I am the co-founder and director of NY storytelling studio Noir Tribe, which creates visual content for the fashion industries with a special interest in sustainability and social responsibility.
Our work has been featured on Vogue Italia, Vogue México, ELLE México, NYLON Español, Harper’s Bazaar Bulgaria, Harper’s Bazaar Brasil, and Glamour. Awards include Best Documentary for Peyote Dreams at the International Fashion Film Awards and Best Cinematography for ETHETICS at the Mercedes-Benz Bokeh South African International Fashion Film Festival.
In 2016, while attending the Mercedes-Benz Bokeh South African Fashion Film Festival in Cape Town we shot the first two episodes for ETHETICS (ethics+aesthetics) an ethical fashion film series in partnership with the ITC’s Ethical Fashion Initiative – a flagship program of the World Trade Organization and the United Nations.
ETHETICS premiered at the BAFTA-Qualifying Aesthetica Short Film Festival and premiered online at Vogue Italia. It won Best Documentary at the Panama Fashion Film Festival, Best Designer/Brand at Fashion Film Festival Milano (also nominated for Best Documentary), Best Styling at Mexico Fashion Film Festival, and Best Cinematography at Mercedes-Benz Bokeh South Africa Fashion Film Festival, where it was also nominated for Best Fashion and Best Documentary. It was also nominated for Best Fashion Short of the Year at the Academy Award-qualifying Short Shorts Film Festival & Asia in Tokyo.
In 2017 I produced Dressed For Protest: The Women’s March and Beyond, a short documentary in association with The Women’s March on Washington – NYC Chapter and Glamour Magazine. It premiered at Fashion Film Festival Milan in the #FFFMILANOFORWOMEN special screening and is also an official selection at FASHIONCLASH Fashion Film Festival in the Netherlands and at Miami Fashion Film Festival.
Most recently, Noir Tribe was the featured visual artist at the Inexmoda BCapital fashion event in Bogotá, Colombia. We were invited to create a fashion film for the opening night, where we premiered the fashion film POLITE presents I Am An Individual, which celebrates unique human identities through five personal stories of love, appearance, friendship, empowerment, and dreams. Each chapter is a true story, told to us by the models themselves, inspired by their own life experiences releasing from life’s labels, stigmas, and conventions. The film is an official selection of Fashion Film Festival Milano, Copenhagen Fashion Film Festival, Berlin Fashion Film Festival, and was nominated for Best Fashion Film at Canada International Fashion Film Festival.
