Precious metals with industrial flavour

For as rough, unpolished and unconventional as it may first come to sight, a futuristic industrialized setting ticking under a bright, blue sky is quite the perfect note of contradiction to be added to a steam of precious metals. All the more so when the metallic threads serve to build the most exquisite gowns and other equally showy silhouettes awash with femininity. Bearing the attitude…

They say everything is allowed in the mesmerizing universe of fashion, as there is no right and clearly no wrong, just a deluge of creativity changing the world one step at a time. And it’s the vision that sets the stargazers apart from the creative spirits deeply anchored in a strong sense of reality. Recreating an apocalyptic sphere and letting imagination run its course, photographer Steve…

Jena Dover plays the sexy dame for Gaschette

Fashion and acting are not at all dissimilar; in fact you might say the two are inextricably linked. Fashion helps create a persona, a character, and that’s true for all of us whether we’re models or actors, funfare ride attendants or dental clinic receptionists. So for South African born actress Jena Dover slipping into the role of a sexy BDSM mistress wasn’t just acceptable, it…

Bride of Zion

The fields of the arts collide in Bride of Zion: visual arts melding with music and fashion to yield both a photoshoot and a film clip. The campaign started as a showcase for the fall 2012 collection of brand Rayne, but evolved into a music clip for The Frown’s song Dark Art – with the band’s lead singer Eve Rakow as the star.

Nokia aims for popularity by association

Nokia came to mean a lot to an entire generation because it was fashionable. As they became a regular element of our school bags, a mobile phone was the accessory and none was more fashionable than one bearing a Nokia. And it couldn’t be any Nokia of course, it had to be the latest. Thus schoolyard talk was littered with aspirational put downs of the…
