Here is our fashion story. I think this was a interesting and fun project which helped me develop my group skills and also gave me a change from what I usually focus on when doing projects. The only thing I would change about our fashion story is I would be more selective about the images, because I think theres quite a lot of photographs which can be quite overwhelming. But overall I think this was a successful assignment.
Both Louise and I created a moodboard to brainstorm our ideas for our project. We began by looking round Brighton trying to get different ideas on stereotypes. We noticed there were so many different influences so just picked the two we thought would be the most interesting to combine. These two styles were grunge and teddy boy.
We then began thinking of different ways to edit our final images, and we wanted to somehow include neon into our photographs. Artists such as Dan Flavin, Tracey Emin and Viviane Sassen were highly influential for this part.
Finally, we began thinking about location. Because we had decided quite youthful concepts, we wanted to go for something quite childish and fun. We thought that the best place for our photoshoot would be the arcade or the games on Brighton pier. This was also keeping in theme with our neon concepts, because of the lights on the rides.
