Creating a magazine out of nothing is really a challenge. That’s what we’re up to for our SoFA Fashion styling Finals. Together with Photography students, we need to come up with project that is based on the following criteria:
Draw inspiration and research for:
1. Photographer (international and local) We choose Annie Leibovitz for her prowess in capturing the intimacy and simplicity of her subjects.
2. Film Glass Menagerie (our take away from this movie is breaking out of your comfort zone)
3. Underground Magazine, Encens (A french online magazine where you can find lots of inspiring and simple yet interesting editorials) The site is under construction though
4. Art Japanese + Neon colors
The team came up with a TRANSFORMATION/ CHANGE/ METAMORPHOSIS kind of topic. A particular quote where we started off is “Some of us reinvent ourselves, some more than others”. This became the subject of the whole magazine thing. Planning, researching, coming up with a strategy and how to execute the whole concept WAS NOT AN EASY TASK.
We were given just about 2 weeks to prepare. To book models, do pulls for designers (thankfully we attended the FIP Graduation show where we were able to get the designers’ contact numbers), hunt for a cheap but decent studio, shop in Divisoria for accessories and fabrics that we need for the whole shoot. It required investment in time, effort of course even money as we will shoulder all the expenses.
Above photos were some of the moodboard and pegs used in creating our baby.
