Ladies in waiting: a ministry of fashion

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).

Born into the humble town of Franschhoek, South Africa it was little wonder that Chevaun Roux would find her flavour in life through good food, good wine and stylish apparel. After completing a Bacherlors Degree in Politics, Philosophy and Economics the world of freelance writing became the first choice in occupation, with no regrets and having never looked back. With a zest for anything with colour, vibrance and essence she found herself diving further into the world of fashion and design; from thifting vintage wedding dresses to pouring through new and modern jewelry pieces. This self anointed bohemian indentity believes in all the partisan revolutionary ideals of love, beauty and freedom, and when she isn’t writing or editing you can find her at the kitchens helm creating her latest milkshake masterpiece.
