The new K1X Shorty collection shoot was recently directed by Mallence Bart Williams in Los Angeles. Many of the female dancers in the vibrant L.A. “krump” scene were the first to sport the new Shorty styles while photographer Rozano Johnson documented their daily grind. Some of the featured dancers like Tiny Mite, Lil Mama, Bambi, Lady MC, K.K. and the notorious Miss Prissy were made immortal in 2005 by David LaChappelle’s wonderful film “Rize” – and make the new summer catalogue especially appealing. Of course, Ashlee Desire -the personification of K1X Shorty- was also in the thick of things when the crew roamed through South Central, Venice Beach, Downtown, Watts, West Hollywood and the canal at 6th St. Bridge to do what they were born to do: dance!
Here’s a taste of what’s to come … see the whole catalogue here soon!


A.Desire aka a dream come true: “Dancing is like making love… when you start you never want to stop!”


Bambi: “There were times when krump was therapy to me.”


Tiny Mite: “Krump dancing is a way to let out your spirit, a spiritual contact between you and GOD!”


Miss Prissy aka The Queen Of Krump aka Multi Talent: “Dancing is my outlet to artistically express myself. My body is like a paint brush making strokes across the skyline.”


Watts Up!?
