Thru the Lens: Fashion Photographer Piper Carter
A fashion photographer and co-owner of 5E Gallery in Detroit. Carter was the first African-American woman to shoot for French Vogue and British Elle. Her work has also appeared in the New York Times, US Weekly, and other noted publications.
Piper shares her style and fashion sense:
STYLE SENSE: “My [look] is simple and organic but I am a huge funk diva at heart,” she says, citing Erykah Badu, Lisa Bonet, Zoë Kravitz, and socialite Genevieve Jones as her favorite fashionistas.
IN HER CLOSET: Carter adores designers with Detroit roots such as Tracy Reese, Eugenia Paul, and Femilia Couture. She also has a deep affection for Charlotte Ronson, Vashtie Kola, and the late Alexander McQueen.
