Furniture can make fashion!

Yesterday I had my third graduation shoot.
It was for the most amazing clothing designer ☆Hiroko Nakajima☆, who just graduated from the knit wear course of Central Saint Martins. Being her friend I felt lucky to have an opportunity to collaborate with her. We had very limited resources for this project, shot in her studio flat with no professional lighting, so it was rather spontaneous, but I am quite satisfied with the result.

Our model was a new face from booking and MUA was recommended to me by my friend Nicole. The team was great and we worked it out together. The aim of this photoshoot was not to create clean commercial images, but rather to produce an editorial that would communicate the mood, atmosphere and feel of Hiroko's collection. It all has a slightly vintage feel, as she was inspired by Victorian furniture.

Neo-Hippie

All presentations are finished for me this year.
Lcf was more confusing than usual this term, but now it's all done and I can start doing more personal projects.

This was my minor project for this term.
The inspiration came from a Czech new-wave movie Daisies which is amazing and highly recommended. I was aiming this story to have a slightly nostalgic feel with a touch of urbanity <3
