Cosima - Girls Who Get Ready
A few weeks ago I was on a video set surrounded by my friends, family and an incredible team.
It was really special to see girls who are so wonderfully themselves, who I love together on screen, sat around my living room table in between shots.
Directing this video was a dream, and together with some amazing people we made a video that I’m really proud of and excited to share.

Peckham-based singer, Cosima has been busy creating art and then filming more art to support her art. The talented creative recently debuted her latest track 'Girls Who Get Ready,' which is out now via Island Records. And today, the 22-year-old artist released her self-directed clip for the song, which features her friends and family.
"I wrote this song when I was seeing someone who had very strong opinions on what made a woman desirable," she said in a statement to The FADER. "I realised that I had also picked up very strong and destructive ideas on what made me deserving of love. I remember I was halfway through straightening my hair when I snapped and thought: fuck this."
