(Un)Fashion – by Charles Wong

(Un)Fashion is a shoot that started out as a concept and a voice against the ubiquitous fashion photos with models as lifeless, unhappy mannequins.

Perhaps one of the most recognizable sights in fashion is a celebrity or model with a dog walking down the street.  The model is often dressed from head to toe in many attractive pieces of jewelry and completely impractical but attractive wardrobe.  In a sense (and perhaps unknowingly so), the model becomes simple an object to convey the ideas of fashion.  And, most ironically, the stark contrast of self expression between pet and owner could not be any more comical.

In this photo story, we explore the concept of a glamourous fashion shoot where the model is not simply a pretty face, but a girl with her own self-expression.  With our muse Sonya and her oddly obedient puppy, we observe the subtle but deep expressions in a girl who enjoys the ways of yesteryear, and the simple but beautiful wardrobe that defined a generation.
