Alternative Fashion – Rice Paper Top

I am always excited about shooting fashion. And doing a fashion shoot is even more fun, if there is a special garment and a professional model like Kim. For this shooting we had a top made from rice paper.

This was solely made for the shooting as naturally the material is not strong enough to be seriously worn outside a studio environment. Although the rice paper was reinforced with some adhesive film, it still would not survive.

Kim is the perfect model for this garment. Her elegant look and round hair style matches very well with the rice paper dress. For the light setting we selected some harder shadows to better show the natural wrinkles of the paper.

For a more futuristic look we used an optical reflector with a mask and a yellow filter. With that we could project focussed yellow dots of different sizes onto the garment.
