Anyone who has lived in a bustling city knows that it takes time to feel rooted and connected – especially in a place as diverse and massive as Los Angeles. While life in the city can be a difficult jungle, those who strive to survive find that they can grow in the most adverse of conditions. This photoshoot, titled “Blooming in the City of Angels” by photographer Dali Ma, focuses on beauty and growth amidst urban decay.

Though the surroundings are cold and harsh, emphasized through skillful manipulations of light and color, the structure of each photo places attention on the statement pieces which evoke both softness and strength. One of the striking things about this collection though is not just the floral fashions but the models wearing them. One appears fierce and flirtatious, the other is pensive and probing – both could simply be women you pass on a busy street. While they seem guarded and gritty, the fashion contrasts this by suggesting that behind their fierce exteriors is a quiet strength.

Through its use of light, color and location, this spread showcases the complexity of an individual’s ability to bloom in harsh surroundings. When all elements of the collection are placed together, they serve as a reminder that while growth may not always be obvious, it is present and attainable.

Photography for this photoshoot was done by Dali Ma. Models for this shoot include Jaimi Nelson and Porscia Eve. Makeup and hair was produced by Lulu Bernal.
