When I think of high fashion couture, images like the ones from the Numero 126 September 2011 editorial are exactly what I imagine.
Photographer Greg Kadel captures model Monika Jac Jagaciak as she dons theatrical pieces accompanied by layers of jewelry. She wears her hair in a big exaggerated pouf that makes her stand out even more. The monochromatic palette is perfect for the Numero 126 September 2011 photo shoot as it creates a balance with the statement-making ensembles.
This spread definitely encapsulates the meaning of fashion for art.
Implications - No longer attracted to overtly exaggerated styles, consumers are looking for ones that feature a more classic aesthetic. Products that contain a paired down look attract more customers than those which focus on being controversial. Recognizing this could help a company increase its revenue.
