Teetering dangerously close to the edge is daunting. What happens when you fall? You may plunge hard and it may hurt, but on the other hand you may just be forced to fly.
Playing close to the edge when it comes to fashion is not unlike anything else in life. Bold fashion choices can be dangerous. But take the risk and it might also pay off. Richard Machado’s shoot The Edge reminds us of that fact with its bold directive that plays with the geometry of fashion – and isn’t afraid to live on the edge.
Machado’s shots engineer a sense of the future with their digital distortion. Model Atong Arjok could be a life-sized hologram in the New York-based photographer’s story, which features pieces from the likes of Herve Leger, Bill Blass, Louis Vuitton and Missoni, boldly styled by Aline Pimentel.
Photographed for issue 28 of FASHIONTREND Magazine (fashiontrend.com.au), which is on shelf now, you can view more of the shoot by clicking on the gallery.
