The 'Rise Of The Amazons' photo series centers around fierce fashion and fiercer women. Strong, independent and empowered, these models are not only making a claim on edgy yet feminine outfits, they are also showing people they are not ones to be messed with.

Shot by Hamburg-based fashion and beauty photographer Julia Kiecksee, the Rise Of The Amazons photo series shows off her signature style simply and beautifully. Bleak and dark, there is nevertheless a sensuality that pervades throughout the shoot that really celebrates what it means to be a woman.

Although this year fashion has taken a sleeker, brighter turn, the Rise Of The Amazons photo series shows that people can still embrace heavy and bold embellishments such as straps and spikes.
