Origami Blossoms : Artistic Bridal Fashion Series
The first chapter in a Artistic Bridal Fashion project styled; conceptualised between myself and Adri Hugo that will be gracing your screens every few months.
This look book focuses on the art of origami. Inspired by the colours & essence of some aspects of Japanese culture the idea came to life in this very modern & on trend look book.
According to www.thefreedictionary.com ‘s definition it is :
1. The art or process, originating in Japan, of folding paper into shapes representing flowers and birds,for example.
2. A decorative object made by folding paper
For our look book the extremely artistic and talented Hermien Greeff from Plank Create
made free standing giant Origami Flowers as well as a wall draping covered in these beautiful art pieces.
Being the genius that she is, Adri Hugo
focused on recreating the folding effect of the origami flowers on Candice’s hair. As seen above in this intricate rose bridal hair design. For the make up she took inspiration from the traditional Japanese Geisha style make up. By whitening the skin and using a soft pink lip to mimic the cherry blossoms Japan is so famous for.
Jacques La Grange’s dresses compliments the minimalistic bridal look book we wanted to create. Modern and elegant pieces for the bride who is not scared to move away from the traditional styles.
The blossom lace two piece is perfect for the 2017 Modern Spring bride as tea length skirts and crop tops are seen at bridal fashion weeks globally at the moment.
With the two sisters so similiar in looks we wanted to create a mirror effect and Adri did exactly the same make up look on Chloe. For the hair she still recreate the art of origami folding but the pattern is more random then the one seen on Candice.
