Finding purpose is different for everyone, and Anie Delgado fights her anxiety by expressing herself through fashion and music.
Her latest single “Cloud9,” is a beautiful, angelic upbeat song portraying her journey of self-discovery. Having a Cuban-American background fueled her dual passion for music and fashion after taking inspiration from her family and culture. “My Abuela was a seamstress back in Cuba,” says Delgado. “My aunt, Rosemary Cassidy, ended up going to Parsons for Fashion Design.” Cassidy, who styled the video, has been an Art & Creative Director with titles in Glamour, CosmoGirl, Life & Style, and brands like Nordstrom, Wet Seal, Bebe, Charlotte Russe, Too Faced, and more.
“I have always dressed loud and eccentric. I was known for wearing high heels to school in middle and high school. I felt out of place, so I wanted to make a statement. I wanted to create a world where I felt like I belonged.” – Anie Delgado
The ethereal music video was directed by Brandon Buczek (LA Film Fest, Oaxaca Film Fest), and the song was co-written and produced by Sam Nicolosi (Warner Chappell Publishing, Seeking Blue Records). Throughout the video, an angelic ambiance is felt in each outfit as she transforms. Every scene is a poetic showcase of the fashion pieces, making a statement as she dances alongside Camryn Eakes, lead dancer for Latin pop sensation Sofia Reyes. In the video, she uses high fashion brands like Dolce and Gabbana, but as a firm believer in sustainability, Delgado rented and thrifted each item seen in the video. Delgado herself launched a fashion line through KLLECTION and designs all of her own unique merch.
