A sweet escape in the secret garden

There’s nothing more enticing than a fashion spread ready to hand you the key to a hidden world. As we’re permanently seeking a sense of wonder, looking to escape, one way or another when ordinary life confines us too deep in reality, a secret destination becomes all the more irresistible. Rich, luxurious and touched by old glamour, the secret garden making Lior Susana‘s photo shoot is a place where time appears to have stood still. It’s a world within a world, with scenery echoing the lavishness of the garments.

Once in, you’re instantly blown away by the Gatsby-like extravagance, by the old soul of the Borromeo palace, by the paths and alleys brimming with history. Ida Windeballe Pedersen appears to belong to that universe, having her majestic beauty and effortless grace guiding her every step.

But then again, how else could one look wearing Valentino’s resplendent designs, Daniele Carlotta’s splendid floral and sheer gowns, or any garment really carrying the signature of Bottega Veneta, Marni or Ermano Scervino, as flawlessly styled by Marina Bugranova and Barbara Centazzo?

Featuring gorgeous hair by Matjaz Siska and beautiful make-up by Einat Dan, you can view the complete shoot by Lior Susana (liorsusana.com) at the gallery. Discover the behind the scenes video below:

Shaped by all things beautiful and feminine, Nicoleta Parascan’s first steps towards entering the captivating world of fashion were taken somewhere around the young age of six, when she received her very own first fashion magazine. Discovering an entirely new universe, filled with pretty ladies and beautiful clothes, there was not much able to ever beat or compete with the fantasy land that was suddenly opening up. Surrounded by books, constantly thinking about the next best outfit, in search of a signature style and defined by a nostalgic calling towards the past, Nicoleta believes in taking chances, in destiny and in building her own path in life. When she’s not writing, you can easily find her playing with her cat, reading an old book, watching movies, exploring the city or blogging her own daily adventures.
