It’s safe to say we’re totally mad for Mimi! An insta-famous model, at just 21 years of age Mimi Elashiry is making her mark in the modelling world – defying all current industry standards as she stands at just 5 foot 9! With over 869,000 followers on Instagram, people are getting in line to see the part Australian, part Egyptian beauty as she teams up with a multitude of Aussie talents. This brings us to her recent collaboration with local Adelaide artist, Georgina Solomon of SSOL.Creative.
Adelaide based photographer Georgina Solomon (also known for her label LASSKAA) first worked with Mimi in Bali and the two stayed connected ever since.
“It was such a delight to hear from Mimi late last year when she reached out, loving a pair of shorts that I had designed. We caught up over lost time and then planned to shoot in Sydney!”
Challenged by the thought of photographing one the most divine models she had ever worked with, Georgina set out to make this one of her greatest works. Sourcing Underwood Street as a location was the base of her creative direction. She then mustered together some of the finest brands, artists and creatives to bring the shoot alive.
Even though the shoot took place in Sydney, Georgina still made use of her local connections by sourcing jewellery from homegrown labels and even having a LASSKAA logo necklace made specifically for the shoot by Zephyr Lestrange. After years of talking collaborations, Georgina enlisted cinematographer Luke Eblen (also an Adelaidian).
“The coolest thing about this shoot was how naturally it fell together and how connected everyone involved was. Both the cinematographer and one of the band members from the Kimono Drag Queens had visited the property before,” explains Georgina.
Since the shoot took place, Georgina has made a huge transition in her career journey. Only recently she closed down her label to pursue her dream of acting and is now using the branding of her label LASSKAA to represent her wholeheartedly as a creative – photography and styling still being a main focus.
First available via Sticks & Stones Agency, we are thrilled to be able to share some of this enchanted shoot too. We look forward to watching this imaginative and inspiring artist grow!
