GABOUREY SIDIBE EDITORIAL

Issey Miyake Madame T Scarf at Tribecaisseymiyake.com TWOmuchSTYLE X GABOUREY SIDIBE TWOmuchSTYLE collaborated with the Chicago Tribune in styling an editorial with the actress Gabourey Sidibe. It was a challenging job, which required research. I wanted to dress her in something structured but soft with shape and a bit of texture and flow. After many edits I settled upon the Japanese designer Issey Miyake, Pleats collection, that envelopes the body in amazing lines and the Lebanese Couturier Maison Rabih Kayrouz who is known for his voluminous shapely designs.

INDIVIDUALITY, FALL FASHION 2015

TRIBUNE FALL FASHION COVER 2015- PHOTOGRAPHED BY KEVIN SINCLAIRE STYLED BY TWOMUCHSTYLE
TWOmuchSTYLE collaborated with the Chicago Tribune for fall fashion 2015. In my research of the collections, I discovered that designers presented multiple choices for women. They gave women a choice to choose. One has the option to be individualistic, to mix and match as one chooses. This season has no rules. The sixties is strong but so is the 70's and 80's. Hemlines fell to past the knees but it also shrunk to way above the knees. The season is about black but it is also about color and lack there of. It is about minimalism but is also about embroideries and maximum detail. This portfolio is photographed by Kevin Sinclaire Model- Tian Yi at IMG Makeup by Fumiaki Nakagawa...
