I’ve been a big fan of Max Wanger for awhile. I’m most familiar with his romantic/engagement/wedding photography, which I’ve blogged about before. It was only recently that I discovered his fashion photography. I love his lighting, the pops of colour and feeling of whimsy in his fashion photos. The fashion industry can take itself a little seriously sometimes so it’s nice to see it lighten up a bit. Being a stylist on these shoots would’ve been a ton of fun.
Take a look:
Isn’t that so unique?! I’m going to make an assumption that you would remove the markers before you wear the dress out. Something to consider would be all the trial & error and experimental time spent getting this just right so it looks beautiful. He would’ve had to figure out exactly how much ink each marker holds, the size of the bleed, the time it took to bleed and space out the pockets accordingly based on how he wanted the finished product to look. There is some serious left & right brain thinking behind this one.
I think this is so neat but I do question the renewable factor. I get that the one dress can be reinvented many times over but not sure about all the discarded markers? Oh well, can’t win them all. At least no one will be wearing your dress and you will definitely have something interesting to talk about.
