Punctuated by voluptuousness, exuberance and elegance, this quintessential fashion shoot by photographer An Le expresses the lush and gushing expressions of beautiful women cladded in contemporaneous fashion.
Fashion editor, Do Manh Cuong, carries forth an idea of antiquated apparel with a contemporary portrayal. Exaggerated platform heels paired with overstated collars and ruffles are seen throughout each outfit. The use of white cloth wrapped around the heads of each of the models gives the impression of holy women, bound by the culturally confining requirements that history dictates. Manh Cuong plays around with this – the impression is implied but still the sexual and sensual nature of each woman comes through (aided by the make-up work of Charlie Vo Quoc Anh).
