Playing Dress Up

An experiment with photography and editing.

Here, I am exploring the garments in my wardrobe. After collating the items I own, I started to notice trends.

I very much enjoy fashion and styling and believed the most appropriate way to represent my findings was with a feminine and surreal shoot that incorporates the styles I identified.

These being
Romantic and light
Monochromes and theatrical garments
1920/40s period looking garments
Doll like

I transferred these ideas onto the figure creating characters with the clothes. I named them- in a similar manner to fashion spreads/ look guides:

Fancy Free (casual)
English Romance (Romantic)
All That Jazz (period pieces)
Starlet of the Seven Seas (Nautical)
Dolly Mixture (doll)

Below is the image in the context of a type poster- this list the garments very simply within their style section.

Below are each original shots I took of the characters. It was with the mask tool on Photoshop that I merged them into the same image.
Fancy Free
