To create Hannah’s backstory I had to do quite a lot of research. Firstly, how the journal would look like inside. I surfed Pinterest how girls usually design their journals.

Project 2 Singapore Diary
(I forgot to take pictures of the final product, and I gave them away to them as a gift)
For this project, I approached some of the people in the Harajuku Fashion community and did a photoshoot with them; one set of photos in their “normal” clothes (normal is relative), and another set of photos in their elaborate outfits. I also Read more →
