Rose Water is a fashion line Paradise Khanmalek designed through PAOM.com (Print All Over Me). Over the past few years, Paradise captured, collected, and published an on-going series of photographs taken on glistening sun-lit walks through the neighborhood. Paradise mainly capture plants, shadows, and moments of neon, glitter, or fluorescence caught in the natural(and artificial) world. These photographs have served as the well to design my PAOM line.
Last year, Paradise won a PAOM endowment to photograph my designs modeled by people of color, plus size beauties, and lovely people in my life who fall outside the confines of white beauty standards. Paradise then collaged, drew on, and transformed the photos to marry the uplifting, colorful, sun-lit ecstasy slowly harvested on these walks, with a body-positive, experimental, and complex portrayal of beauty and fashion.
