I look forward to writing this blog every month. And I am deeply disappointed that I have missed couple of months. Fashion styling business can become very intense at times and lately it's been especially crazy.
We're back at our favorite vintage spot in downtown Bethlehem; The Attic, and still with our lovely model Faith Garavaglia. As usual, I was stunned by the beautiful photographs by John Rounds.
I was also enthralled by the edginess and raw passion that leaped off Faith's outfit that she picked out herself. In photos of Faith striking a pose, John Rounds offers the most startling and compelling images of any fashion blog today.
"If you've got it, flaunt it," is the motto of this particular photo-shoot. And "flaunt it" she did, showing that women continue to find distraction, indulgence, perhaps even solace, in uniqueness of vintage fashion. And this time, our joy is all about this dress by Romeo and Juliet.
Faith's outfit is a pitch for the party girl in modern/industrial mode. We're shifting from spring's palette of pale, dusty shades to a moody black and from frocks with major flow to a highly constructed shillouettes.
In fact, strong boho inspired silhouettes were a big theme behind 2018 Fall Fashion shows. Brands like Self-Portrait, Balmain or Tom Ford appreciate the value of more and kind of fashion that can exude modern and futuristic romanticism.
If you are one of these girls looking to deliver controlled fashion drama just start by eliminating multiple chiffon layerings in favor of chic tailoring in black.
Other elements to look for in the near future are black lace, white satin embroidered with flowers, studded black leather- capturing moods from elegance to S&M.
As always the result of our creative collaboration with our wonderful make-up artist Danika Clevenstine, photographer John Rounds and super talented model Faith Garavaglia was a fabulous photoshoot.
Once again we need to acknowledge The Attic boutique for letting us roam their wonderful and chic supply of magical clothes and accessories. Everybody who loves vintage treasures will go gaga over The Attic's selection, and here we're making it official.
