Since the dawn of comics, superheroes have had fabulous outfits – flowing capes, wonderful trendy logos, fantastic accessories – yet they’ve never been what the readers of Vogue would consider clotheshorses. Kevin Wada’s illustrations change all of that.
The fashion industry is not a pretty business. Here, one of its own, the former editor of Australian Vogue Kirstie Clements describes a thin-obsessed culture in which starving models eat tissues and resort to surgery when dieting isn’t enough
I recently came across this Donna Karan campaign. Immediately, my eyes went right to her leg. It looked suspect to me, as if it didn’t belong. Perhaps it may be a visual illusion due to the way the clothing is placed versus how she is leaning. Or maybe, there’s another reason…
Hai Le explains, “I like to imagine that she’s a cyborg robot and he’s the evil scientist that built her and he has to repair her leg. This is the moment right when he’s pulling the leg off.”
There you have it, the hard hitting truth about Donna Karan’s latest campaign. We all know Donna, we all know!
I just had to share Hai’s response to the original post here, it was too great to pass up.
Photography And Retouching Workshop: Los Angeles (This Weekend)
(Click the banner for a closer view)
Fashion and beauty photographer, Bill Jones, is teaming up with me to produce a special workshop that puts in so much information and detail that I am really excited to announce it to you guys. We have a team full of talent on board and seeing what Bill has in store on his end, I decided to make it happen.
He will also give you any information you need about the photography portion of the workshop or any other details in general. If you have any questions about the retouching section, you can e-mail me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Day 2: I also intend to deliver information about working with a photographer (the dynamic), the quality agencies like to see and working with agencies, art directors, and editors directly, the best way to process files for their approval, finding a retoucher as a photographer, the best way to approach a working relationship with a retoucher, and of course the retouching workshop itself full of my techniques and the most efficient workflow to get the best results.
We will be working with the files taken on the first day for the retouching portion. I will also save time to address specific issues you may have, so we’ll make sure you walk away with a wealth of information.
Photographer An Le is back again, this time moving up to the commercial fashion arena for Saks Fifth Avenue Off Fifth.
In specific, this was for their jewelry campaign.
Here is the full team responsible for these beautiful images.
