Nadine Ijewere, Tonne Goodman capture Portland’s beauty for Vogue!

These days it seems every other fashion editor has Jamaica on their mood board, and we don’t fault them, The Rock is a hot commodity.

What’s even better is Jamaicans rekindling a love lost on the island.

Prime example: British Nigerian photog Nadine Ijewere – whose mother is Jamaican – capturing her version of Jamaican style/beauty through the lens of her vintage aperture and with the expert styling of American Vogue fashion editor Tonne Goodman.

Loop Lifestyle is pleased to share visuals from any story that made the cut for international glossies such as Vogue, Dazed, i-D, and countless other publications.

The images are striking, and despite being created by a predominantly American team, present an apparent underlying "Jamaican-ness".

They are slated to be released in print in American Vogue's March 2020 issue. But, several team members have shared their personal faves from the shoot on IG. See a few of the gorge pics below...
