Story about this shot
The last encounter of the triptych kind - for this month. And also the last one I did in London.
My main experience in London: You never know what you get - that chocolate box thing. I met people who were actually too shy to even talk to. Imagine that. Even though their clothes were so flashy and screaming: “triptychsofstrangerize” me. I’ve made different experiences in Hamburg and Paris.

I have serious plans to continue in October and I might add one or two new cities to the roaster.

About this stranger
Meet Kharise Francis who is an up and coming artist ready to blow the fashion world away with her brand titled after noone else but: Damn right - Kharise Francis. A name that sounds everything but ordinary, maybe sophisticated, but ordinary(?): not so much. Sophisticated like the style of womenswear I recognized that sunday at her “stall” at Old Spitalfields market! Add original, eclectic, feminine, chic and preppy your are right at it.

Kharise targets the extroverts with her work. She could be one as well - according to her style you might not have any doubts here. But after our brief encounter I wouldn’t say so. I experienced her as calm, down to earth and unobtrusive - in style.

Get a feel how she sees the world and where I met her - tumblr.

Kharise Francis is just 22 years old and after working for the industry for a few years, she now is self employed. You can find her works all over the web even dated in 2008 - that’s quite a lot for someone at her age.

Her relationship status is single. While others get worried, this situation won't lead to problems in her life. “A relationship can be a burden in a city like London, especially if you don’t command yourself to just one sex like me. This simply doesn’t make sense to me.” (laughing)

Creativity surrounds her. While showing me her work, I had a constant feeling she puts a lot of passion and energy into fashion and especially her brand.
Who else could she be than just: The Kharise Francis herself.
