The Four Muses
I recently shot my lookbook for Secession’s Spring 2012 Collection.. you’ve seen some abstract glimpses of the graphics.. and soon you’ll be able to see the actual clothes! But first.. I wanted to show you my four muses! It is the concept behind the shoot.. The shoot was called “the four muses of Spring 2012” .. I believe there were originally 3 muses.. (daughters of Apollo).. but then later there were 4 (Zeus and Plusia’s daughters). I liked the idea of having 4 girls representing my own personal muses.. painted to look like live Greek statues, standing behind the model to add a little depth and a sort of narrative. Shooting clothes on a plain white background bores me.. and although, I know it should be all about the clothes.. I think it’s also about an image and a story.. so here are some pictures of the four muses.
