Top 100 Fashion Photography Trends of 2014

From Avant-Garde Editorials to Candid Model Closeups

— January 3, 2015 — Fashion
These 2014 fashion photography trends range from conceptual and avant-garde editorials to candid model closeups that capture one's raw beauty.

While high fashion publications are turning up the heat when it comes to imaginative imagery, youthful fashion labels are presenting their products in catalogs that are more spontaneous and candid in their approach.

The year's avant-garde and artful editorials are matched by equally as striking photoshoots that are stripped bare of makeup and special effects.

Nostalgic references are also at an all-time high in the fashion industry and are the inspiration behind these 2014 fashion photography trends. Whether referencing 70s era psychedelic rock or 90s grunge, these photographic features manage to revive the past for today's generation.

If you wish to learn more about next year's fashion photography trends, check out Trend Hunter's Photography Trend Report.
