wut is it? A photo-shoot I came across in Purple magazine that would be my styling dream come true; styling a shoot in an art exhibition.
The marriage: Carsten Holler Experience at the New Museum last fall with Purple Magazine. Photographed by Nathaniel Goldberg and styled by Naomi Itkes, famous stylist and Fashion editor from Sweden, this dream team perfectly balanced art with the art of fashion. The model blends in with the exhibition, but also stands out as a piece of art herself, the clothing serving as the platform.
I visited the exhibition last fall, and was very intrigued. Holler created spaces that are meant to make you uncomfortable and think about perception. He also plays with the state of mind, specifically when altered by drugs. The rest of the exhibition felt like a playground, with a marry-go-round on the 4th floor, and a slide that whipped you literally through the floors of the building.
