AMELIE

Posted On 10.26.2014

Meet Amelie, newest addition to the new collection for my currently-revamping closet. Jeans are a bit boring unless they have a bit of a twist on their style. Take this one that I bought from River Island for a very considerable price. I love the way it hugs my thighs and legs even though it's a bit long that there's a need to cuff it. I was about to purchase the black and gold platform that was on sale but ended up with this one. No regrets though, just love.

FASHION EDITORIAL: PARASITE IN SKIRTS

Posted On 10.22.2014

Our first ever editorial that we made for the styling workshop. Definitely, it is the LBD that our professor was talking about. It has been made/used like forever for fashion editorials. The challenge? Create a unique editorial, think outside the box and present a fresh editorial. 

This is what we came up with. Inspired by the mug shots of femme fatale criminals back in 1920's, hence the title, parasite in skirts. We used muted colors to make the editorial a bit dramatic and give it 1920-ish vibe but with a modern twist, adding the denim jacket and making the LBD into a skirt. 

What do you guys think?

FASHION STYLING WORKSHOP DIARIES: WEEK 2 REMEMBERING THE PAST

Posted On 10.20.2014

Pink Manila All the right angles dress

Topic for the 2nd week:
Charles Frederick Worth, the father of haute couture. He owned a salon where he would present his creations to his buyers/clients and gave them catalogue where in each dress was sketched and there are also swatches that can be found on the book where they can choose and customize what they want.
He dictates what his clients would wear.

What's the relation of this in being a stylist then? As a stylist you DICTATE. You direct what your customer would wear, what should look better or not. You direct.

Assignment:
1. Editorial of your aesthetic
2. 1920's dress/clothing that changed the course of fashion history and is one of the most difficult to shoot. (This would be on a separate post.)
3. Create a moodboard (photos, fabric, etc) and forecast what will going to be the next trend for the November issue. Interpret it in to a fashion editorial. (produce just one photo)
4. Collage of stuff you'd never want to wear.
