what's happening ? what's going on ?
a sort of challenge ? or just ideas without any control other than you can post only ONE story at a time - with the following rules: you need a theme, a story (a good fashion editorial tells a story, has character-s!), and you need a team :
models (you can invent them on computers. we are in 2014. or post a list and pics of them), photographer (you can be him/her if you post some proofs/portfolio of your work), make-up, hair, and stylist (obviously you are him/her!) etc. ....
I guess if you have a software like photoshop and stuff, it is easier to create collages so we don't have tons of images (this website is FULL with images - a lot of them in the early pages being broken - some IT guy should look at this...).
I don't think I have photoshop, still... so I don't know how this picture thing should be.
i haven't really checked all the shows, but i'm really obsessed with "community-garden-urban-farm-pastoralism" and stuff lately.... so i could think of a story for this.
Some Like It Hot
^Lets do it, I don't have PS so will post looks and ideas as separate images like before..
I think if we have a loose theme and we can interpret it as we wish?
Shall we do a designer retrospective as our first challenge? something easy to get the blood flowing.
Ooh never got to take part in this...and my mind is always over-working with editorial ideas.
'A Lang Summer's Day'
Published in: US Vogue
Photographed by: Bruce Weber
Styled by: Moi
Make-Up: Gucci Westman
Model: Aya Jones
^ Hair and make-up is a variation on this look, maybe a bit less baby strands of hair??
Inspiration: De-contextualising Helmut Lang's iconic, way-paving clothes 10 years after his departure from fashion, the story is shot in conventional Weber style on a beach in Miami. Bright, lightly saturated colours with a few separate influences incorporated into the shots...
Pages 1 and 2:
On the left Aya stands in a sculptural pose, in front of blue sky, S/S 2002 dress worn over S/S 2001 dress with skirt blowing in breeze.
Right hand side an image of glistening waves rolling onto empty shore.
Pages 3 and 4:
On the left page Aya leans against a palm tree near the shore, hands behind back, looking into distance. She wears F/W 2001 suit with draped top and sandals (on Oluchi) from S/S 2001.
On the right hand page she sits on a chaise longue near her thatched beach house, one knee up with book in hand staring into lens (closer up shot). She wears S/S 2001 bra top with F/W 1996 trousers and S/S 2005 shoes.
Something like this under an awning or somewhere shaded...

Pages 5 and 6:
On the left Aya stands in front of foliage, wearing S/S 2004 dress (without glove). A dragonfly covers the back of her hand which is in close proximity to neck and perhaps another one on other hand. Darker lighting, face forward shot up to knees.
