The Seasons - creative art project
Today was a very happy and rewarding day. Our team successfully finished our artistic project "The Seasons". This wonderful project kept me excited all year long. With the photographer Eric Mercier we came up with the idea to capture each season (spring, summer, autumn and winter) with it's unforgetable atmosphere. The challenge for me was to design an outfit for each season that would evoke the savor of the season. Each outfit should be wearable enough to be put on for anybody yet still remain magical with the proper styling and use of accessories. I really enjoyed the designing part of the challenge where I had to think about all the different requirements that the garment should fulfill. For all seasons we also had the models already preselected in time ahead, so my personal intrerest was also to design the outfit that will suit to the particular model. Here I used my styling skills - knowledge of what complextion (=skin hue) and hair color will go with what fabric (color/texture). At the end we decided with Eric which design folows our vision for the season the best. We also discussed our ideas with our fabulous collaborating make up artist, Tracey Lahey. She very creatively designed the make up for each look. For Harvest Goddess look we ask a very talented hair stylist Vanessa Passley for help with the hair style. She came up with a beautiful angelic look for Marianne. Then we had fun with taking all theese beautiful images on several locations around Ottawa. Each season reveals the very specific feel identifying that specific time of the year. How do you like the concept? Let me know... :-)
