“The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape…” -Picasso
Alexia Jay is a well known face on Boston’s beauty, fashion and cosmetic expression scene. Her work is a constant reminder that any true artist has the ability to blend seeming contradictory elements, to create an aesthetic pleasing body of work. Alexia is a Creative in the truest sense of the word. Everything she touches turns to gold. Alexia Jay is Black Girl Magic.
Recently she invited me to be the Set Assistance for her Femme Noire beauty photo shoot. Needless to say I was in heaven. Fashion, Hair, & Beauty all in one place? It was like have a slice of paradise. Alexia was very thoughtful and thorough when it came to each look for her project. I’m so excited to share the final photos!
Flawless, aren’t they? I can’t even pick a favorite because I love them all. I had so much fun watching Alexia’s vision come to life. No great photo shoot is complete without a great team!
