adidas Originals x Girls Are Awesome Role Models – Dessie Jackson

Girls Are Awesome and adidas Originals have partnered around a top to toe product collection and to increase the representation of women+.

Straight outta L.A., Dessie Jackson is a mixed-media artist who portrays female sensuality in a powerful and uncompromising way. Her advice? “Keep making bad work and show it to people.” Work through it!

“I think it’s important to make bad work. You have to make bad things. You have to do mediocre things and you have to SHOW PEOPLE THOSE BAD AND MEDIOCRE THINGS”

As part of our global partnership with adidas Originals, we ventured to L.A. with the aim to increase female representation in the art scene. We were lucky enough to meet, hang out with, support and film this awesome crew of 5 humans, including Dessie Jackson. Just as we were planning the opening of their group show, our project was unfortunately hit by Covid-19, so we didn’t get to live out that part. Dammit! But we’re thrilled to have had the opportunity to capture some insights into the minds of these Los Angeles creators through these short video portraits.
