Dark Visions: the kind of shoot that takes you to another world

Fashion shoots are often about fantasy, but not every shoot sucks you – mind and soul – into it’s darkly constructed world. Amber Gray’s shoot Dark Visions does that. You believe it. But more so do you marvel at each and every talent brought to the mix by the creative team: are these images showcasing the intricate and theatrical makeup artistry of David Tibolla? The breathtaking hairstyles and headpieces that merge into one, both born from the kaleidescopic mind and steady hand of Jakob Sherwood?

Or is it a vehicle for showcasing the talent Gray posseses behind the lens, or the vision of cinematographer Julian Bernstein?

That’s before even getting to the fantastical styling (Ise White) and jewel-studded, glitter-covered nail art (Julie Kandalec).

So if none of those things is the star of the shoot, it remains a feat wholly attributed to the gestalt: each element makes up a greater and more magical whole, and therefore each image is not just a work of art but a study in the art of team work.

With no detail unattended, the world created by Gray & co is one you can easily get swept away in. View the full shoot Dark Visions by Amber Gray (ambergray.net) for RELAPSE Magazine by clicking on the thumbnails. You can also watch the matching video below.

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.
