MY PROJECT : A small collection, primarily based around optical illusions in print & colour. I explored how I could use these to best enhance the body's contours. My pieces are very detailed, and tailored to fit the body; they include embroidery, screen printing, puff printing, layers & even a printed lining! The print has been inspired by London's less iconic buildings & architecture, looking at their structural & shaping similarities to our own contours. There is also a slight Op Art feel about them.
THE PHOTOSHOOT : I am hoping to do a photoshoot/lookbook for my 3 outfits - a leotard & chiffon skirt, & two dresses. The garments have intricate prints & details on them, all hand produced & are tailored to fit the body's curves. The photoshoot will most likely take place in the studio, with influence from the Mary Katrantzou Resort 2014 lookbook. It will be bright with a slight dramatic contrast. 2 garments will be shot in black & white & one in colour, for the only coloured garment. The mood is strong, confident, expressive & fun. Make up will be simple & flattering, with glossy, slick hair.
THE MODEL : I am open to a range of models, however you must be confident in front of a camera, and you may be asked to model the leotard. Also take a look at the Katrantzou lookbook : LINK AVAILABLE TO VIEW UPON APPLICATION. I like how the models personality is slightly coming through in the shoot, this would be great too!
TO APPLY : Please leave your email & a photograph with your reply & I will email you back with more information, photos of my project (so you will have an idea of concept) & we can discuss when/where is the best time for a photoshoot & any other questions you may have.
