Fire in the sky, flames in the deep

There’s seemingly no end to the beauty that can be created when fashion dives into the depths, literally. Sometimes creating a breathtaking underwater shoot comes down to brilliant makeup that shines through the weight of the water, sometimes the wow factor is aided by reflections and ripples and waves. The only thing that you might say is mandatory is a wardrobe of flowing gowns and diaphanous fabrics that shape-shift into ethereal forms when they enter the aqueous depths. After all: why opt for body-conscious cuts when you have the opportunity to create images like these?

And by ‘these’ I’m referring to the images of Michael David Adams’ (michaeldavidadams.com) magical underwater world, where fire withstands submergence – because there’s no putting out the flames that are model Cecile’s hair. Where water isn’t blue, but a blackened sky against which Cecile is both burning sun and pale white moon. Where bubbles are a sprinkling of stars.

Beautiful to behold, and with makeup by Mary Irwin that compliments the red of Cecile’s hair, you can view all of the underwater shoot by clicking on the gallery.

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.
