When I slid into @vavimami's DMs
by Pauline Poderoso
You know when you lurk an IG and your like "damn i like your feed" and "these selfies are cute," but you can keep lingering and realize that not only does she have her grid on point, but she's also an amazing artist, working on shit, doing her thing, featuring other beautiful women, and has curated a lifestyle that inspires and motivates you? So now your like "whoo is she??". So naturally, I smashed the like, slid into her DM's, and went to the next event she was a part of and found out more about Vanessa.
Vanessa Vigil is a 21 year old Bay Area based artist who amazingly photographs everything from film, fashion, to music, and curates her own projects. She recently had an installation up at American Steel Studios in Oakland, CA for the event FEELS, a huge yearly party that gets big artists like Antwon and Ryan Hemsworth to play. But Vanessa's basically bad AF on her own terms. Here's our interview pre-FEELS:
