Ravanui Lucas, former Miss Tahiti, had the project in mind for a long time: regrouping her beautiful friends (some of the finest Polynesian women) to recreate some classic images inspired by the Vahines from the 60's. With the help of friend and artistic director Heiarii Robson, Ravanui designed and organised each scene's stylism and accessories. Nelson Labbey brought them to life. Make-up artist Orama Noble and Tehina Mou transformed the Polynesian beauties into real "60's stars" and hair stylists Maryse Utia and Cowan Brodien did an amazing job of re-creating some of the most classic 60's hair creations.
We hope the result will inspire you as much as it inspired us.
