outfit | parisian dollhouse

August 27, 2013
It’s been a while since I wanted to do a photo-shoot were I would play dress-up and pose as if it were for a magazine, and I finally got my wish!
The theme: Dollhouse, and of course I was the doll ^^
My inspiration was mainly the work of my favorite fashion photographer Miles Aldridge. I cannot possibly compare this to his work, but you might see a bit of the influence in it :)
As well I used as inspiration a specific photoshoot from Elle Poland featuring Magdalena Jasek(photographed by Agata Pospieszynska) wearing the Louis Vuitton SS13 collection.
You will see some photos in which I humbly try to emulate that shoot… 
So I give full credit to them, in no way I’m pretending this to be completely new and of my authorship.
It was so much fun to do this shoot! It taught me not to underestimate the hard-work of models and of course it showed me many areas of improvement in my posing, art-direction, photography and editing.
Can’t wait to do more!
The best part was that the guys over at Habitat Parisien were so kind to allow me to use one of their picture-perfect apartments as the scenery for my “almost-editorial” photo-shoot!
It was my dream apartment! It has an enormous terrace from which you can see almost all Paris monuments and highlights like the Eiffel Tower, the Dome of Invalides, Montparnasse, the Sacre Coeur, the Seine River, the Louvre, and of course many gorgeous Parisian rooftops!
At the end of the day they had to drag me out of the apartment because I didn’t want to leave, lol not really, but almost, because I fell in love with this place, I wanna live there!
