Setting the scene at Greater Limassol's (Kalavassos) Allure Dream Stables, Cyprus-based photographer and art director Maria Borissova and her team create F Word's latest animalistic fashion editorial, Beasties. A play on the word besties, Beasties follows eight characters; they are Anastasia Demianenko, Christina Pavlou, Christos Evzonas at The Modern Society, Dinga Christian Fohtung, Eleana Georgiou, Elena Pesotckaia, Mariia Chernysheva, and Toulia Angeli, all living harmoniously in a commune shared with horses. Styling by Polina Evina captures current fashion trends through a mix of independent and luxury designers and SFX makeup prosthetics by Maria Lankina bring the beasts and besties to life.
