Bibo Aswan ‘My name is Katya’

Stylist Armand Dicker teams up with photographer Bibo Aswan in KL, Malaysia for a cheeky candid shoot with 3 fruity babes.

“While on contract in Malaysia we met Inky Machkinis & immediately fell in love with her eclectic personality. We sadly didn’t have time to shoot with her during that trip, but 3 months later we went back for fashion week & decided we weren’t gonna miss the opportunity again. So we arranged an impromptu shoot with local Malaysian photographer Bibo Aswan. We conceptualised a candid & cheeky story featuring pieces from Thai label, Lala Love, my own South African label DICKER & Inky’s favourite thing, fruit!

While shooting we were inspired by Inky’s incredible movement & eventually, all of the models in the apartment came to support & watch. Everyone was feeding off Inky’s energy & one after another the girls were roped in to feature in the shoot. The name of the editorial came to us when Inky pointed out a speech bubble on one of the Lala Love collage swimsuits which said in Russian text “My name is Katya”, we found it really funny & it stuck! By the end of the day, we were all smitten with each other.”
