D∆WN Takes Us Into Her Dreamstate In ‘Wake Up’ Fashion Film!

Let’s take a trip into the world of D∆WN, shall we? Following its release last month, D∆WN Richard has premiered the breathtaking music video/fashion film for her latest single “Wake Up,” which she co-directed with fashion photographer Sasha Samsonova.

In the clip, we see the singer-songstress rocking stunning costumes as she channels two personas, the Faun and the Phoenix inspired by Shakespeare‘s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, to narrate us through her post-apocalyptic dreamstate, where the fashion goes hard and the dancing goes even harder.

“I met up with Sasha Samsonova on this, who’s done amazing photography work with Kylie Jenner,” D∆WN told Jon ALi. “We worked together on this and really pushed to make this about fashion with the emphasis on avant-garde fashion. It’s been slept on, at times people think it’s too much but I come from the love of Grace Jones and Bowie. I wanted this to be out there and beautiful but still have it be relatable, so its a great mixture of the basics and avant-garde world. We catered to design, beauty and fashion. I’m super excited for everyone to see it.”

I got the chance to speak with D∆WN yesterday (June 9) so be on the look out for our interview soon!

    I’ve been slayed and my edges are gone!!! lol. This song is a major eargasm and I can’t wait for her new album. I love that she pushes boundaries and doesn’t allow herself to get pushed into R&B only. She can still keep her RB roots while fusing other sounds that she is influenced by! 🙂
