A stark contrast can often be the best way to make a concept jump from the page and into the romantic gardens of the viewer’s imagination. Like a vision of sophisticated evening glamour pitted against an industrial surround. Romance and rivets. Diana Melfi executes this contrast to perfection: the Penelope Curtisrn styled sequin mermaid dresses, the billows of silk, the graphic prints and soft splatterings of colour on silk. All spotlighted against rust, iron, and chimney stacks reaching into the sky like ancient fingers.
The pristine hair and makeup by Pia Lorena Bedregal add to the contrast.
