Brilliant photographer Craig McDean created an out-of-this-world editorial of fantasy couture for a recent issue of Vogue Italia.
The 'Pure Wonder' editorial features the talented model, Caren Elson, in uber eccentric fashion creations that are more suitable for paintings of fairy tales and fantasies than the fashion scene of 2008.
But that's why the editorial captivates and inspires. The eccentric fashion creations are presented with fantastic art direction and with excellent modeling skills.
Implications - This editorial effortlessly showcases the degree to which fashion truly is art. The photographer creates a captivating series of images that will appeal to not only fashion and art enthusiasts, but also to anyone seeking a periodic break from their tedious day-to-day schedules that lack inspiration and creativity.
