Styling: Boho

Boho styling has swept the nation especially for spring/summer and festivals. I would like to include items from this style in my photo shoot. Boho style is often quite floaty and free, making it comfortable and something you feel at home in.

Sounds like an oxymoron doesn’t it? Well it probably is but hey, it sounds good.

It doesn’t just sound good though, it describes perfectly DSquared2’s 2010 Spring & Summer offering as seen at last month’s (or was it the month before) Milan Fashion week.

Canadian brothers Dean & Dan Caten wowed audiences with their combination of classic tailoring and rugged outdoor style garments. When put together these unlikely bed fellows (the clothes not the brothers) create a look that perfectly sums up the title of this post.

It’s a look that just works.

It might be a little too catwalk for Glastonbury or Bestival but I guarantee that there are elements from this collection that will creep into many people’s wardrobes in time for next year’s festival season..

Keep an eye out for pockets – lots of pockets, shorts with long-johns and for the really brave, sandals with chunky socks. Team these up with a tailored jacket for the complete look.

Oh, and tool belts – yes tool belts. You heard it here first festival fans.

plan B

For another idea I decided to look closer to home and have decided to choose a new location. I will do my photo shoot at my home town, Madeley, in Cheshire.
I would like to use the fields, abandoned railway line and an abandoned house behind my house as the location for my photo shoot.
I would like to stick with my original idea in terms of clothes and accessories, I will have a spring/summer theme for the outfits. I will also tailor it to the idea of being at home in Britain by incorporating the idea of a British festival into the shoot and styling. I would quite like to include this idea of a festival and British-ness as a kind of narrative in some of my images.

Fashion photography on the beach

The majority of the fashion images I have come across feature blue skies and white sand, unfortunately it would be really difficult for me to get access to a location like that. Although I could make my images look more exotic by editing them on photo shop editing software it wouldn't have quite the same effect.

After considering weather conditions, locations, and time scale I have also decided to come up with another idea that will also have a stronger link with my home.
