Collapse, collide: lady in waiting

The editorial shoot by Wiktor Franko and Antonina Dolani for Confashion Magazine gives the notion of a female waiting at home for her beloved. She possesses a neutral yet longing expression; her surroundings are that of a complex and traditional home. Her body language suggests quite a bit of time has gone by; maybe he’s not coming back? She wears soft yet rich fabrics that suggest evening attire.

The lighting throughout the shoot is somewhat sad, and we cannot help but feel sorry for the lady in question (Samia @ Fashion Color) Could this be her life, waiting around in mirror embroidered mini dresses, or noir jumpsuits with crown-like headbands? Is she the Queen which the King never came for? We hope he’s on his way… those outfits are too elegant to be waiting around watching paint dry!

A fashion magpie born and raised in London, Sabi Datoo studied English and Drama and now works in the wonderful world of fashion. Lusting over anything from interiors to jewellery as long as it's unique, when you don't find her infront of a keyboard plying her trade as a freelance fashion writer then it's likely you'll find her sitting at a sewing machine and dreaming of Carrie's fashion-Narnia wardrobe or in a kitchen trying her hand at Chanel inspired cupcakes. With a personal wardrobe that drips with colour and glitter, Sabi hopes to wake up and be Holly Golightly for the day. Every day.
