I’ve been thinking about doing this project for a while now and finally it is coming to fruition! I have all of these amazing garments at home that need to have a photographic moment. For those of you that don’t know, I’m a PhilaU senior, majoring in Fashion Merchandising & Management. I had been considering the option of starting a fashion blog, but decided that I didn’t want to limit myself only to a particular topic. Also, I wanted to team up with creative individuals and make it into something much bigger that just an outfit post. After some contemplation, I came up with an idea of collaborating with local photographers (based in Philadelphia or areas surrounding it) in order to showcase their photographic vision through an outfit.
For this outfit, I worked with Jay Kan from Jay Kan Photography. It’s such a pleasure working with someone on the level of professionalism as Jay. His meticulous eye to the lighting and detail is very impressive.
The location we chose to shoot in was the abandoned Reading Viaduct in Philadelphia. The graffiti and fences gave of a chilly feeling which mixed well with the outfit colors. Also, the grey raining sky helped with the overall ambience of the photo.
