RAELIGION is the corporate-world name that [Kayla] Rae Holmes, 20, slaps on her adventures in photography, design and styling work.
Since the age of twelve, Rae has had a near unhealthy (is that possible?!) obsession with the world of visual arts. Taking photos of herself and her surroundings with her point and shoot camera, she would teach herself how to use programs like Paint Shop Pro and Corel to edit and manipulate images until she was old enough to save for her first DSLR (Canon 1000d) and enrol in a part time Film Photography course while she studied at high school. After school she continued her photography studies full time for another two years.
Although no longer studying, Rae’s passion for photography remains just as strong and while on gap break from work and study, her interest in fashion turned from something of a casual hobby to a die-hard overdrive of wanting to involve herself in the fashion industry.
Rae has a natural talent with styling clothing; something she’s always done for herself and been praised for by friends and strangers alike. Although her own personal style could be described as dark and edgy, Rae has no problem creating the perfect outfit for any occasion. From floaty, feminine dresses to suits and ties, Rae indulges her ever-keen creativity to make the most out of the clothing she has to work with. She also enjoys fixing and altering her own clothes in her spare time but hopes to begin designing her own clothing in the future.
Rae draws inspiration from many different faucets of life and has an incredibly versatile style. She loves to shoot unique and thought provoking images as much as she loves to help others do the same, which is where she steps in as a collaborator for styling and design.
