Photographer: Anne-Marie Michel Fashion Editor: Jodie Spragg Makeup/hair stylist: Sophie Moore using Bobbi Brown Model: Julia Nevs at Leni’s Models Fall doesn’t mean drab colors that portend a melancholy mood leading into a dark winter. It can be expressive. It can mean beauty. It can have a vibrancy of color that goes beyond other seasons that are commonly known for color (Spring and Summer we’re looking at you). In this Foto series, London-based photographer Anne-Marie Michel and team utilize an array of designers to show how expressive and vibrant multiple colors for Fall can be. Take the hint and revel in her interpretation of the season:
Lookbooks are a dime a dozen. This is especially the case with the advent of Fall collections. Youngmi Ha’s Hanah Fall 2015 collection is all about working with geometric shapes to achieve an aesthetic that’s many notches below vamp and more reflective of the modern woman. Subdued patterns in monochrome rules the roost here. You have embellished oversized items but not cartoonish in manner. They effect as a result is one that will make the woman looking for something from someone different ecstatic. It hits shelves in the next month or so.

Uma Kangai is a designer you will want to know both in the coming seasons and years. Her works were set to be published in Papierdoll nearly a year ago, but too much happened to explain. What matters is that she is here now and her collection of feminine, nearly Victorian designs seem to be just the beginning. The British/Zimbabwean designer states that she’s influences by Indian culture from her times traveling to Rishikesh, Northern India. You can learn more about the designer by visiting her website at http://www.umakangai.com/

Photographs by Phil Crozier, Photophilcro http://www.photophilcro.com/ Fashion Direction: Kat Marks www.katmarks.com Make Up: Rene Menendez http://www.renefrancisco.com Art Direction and Post-Production : Patrick Luu http://patrickluu.com/ Starring: Everline Aboka, Artist Within, http://www.everlineaboka.com/ Very rarely does a fashion photography team generate a general rush of excitement at the prospect of new work. Kat Marks is a creative that does just that. Marks directed the fashion in this photo story entitled “Warrior” a couple of months back and gave us permission after a 48 hour embargo to publish. Featuring exotic accessories such as a synthetic hair neck ring, leather and metal should pauldrons (which are part of a leather harness set), this unconventional shoot makes us yearn for more from this designer.
Harvey Faircloth’s Spring/Summer 2014 collection is not this daring, edgy work that you normally see on the pixels of Papierdoll, but its pretty. Prettiness always works when it comes to fashion design.
