Katherine II

fashion photography - Katherine

Photography of Katherine II by Daura Lee

Above is a portrait of my long time friend Katherine.  I haven’t much to say about this one other than the fact that she pulls off the “delicate young lady” very well. Sultry eyes and naturally disorderly waves are a part of Kath’s charm.  What better way to bring out these feminine characteristics than with a floral blouse?

As I’m not much of a fan of greenery in a photograph, I decided to completely remove natural colours from the background and give the center stage to more cold colours and accentuated highlights.  What I enjoy about this photo is that it displays Katherine’s natural beauty in a more surreal environment.

On another note, the 13th annual Festival de Mode et Design de Montréal (Fashion and Design Festival) is on its way! I’m looking forward to a program organized and coordinated by fashion designer Jean-Charles de Castelbajac himself. The Montreal fashion community is ecstatic about his new position as honorary chairman for FDF and the show will no doubt prove to be impressive. If you’re in Montreal, be sure to come by for the runway shows and events on McGill College from July 31st to August 3rd.  I’m personally looking forward to “Fantomes” by JC de Castelbajac, the high-heel race and the unveiling of the Jacob “35 ans de chic” anniversary dress.  You may view the entire Fashion and Design Festival schedule online.

Have a good week!

      Thanks Anna, this comment makes me so happy! Glad someone appreciates the work of a novice. I’m still trying to figure out the technical parts but making the most of my aesthetic taste at the moment. There will definitely be more to come this summer.
