Local Designer Khandi Ray Launches Documentary Series
St. Louis-based designer Khandi Ray launched her documentary series, “Behind the Style,” on YouTube last week as a collaboration with fellow St. Louisan, photographer and filmmaker for the project Jessica Page. The series will release two episodes per month and chronicles Ray’s life behind the scenes as a self-taught fashion designer and artist.
The first episode is a look into Ray and how she made the move into fashion, with the following episodes to dig a bit deeper into the Khandi Ray brand, from the creation and design of the pieces to behind the scenes footage from photoshoots and events. “The world of fashion is already a beast in itself,” says Ray. “My goal is to encourage self-taught fashion designers that anything is possible through hard work and faith.”
