There is something magical about dreams, one would never know what one will see... but for me, usually they start with a white scene, a bright beautiful burst of light. So naturally an abundance of whites and crisp natural light became my focal point. For this editorial, I see an ethereal scene of fine lace, vintage jewels, delicate veils and tulle skirts bursting with dainty prettiness that melt the heart. This is juxtaposed with dreamy white paper cut outs created by a paper artist Stuart Mc Lachlan, the scene with floating paper butterflies, paper top hat, and the infusion of fresh foliage adds magic and life to the whole atmosphere.
To embrace and explore the nostalgic emotions, I styled the shoot with vintage furniture and vases against lush green foliage and the soft fine lace. Our Model, Alina wore a delicate vintage headpiece embedded with crystals and Amelia’s family heirloom – her grandmother’s vintage ring to help transcend the viewer to a whimsical and dreamy place where anything is possible. The use of the vintage grandfather chair against the soft white tulle exemplifies the feeling of weightlessness and euphoria when you are intimately involved in exploring your version of utopia through your dreams based on your past, present and future.
