"This is fashion – Archer Magazine style. Three models who proudly identify as transgender or non-binary, a handful of inclusive brands, and one solid creative crew.
With us, diversity comes first, and that’s something we have in common with the brands, people and studios we work with. In this editorial, photographer Leila Koren plays with light and latex to showcase gender-diverse models as deities of our time, soaking up the spotlight they so deserve.
The thread between our models was confidence, pride and strength of identity, so we designed looks that would exemplify these traits, while showing off their individuality and sense of style.
We included some behind-the-scenes shots as a reminder that all images are constructed, and to show off our awesome crew.
The looks are fierce. The feeling is joyful. The result is reverent and radiant. We hope you enjoy it."
