The H&M brand sister store, & Other Stories will feature transgender models in their next campaign ad.
Transgender models Hari Nef, 22 and Valentijn De Hingh, 25 are set to be featured in & Other Stories forthcoming athletic-inspired collection.
& Other Stories’ assembled a talented team for the campaign consisting of photographer Amos Mac, makeup artist Nina Poon, and stylist Love Bailey – who all happen to be transgender.
De Hingh has collaborated with many creative teams, but this is the first time she will be working with an all transgender group of creative artists.
“That’s something I haven’t experienced with other shoots, per se, where I’ve worked with other teams, other models, multiple girl stories, where you work with each other professionally and you like each other and have good conversation, but it’s not the same thing as working with an all-trans team,” De Hingh toldWWD.
The & Other Stories athletic collection is set to hit stores August 20.
