VOICE OF INSIDERS holds a vision that the brand is not only for its fashion-forward yet functional aesthetic but also the FDA-approved Celliant technology that applied in the brand offers the wearers energy-return, faster recovery time, aids in oxygenation of the muscles. Dancers, whom put their bodies under intense stress daily need clothing that is visually attractive, protective and functional. In fact, said veteran Parsons dancer, Geena Pacareu, from Barcelona, Spain: "Voice of Insiders collection is comfortable and has a level of sophistication that suits me. As a dancer, it is the perfect blend of freedom and stand out design that I look for in dance-wear." The shoot, directed by photographer Travis Magee, took place in an industrial-style loft in Long Island City, NY, where the dancers were shot in a myriad of different poses, both static and in motion, to represent the wearability of the brand for any occasion. The collaboration is to fuse freedom and aesthetic, to blend street culture and contemporary art.
