Jeans, Levi's- Vintage
Above is a shoot that ties into what i'm doing at college entitled 'The Denim Project'. The aim of the photoshoot was to bring denim back- my contemporary take on the arguably hideous 1980's denim trend. I would quite happily argue that double denim can look great now. I wanted to do as much as i could myself with this project and so i embarked on my first photography experience and borrowed a friends camera to take the photo's in the studio. The outfit is inspired by how denim was worn by influential figures in the 80's- Madonna, Bananarama (particularly in their Cruel Summer video) and Cyndi Lauper. The obvious choice to make the outfit modern was to go with current trends- however i found that make-up in the 1980's was similar to what is popular now with regards to eyebrows. Cara Delevigne has exasperated the already popular trend of the thick defined brow. So i decided to contrast this entirely with a 'white-out' brow inspired by Balint Barna's 'A Touch Of White'. There is something so alien and futuristic about a white or bleached brow and i'm totally on board with the entire look. The shoes are there to match the brows and look great and i wanted the poses to be dynamic and interesting to reflect the energy of the era. Finally; it was important to have a blonde model with platinum hair being the only way to do hair in the 80's. Enjoy.
