During our previous conversations preparing for the shoot, Nefatari informed me that she had recently walked in the Sonja By Sonja Morgan Fashion show during New York Fashion Week. To open the show Nefatari wore a gray fur hoodie jacket that she felt I would like to shoot her in. She also let me know that other pieces from Sonja’s collection could be made available for the shoot.
Here’s a slideshow of Nefatari in 3 pieces from the Sonja By Sonjay 2020 Collection.
