The 'What's Underneath' Series

by Style Like U

The 'What's underneath' project is an incredible series of candid interviews. Each person sits to openly share their truth, their turmoil, their lessons and their evolution.

The project sets the scene for people to dive deeper into all of their mind patterns, thoughts and vulnerabilities; all while they are removing items of clothing, to ultimately end up in their underwear.

There is great power in speaking about those nasty thoughts and uncomfortable issues instead of keeping them inside. You will see the transformation in each person from the beginning to the end of their interview.
