Retro Nights fashion editorial published in Philocaly Magazine Issue 3

It is with great excitement that I can finally reveal my latest published work: Retro Nights. The story is inspired by the theme for Philocaly magazine’s latest publication: The Decades Issue.  This summer fashion editorial features exotic beauty Tessa Lethoko at Alushi Models heading up the after party. It is light-hearted and fun, dotted with flamingos and pineapples. It is also very colourful, which gives it a bit of a Vegas feel.

Fashion and styling for the shoot was supplied by bespoke designers Clad Chic. The garments supplied feature bold prints,  embroidery and sequence. The latter captured the light beautifully and added to that disco feel. Furthermore, these effects were highlighted through make-up by Angie Van Der Berg, who worked glitter, gold and colourful undertones.  I really enjoyed incorporating the ambient lighting of the venue, Beefcakes. I had the stage lights on and the disco ball twirling to add interesting effects and make the party more believable.
