Riot of perfume has also been another exceptional influence through this project, especially when identifying if i wanted to create a magazine or not for my final piece. This editorial stood out for me when reading the magazine at the start of the term, i think mostly because of how unusual the setting is for the focus to be on the fashion. It actually looks as if it has been pulled out of a legitimate 80’s book of some kind with relations to the styling, hair techniques and unconventional use of posing. I just found this relevant to this shoot because of the location and how they have managed to succeed in having the fashion still as the main focus; obviously the key factor i need to show as a stylist. Not only this, the textures of the fabric could be interesting to develop on as a unusual way of showing classic pattern structure in my work. The detailing in the lace, the floral of the dress and even how the nude tights are placed over the ice-skater’s knickers which form a certain shape too. All of this could be a subtle reflection of the Renaissance painting, but i do need to realise an idea on how i can take a more obvious adaption from the painting. Maybe this could be how the characters within the painting are all in various places, almost segmenting the entire painting completely. I could use this idea and make the model position herself / himself in similar places in similar positions around the location. After taking the photos, post production could help highlight this use of positioning even more as i can locate the images in a certain way.
