“The concept for the editorial is about a new generation of university graduates, that were unable to graduate in the traditional way of attending a big ceremony due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Alternatively, many ceremonies and proms were cancelled and were substituted with digital exhibitions and remote celebrations on Zoom. I wanted to bring real importance of feeling that real self-achievement you get when graduating from academic institution. As I additionally bring a different meaning to a graduation party from home. Picture this… You are all glam for this special occasion but also wearing your sleepers, or with your hair half done but combined with a funky top and pyjama bottom.”
