Iconic photographer Mario Sorrenti captures this March 2013 W Magazine fashion story with the expertise of a seasoned master.

This piece, titled 'Rave New World,' pays homage to the extravagance of rave culture suggesting that this aesthetic will become de rigueur this season. Aside form the all-star model cast that featured the likes of Aymeline Valade, Caroline Brasch Nielsen, Doutzen Kroes and Nadja Bender, this fashion story doubles as art with its opulent visuals.

Each statuesque raver is covered in a kaleidoscopic blend of glitter and beading. Stylist Panos Yiapanis poetically puts together a vision of exuberance with pieces by Dolce & Gabbana, Roberto Cavalli and Stella McCartney. The result is a celebration of color and the theatricality of a visionary fashion editorial. This piece is a standout in the March 2013 W Magazine issue.
