WINNER best recycled design!
“This dress is made from a few hundred recycled flyers and brochures from Opera Carolina. It is to promote the opera Barber of Seville opening in October here in Charlotte. My inspiration for the swirled skirt was a barber pole, and the stained glass look because I love stained glass and I thought it would be a different approach to working with paper than I had used before.I try and make dresses for Opera Carolina that could actually be modern fashion if they were to be made from fabric.” – Emily Kramer Designs
Photo Shoot & Fashion Show Tips
"As a photographer assisting or shooting, I have seen colorful nails ruin a photo or cause the photographer to avoid a shot all together because the model had fingernail polish that just threw everything off. Yes photoshop could probably correct the problem, but...you don't want to rely on that. Natural is always better unless your nail color is a planned part of the shoot/concept."
