So last Sunday morning with a team of fantastic people I orchestrated fashion photography shoot at Callan Park, Rozelle. This dramatic naughty Little Red Riding Hood piece was designed as the head costume in the annual Enmore Tafe costume extravaganza show that in 2006 was entitled “Fairytales Behaving badly”. A caricatured version of this was the logo of the show, featured on all the promotional material of the show, and a live dance performance of the opening sequence was performed by a professional dancer wearing this costume at the Enmore Theatre.
This ensomble resonates with my current design philosophy of utilizing bright colours, bold silhouettes and the use of unconventional materials in harmony to achieve captivating results. To accomplish this silhouette I used wire on the vertical skirt seams and irrigation pipe (for domestic watering systems) through the hem of this dress.
I would like to acknowledge the following people for their generous contribution to this shoot; Simon Whyte (Photography) Laura Simpson (Model), David Van Gogh (Model) and students from Napoleon Perdis Natasha Newman – Make-up and Rachel Magi – Hair.
Simon Whyte is a fantastic photographer as you can see. Check out his website, Simon Whyte Photography
