebanese background. I never use my last name so I go simply by Yasmine. I apply political studies through art mediums for my own peace of mind. I produce music which has been published on Khabar Keslan’s magazine for Middle Eastern creatives. I have fallen into photography when my closest friend gave me a camera to ease my loneliness when I was away from home. Every picture I take is a representation of my dreams. I try my best to express my opinions through mixes and digital artwork rather than writing or speaking because we’re all built differently”.
These photos were shot by Yasmine on a Persian Carpet in the desert appropriately naming it the “Desert Girl For Prince Politique” collection.
Take a look at the jacket below and be sure to look out for her this year.
