I woke up this morning with an idea to do a shoot that was vintage inspired and centered around the femininity, fragility but strength of a woman. It doesn’t feel like anything fancy but it was fun to shoot and edit nonetheless. I actually like the idea of playing with style and creating characters that tell a story. It makes fashion interesting and fun and it’s where it becomes an art form instead of just a pretty dress. I asked myself what the opposite of art was and I couldn’t easily find a word that perfectly described it but I knew I didn’t want to do that thing. To make something that is art takes a sense of vulnerability because you’re not so much worried about the beauty or prettiness, but rather the feeling, and capturing that feeling rightly is what makes it beautiful, in my opinion. It’s why we love photoshoots in the glossy magazines, they give us a feeling which we then want to replicate in our personal lives. Whether it’s whimsical, fierce, minimalistic or wild. Just some musings..
I’m wearing a Neiman Marcus cashmere sweater, H&M belt, and a cotton pencil skirt with Guess heels.
