When Agenda approach me being a part of The New Chieftains I was so honoured since I am a big fan of his photography, skills and his mind. I met Agenda a few years back when I first moved to London when he approach me to model for him. I did a few shoots and the result was always spot on ( See images below ). What I didn't like ( at the time ) is that he always said to me while shooting: "No Jazzy, Im just testing the settings right now..." So I obviously I didn't pose as I normally do and he managed to catch ( without me knowing ) me just being natural. Now, thats is exactly what I do like about his photography. He don't just capture an amazing picture, there is life to his photography and he captures peoples souls.

Meaning of A New Chieftain:
"The New Chieftains are a unique tribe of talent who embody tenacity and resilience. They are non-conformists whose instinct to succeed is driven by passion, instinct, endeavour and challenge. These qualities, alongside the way in which they approach life and work, amplify their unconventionality. They can be found in many different arenas including education, design, philanthropy, food and music. The New Chieftains do not cut corners in an effort to succeed."
So we did the shoot in my room, where all the magic happens :) This is where I style myself, create new things and develop ideas and constantly working so I thought it was the perfect spot for us to shoot. In the picture below you can see a few of my key things in my life when it comes to me and my creative work: My macbook, my sewing machine, my mannequin and off course my life moodboard. This represent me and Im so glad he captured everything in one pic.
I had a chat with Agendas sister Daphne on the phone and we ended up chatting for ages. She sums me up in beautiful words and I am thankful and also happy to be able to share this with you guys!
JASMINE FURELID - STYLISH STYLISSIMO
"Brave little warrior she is not. She does not care who may stop and stare, as the creativity that comes from her is worth it. She shows many faces; who will she be today?
Daring to push boundaries laid before her, 'a trier' not design to quit Jasmine comes boundlessly with a cool energy dunked in the softness of her heart.
The Stylish Stylissimo knows her subjects reading them telepathically, getting into their psyche crowning them in their full glory. But where is her crown? Though her road has been tough she has walked thrugh it in her own tenacious way looking only towards her inner self as the ultimate guiding light.
Always continue to be you Jasmine. "
You can now pop in to Nude Espresso, 26 Hanbury Street London to see the massive canvas of my face and the rest of The New Chieftains hanging on the wall. I did get pretty shocked first time I went in since I didnt realise the canvas was that big! It will be there for another 6 weeks so make sure you grab a coffe and enjoy the view of The New Chieftains!
