Photographer Alejandro Zuluaga @alejandrozuluaga.ph worked with the model Tomás Restrepo @tomasrestrepofr represented by Contacto Basico @contactobasicomodelmgmt for this fashion editorial exclusively created for Vanity Teen online!
“I wanted to tell a story that reflects the duality between feminine and masculine, breaking down the barriers of having to dress according to gender and stereotypes,” says the photographer. “Music is one of my biggest inspirations, recently I’ve been connecting a lot with Harry Styles’ music and that was the inspiration for the editorial, his style, and attitude.”
“The idea I had was a model with a masculine attitude and through the wardrobe to combine that feminine side, we worked with several pose referents to guide the model, as well as we tried different garments for the styling until we achieved what the whole team dreamed of.”
The photographer used a Nikon 5200 and warm artificial lighting and they shot it in his studio located in the outskirts of the city of Medellin, Colombia, a quiet place surrounded by nature, although the editorial work with artificial light, the studio has a large window that allows the entry of natural light and fresh air.
“Fashion does not only exist in dresses. Fashion is in the sky, in the streets, fashion is about ideas, the way we live and what is happening.”Coco Chanel
“The model felt very comfortable during the session, he did not mind posing with female
clothes, it was a different and challenging experience for him,” commented the photographer. The wardrobe is made up of different garments and accessories from Colombian designers, with some vintage garments owned by the stylist Daniel Echeverry @danieldoble_e.
