The Way of Byzantium: religiously fashionable

Marco D’Amico and Romina Toscano allowed themselves to be completely seduced by the entire notion of frontal stylized presentation of figures, a concept easily placeable in the ancient Byzantine religious paintings; so much in fact that they decided to keep the essence, switch up the setting and evoke new circumstances so that formality could lightly be reinterpreted as fashionability in their latest editorial.

And where lies challenge, the results become all the more fascinating. Case in point: the cutting-edge vision that plays upon some of the Eastern Empire’s most striking characteristics, including the use of rich color with a special emphasis on gold, and the love towards a rather sumptuous decorative style translating to luxurious looking woven, embroidered and beaded surface embellishments. Balancing the heavy styling envisioned by Marco Grisolia, Antonio Ciaramella’s icon-inspired hair and make-up felt candescent.

With an entire team of stylist’s and photographer’s assistants behind, fashion editor Romina Toscano (www.studiodmoda.it) managed the unimaginable and explored the religious consciousness with pure grace and elegance.

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.
