Photographer Jeon Seung Hwan works with 'Digital Light Ltd' in order to create stylistic photographs that pop out of the pages of the magazine. By using a grainy texture and faded colors in the background, the magazine creates shadow and depth around the outfits.

The fashion within the editorial is silvery and silky smooth, and color is not incorporated into the materials. Classic looks are achieved using pearl accessories and details sewn into the fitted fabrics. By adding color into the backdrops, Jeon Seung Hwan makes it looks as if the fashions are separate from the settings. This is a great technique because the grey in the fabric becomes more eye-catching from a distance.

Jeon Seung Hwan shows that the setting is extremely important when fashion lacks color and by adding colorful backgrounds eye-popping looks can still be achieved.
