Photographer Xi Sinsong has beautifully captured the mood of carnival days gone by with this enchanting editorial for Fashion Gone Rogue, taking the viewer on a magical journey through an ethereal and beautiful carnival atmosphere.
Model Tina is decked-out in ballet inspired skirts, ultra soft florals, ribbons and lace, conjuring visions of both Tim Burtonesque film aesthetics and Belle Epoque extravagance. This modern day fairytale is brought to life with unique props by Gary Russell Freeman; a violin, a cat, a horse statue and a sword are a few of the unexpected carnival inspired accoutrements.
Carnival couture doesn't seem to be leaving the realm of fashion any time soon.
