Went upstairs to kiss a fellow
Made a mistake and kissed a snake
How many doctors did it take?”♬
I KNOW “Cinderella” is a famous fairy tale and Disney movie, but when I think of “Cinderella” I think of the above children’s song (from my childhood in the US..it’s played while jumping rope).
It really doesn’t have anything to do with the “Tokyo Cinderella Exhibit” other than I avoided styling the model in the color yellow. No, it’s rather a lot of pinks, hot greens, shimmery whites and glistening metallics, as I went all-out for fantasy and couture in modern day POP-Tokyo. The goal was to instill some fashion fantasy into a post-earthquake Japan, as many young Japanese Cinderellas lost their slippers with no Prince to come looking to give them back.
The exhibit is for a project called “QUEEN” that has been ongoing since April of this year in Kyoto with a 3D film exhibit in Kyoto and is moving up to Tokyo in August to the Neutron Tokyo Gallery in Gaienmae. I worked with two photographers and two models over two days for the shoot. One is Yonehara Keitaro who is a master of HDR photography…VERY rare in in Japan! I love the surreal, otherworldly effect his photos have (I worked with the same photog on my Shaman shoot before).
Azuma Tatsuya was snapping photos and video as we worked and they were so good they are being included in the exhibition too (you may have seen this on Facebook. I couldn’t have been more ecstatic towards the good reception!).
Please come for the reception on Aug 1st or pop on by until the 12th to see them all. Besides my work are some crazy Alexander McQueen outfits and couture pieces which will throw you back (especially being in HDR!). See the off-shots below, taken be me and Azuma and I`ll post the final cuts later on.
