Fashion has many vices, it has many perceptions and many angles. The softness of the feminine form can often be overcome by the edginess of the fashion that adorns it, or visa-versa. The point is that the extension and reach that fashion has is not bound by any one perspective or point of view. Photographer Kim Buckard pairs the notions of alternative fashion with stylist, Ani Manukjan.
Buckard and Manukjan revive the outlines inspired by geometric shapes and architectural designs to create a fashion collection that mixes in with the world of elegance but creates difference with its notions of edginess, as one would see with the alternative use of punk design. The focus on fine lines and the smoothness of the skin on model Lotte Uvt combine to create much of the dominant features within this photography shoot. Drawing the eye towards the lines of contrast and the colours of combination throughout each portrait.
Hair and make-up, done by Danielle Trilsbeek, keeps in line with the smoothness and sleekness of the fashion as a whole, drawing on the muted and eclectic colours of white, lilac, black and bronze. The material and texture within this fashionable exhibition is varied and diverse, working with a range of displays that fashion and apparel can hold.
