ABOUT

XAiLA, formerly known as Hatti Rees, is a multi-disciplinary British Artist. Since graduating from the Womenswear course at Central Saint Martins, XAiLA has directed many editorials for magazines such as Vogue, PAPER, King-Kong, LOVE and DAZED. Hatti also worked as a beauty editor for LOVE magazine and at Marc Jacobs ITL NY. Driven by a need to challenge a social stereotype or identity, Rees is focussed on hybridity and re-imagining traditional archetypes. In their Dazed Beauty Artist Profile, XAiLA attributes their 'chameleon-like personas' to a need for fluid expression whilst challenging social perception of the body, identity and gender is the ultimate goal.
