Model Veronika Rusakova stars in Annie Li's stunning editorial exclusive for The Ones 2 Watch. The talented designer showcases her graduate collection in a photo series by Natalie Fong and collaborates with makeup artist Javier Romero and hair stylist Cash Lawless to bring her eccentric vision to life.
Titled 'The Daydreamer,' this collection by Annie Li references famed children's book The Secret Garden. The piece by author Frances Burnett is known for its dreamlike imagery and a story set in the English countryside.
"My design philosophy is inspired very much by my emotions and the connections I draw between myself and art," says the designer when describing her creative process and the vision behind her whimsical apparel line. In addition to its Secret Garden references, this collection is also a subtle homage to flower child fashions of the 70s.
