Colour, light, texture, emotion and ornate revivals create a photoshoot so profoundly exquisite that it is difficult to imagine anything beyond this regal fashion still-life shot by Aaron Feaver. The regality and splendor behind this lavish rendition of fashion creates a dramatic aura of luxury and desire. With the notions of simplicity and minimalistic décor so obviously pushed aside, this gorgeous shoot comes together to create a story for the eyes and in the mind.

Stylist Marissa Peden makes use of all the baroque notions of rich fabrics (velvet and silk), elaborate designs, embroidery and the fine touches of gold and silver. Each portrait fulfils the look with one elaborate piece placed upon another; vivid head pieces sit upon beautifully decorated hairstyles, golden cuffs placed upon silken gloves, dramatic makeup obscured behind opaque veils and intricately decorated dresses made from richly textured material.

Everything speaks to the lavish side of life, the abundance within fashion and the materials and styles that can be used to promote such a magnificent and irresistibly decedent lifestyle. Feaver and Peden bring these notions to life in a fashion shoot that appeals to the regality within every woman, and reflect the kind of implicit desires that lie within us all.

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.
