Irony is never out of style; it’s always the new black. For this shoot, we paired cheap clothes from thrift stores with designer glasses, a light spring dress with chunky boots and used camouflage, stripes and graphic prints with plain tank tops and solid color skirts.
Not enough irony for you? We shot these models in places where campus fashion rarely ventures: places of industry, current and forgotten. Our models and photographers went to a workshop on North Campus, a lumberyard close to town and an abandoned train station in Detroit. Needless to say, right after we shot the photos, we booked it straight back to Central Campus.
What do fashion and industry have in common? Absolutely nothing. This spring, have fun. Play with your clothes. Mix patterns and graphics, pair loose clothes with tight, big with small, girly with punk, masculine with feminine, and cheap with luxe.
