For the latest issue of Teen Vogue, the magazine featured a spread of wildly colorful, intensely patterned outfits, taking tribal patterns to a new level of style.

The Teen Vogue shoot featured porcelain models, and the images look almost like paintings. The headless models wore 8-10 patterns in one outfit, which would usually be dizzying, but were more artistic than alarming in this shoot.

Implications - Within runway shows the use of relatively plain make-up and hair-dos helps to emphasize the clothing and the same can be true for photo shoots. When attempting to switch viewer's focus directly on to a specific product or service, companies should attempt to use other imagery that highlights the product directly, without taking away the attention from it.
