Above Magazine

Today me and Marie discussed ideas for styling for our group matchbox photo shoot. Marie had found some beautiful imagery in Above magazine: a fashion story based around the idea of eco friendly concern. The styling in the images took me straight back to my idea of looking at the four elements-earth, air, fire and water. From this shoot me and Marie spoke about our concept and maybe using the eco styling as an ironic hit at consumerism and commercial styling and fashion.

We decided that we would make natural twig headpieces as in the found imagery, the model wore an amazing and very striking headpiece which we wanted to try and recreate. In terms of linking this with the mannequin idea, Moira had the idea of superimposing the mannequin (acting as the consumer society) over the model styled with natural ‘products’ (our ironic hit towards consumerism). In the shoot from Above magazine, the model had been styled with very little clothing: just some simple jersey stretch leggings, some jewellery and customised headpieces, both myself and Marie liked the look of the jewellery in the shoot, the contrast of the metal circular shapes against the naturally formed headpiece is interesting so we also thought about bringing in jewellery into the shoot but mostly natural jewellery.
