The campaign visual was premiered at Soho house France during Paris Fashion Week,
Filmed in Paris, the visual follows Ysaora clad in Daily Paper apparel as she she connects with friends and family and shares her journey. In a noteworthy moment, Thibus states, “For me, as a woman in this environment, what I am trying to do is break codes. If no one tells you you can succeed as a woman, you wouldn’t even dare try. If no one ever tells you or shows you that you belong as a person of color, it becomes even more complicated.”
