Photos: Christelle de Castro’s Austin Diary



Christelle de Castro used to be Opening Ceremony's Director of Photography. Now she's a full-time multidisciplinary artist, working on books, magazines and heavily YouTubing in between. She came to this years FADER FORT by FIAT as GHE20 GOTH1K's hype girl/soccer mom and brought a point-and-shoot along for the ride and captured sweet shots of Diddy and Cassie, Wiz and Amber, Big Boi, Theophilus London and a Deville in the parking lot.

If you think Austin in Spring is all side-swooped bangs, generic indie bands, and/or cowboy boots, then you've never experienced the FORT. I got to shake hands with the legendary DIDDY (!!!), posed for a pic with Amber Rose, got Wiz Khalifa's autograph for my little brother, became BFFs with Killer Mike, met half-Filipino sister Cassie, and repped the BAY with Lil B, Young L, and O.T.
