The L'Officiel Turkey Emily Senko photo shoot is a geisha-inspired collection of images that challenges ideas of what the traditional female Japanese entertainer looks like.

Shot by photographer Emre Guven for the May 2013 issue of the French fashion magazine, the series features model Emily Senko trying on various modern Geisha ensembles. The shoot transforms the traditional Japanese look for contemporary times, opting for transparent robes and metallic sashes instead of completely covering up. There is one image in which Senko closely resembles what most people would imagine a Geisha to look like, with her face painted white and wearing a floral dress.

Check out all of the images from the L'Officiel Turkey Emily Senko shoot to see modern and traditional coming together for a gorgeous fashion spread.
