A few weeks ago a friend/photographer/beautiful soul suggested we do a photoshoot at Carriageworks where they have commissioned a large-scale work by renowned German artist Katharina Grosse. Using over 8,000 square metres of fabric. Grosse draped, knotted, then created a multilayered painting on the surfaces and folds of the fabric, resulting in a out-of-your-mind experience.
After shooting at Carriageworks, my appreciation & curiosity for art has been perpetual. Art has a way of expressing your thoughts onto a blank canvas, just like Fashion, your body is a blank canvas waiting to be covered in beautiful work.
A big part of this expression is colour. Colour stirs up a lot of emotions, sensations, memories and is something we register in our mind & attach to a memory. The decision to wear black was not only to stand out against but to be a juxtaposition against the mixture of colours.
Shoes: New Balance
The pelvage trend was once a craze, forwarded by influencers & models who don’t stand at a comfy 5″3 & also have no qualms in accidental flashing.
Thigh-high splits & a touch of quirk.
Keep it simple & be confident.
And, when it comes to the old age trend of “dressing for your body type,”
I give zero fucks.
Dress: General Pants & Co.
Scarf (worn on the ankle): Bardot
The Little Black Dress 2.0:
- Unapologetically you.
