I thought I would share the latest photoshoot that I did for my mini-magazine for for my MA course at the London College of Fashion. My idea comes from 'The Virgin Suicides' of innocent young girls that day-dream and have lazy days, unaware of the world that surrounds us because 'innocence' is the sweetest thing. The model I used looks beautiful and was absolutely perfect for the shoot.
They also have metal buckle fastening to give it a festish-esque edge, which makes them even more daring to wear. I am in love with all the colours, but for me, it is difficult to find a pair in a 42 (although they do them in this size).
Check out the Chloe store on Higher Sloane Street and Net-A-Porter.com because they have them in stock, but be warned they probably will not be around for long because Net-A-Porter are already selling out! Prices start from £318.00 and they come in small, mid and high heels (they are also available in flats).
Metallic is going to be a great trend for this Spring and Summer and will look great for your Christmas party, because you can party with this trend into the New Year. Designer Erin Fetherston has created the perfect party dresses in beautiful crisp silver metallic to create an ethereal look, so you too can look like an innocent Christmas angel.
These deliciously girly dresses come with either ruffled straps or, if you are feeling more daring, go for the sexy one shoulder dress. It is a great time to wear metallic pieces because it oozes glamour whilst being sophisticated, look for metallic pieces in silver or gold. If you choose to go for a dress make sure the hemline is above the knee, thin straps and not skin tight, you don’t want to look like Liz McDonald from The Rovers Return in Coronation Street. Or go for a slinky, low cut, loose vest top and wear with a good pair of skinny jeans and when the summer comes you can wear it with denim mini shorts.
Make sure your accessories are kept light, metallic is a statement itself and wear with neutral make up (you don’t want to look like a drag queen). Or seeing as it is Christmas wear the ‘frosty’ make up look as seen at the Erin Fetherston show (above). Wear this trend correctly and all eyes will be on you at the Christmas party and for the correct reasons too!
My new MA Fashion Journalism is demanding and for a task I've had to undertake a six page magazine photoshoot (with a particular magazine in mind). I have gone for a underground punk/skinhead rebellion look and here is the finish product...well, the front cover at least! I will post the other images soon.
The collection is full of wonderful and beautiful prom dresses and sexy playsuits in gorgeous kindergarden colours of pastal pinks, yellows, blues, greens as well as the hint of metallic and the use of the all-American 'red, white and blue' that is symbollic of the good ol' US of A's flag.
Anna Sui's S/S 08 is looking 'punky' and 'bright', setting of the futuristic look with a 70s and 80s twist we have a 'nu punk wave' on our hands. This is a fun collection consisting of bright and even pastel colours of purple, pink and yellow - but it is contrasted with a juxtaposition of dull colours such as grey and the usual 'black and white'. There is also a juxtaposition of patterns too with stripes being contrasted with animal print or big bold ethnic style patterns.
What is also unique about this collection is that seems to be also influenced by the 1960s and 1930s with a modern twist on monotone and flapper 'style' hats, not forgetting the 'Bugsy Malone' inspired jumpsuit creates an edgy touch. The collection is somewhat complex as the patterns work against each other, but also work together. Dresses are short and flirty, put offer a comic 'pop' feel to the look - like a cartoon world that does not work as heavily like the land of Japanese Harajuku fashion.
There is also another complicated twist of mixing the 1940s tea-dress with the 1980s 'big sleeve' look. However, the dress that I adore is the green and white stripe mini-dress with the wonderful material hanging from the waist with a gorgeous brooch. Whereas others might prefer the more 'sultry' and slightly 'gothic' metallic look within her collection that is both sexy and a great twist from what we will be seeing this F/W 07.
Overall the collection is totally eclectic due to the mix of generations that is clashed together using neon bright, pastals and dull colours and various patterns and stripes. The use of bright wigs gives the look a punky and futuristic look and the use of the 'high-waist' keeps the collection in the following form of the 1970s trend, the ankle sock finishes the look of nicely with an innocent twist.
