Shoes – Boohoo
Hairband – American Apparel
Hello everyone, another day another outfit. For these pictures I was inspired by the fashion photographs of the nineties and early 2000s as on my CSM course I had access to all back issues from magazines such as Nylon, Love, Dazed and Confused and i-D which I normally never read due to them pretty expensive. I noticed that images with a flash and lots of contrast were popular and as this worked best at this time of night, decided to take and edit my pictures for this outfit in a similar way, especially as it was quite nineties-inspired. This was due to the small hoops and hair band as well as the t-shirt style dress, chunky shoes and minimal makeup.
Here are some of examples of the sort of images I had in mind
Kate Moss by Corinne Day for i-D Magazine, December 1993.
Shirley Manson by Ross Halfin, Nylon Magazine, April 1999
The outfit initially began as it is in the first pictures, with the kimono (who am I kidding, it’s a dressing gown) worn as such. However, when I was trying on some tops and realised that I didn’t have any trousers to wear them with, I wrapped the kimono round me as a skirt and the kimono skirt/double layered dress was born with the sleeves serving as a makeshift belt.
I hope you liked this super speedy outfit du jour, a bientot!
