Diago Mariotta Mendez captures Vision China's 'Dreamland' photography feature and brings the shoot's conceptual theme to life for readers. Mendez teams up with the style publication's creative director Elamas Yip, who also curates the theatrical photoshoot's fashions.
Yip dresses a cast of models and dancers in pieces from Gareth Pugh, Viktor & Rolf, and Saint Laurent among other names and opts for pieces that defy convention. In addition to texture-enriched and sculptural pieces, Yip also experiments with this editorial's props that range from transparent sheets to minimalist and wireframe sculptures.
Resembling stills from a Lady Gaga stage performance, Vision China's 'Dreamland' photography series is elegant and extravagant. The editorial marries fashion with performance and is an homage to avant-garde and artistic garments.
