Shadae Lamar Smith directs a video for, Lioness, Ms. Banks and Lady Leshurr that fuses fashion and music, in a collaboration between UK fashion brand Pretty Little Thing and media.

As such it makes a strong statement that challenges the idea of "Pretty" by placing fashion in urban industrial parts of London. It also does this by using black female rap artists as centers of style instead of traditional fashion models.

Shot with the artists around Brixton and Peckham in London, Joel Honeywell doess his customary excellent job with cinematography, with Shadae Smith giving the piece the feel of fashion editorial with the photography motif, and split-screen effects.
