Discotheque revival

It’s time to celebrate!

Well, for FashionTrend magazine at least, as the Australian publication is ready to launch its 25th issue. They’re celebrating this silver birthday with an impenitent discotheque-culture revival. A theme less visited with the recent outburst of sixties minimalism, but when night falls there’s no doubt it’s a theme that’s still going strong.

Photographed by Amber Toms, this photo shoot and cover image are a lethal combination of high-glamour and affirmative exaggeration. It’s a recipe for an ultimate dance party with the correct dose of sexual appeal and confrontation.

The 1970s-inspiration is fairly obvious, as liquidated fabric and high-voltage, electric colours outshine the wooden backdrop. All modern pieces, including cropped pants, leotard with strategic cutouts and sequin dresses, have been styled with a twist of Studio 54 vibe. The accessories are as loud as the bold eye make-up, without leaving any scope for timidity. And, of course, if there’s going to be a dance-off on the floor, a crazy voluminous hair-do is absolutely vital.

The message here only being that if you’re planning on making a statement, don’t shy away from painting the town in every colour of the rainbow. No one will judge or doubt your theatrical attitude.

You’re the queen of the night so flaunt it, why don’t you?
