The fusion of Fashion and Fine Art is always haunting me, and it is so exhilarating whan it happens in such unexpected ways!.
This time, my friend, artist and fashion designer Luis Valenzuela, created a fantastic collection of couture dresses, all made from recycled fabrics and materials, and each dress was an homage to different artists, ranging from Salvador Dali and Frida Khalo to Architects Herzog and DeMeuron. The collection was on exhibit at the Bernice Steinbaum Gallery in Miami. Luis called me to set up a shooting with the mannequins wearing the dresses on display, but I came up with bigger plans.
The exhibit was called ” Sustainability with Style” and after a great meeting with fashionista and gallery owner Bernice Steinbaum , we used the Gallery location itself to shoot the dresses wore by model Valerie from 305 Models, styled by Gabriel Noda and Daniel Avalos, both from Gabriel Productions.
A small sample of the images shot is showcased here. Here is the slide show( Make sure you clikc on the Full Screen Mode):
