‘Alter’ is the name of Louise Simmonds’ first and fabulous collection. The London-based designer has a medieval-gothic inspired theme to both her fashions and the photographic techniques used in these six dramatic images.
Powder-faced models with deep red lips and disheveled hairdos show off the clothing in creatively contorted poses. Check out the shot with the red shoes, the poor girl’s legs are so twisted they’re facing completely backwards.
The white gown with the blood red hem looks as if it could have stepped right out of a religious Renaissance work of art.
Simmonds’ illustrations, a few of which I’ve included, are an impressive extension of her talent.
