20 models, unquantifiable beauty

If John Ciamillo’s photo series for issue IX of Bambi Magazine seems like an eclectic mix, that’s probably because it is. The shoot features no less than 20 models and while you can search hard for a narrative, you won’t find one. In fact no narrative is needed. Instead it’s like a chocolate box sampler of Ciamillo’s portraiture works; a set of seemingly unrelated images tied together with the thread of a trademark style. Each one represents Ciamillo’s preference for capturing raw, natural beauty because, as he describes it, capturing the girl is more important to him than capturing fashion.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
