D∆WN continues to push the envelope, and that’s exactly what she does in her breathtaking new fashion film, “Wake Up,” which she co-directed with Sasha Samsonova.
Donning stunning costumes, including majestic wings, golden ram horns, yellow hair, and a revealing beige top, Dawn Richard dances through a post-apocalyptic world with her all-female squad.
“Don’t wake me up, I’ve been dreaming of you / And this love ricochets from me to you,” she sings over the house track.
She spoke with NPR about the inspiration behind the video. “With this era, I want to highlight the marriage of fashion, tech, and sound,” she explained. “‘Wake Up’ is a fashion film inspired by Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and the Faun and the Phoenix narrate this whimsical dream that you don’t want to wake up from.”
