Seasons of Couture – A Midsummer Night’s Dream

season of couture_1

For the June 2013 issue of the BoSL Magazine, I had the great pleasure to work with Natzuka again. Our fresh crowned MVW 2013, was always a person I adored for her photography skills and for the person she is. So you can imagine how happy I was, when Persia asked me if I would like to work with Natzuka for a spread for Seasons of Couture… for sure I would like, what a question!

season of couture_2

Seasons of Couture… what is that you might ask. Seasons of Couture is a special project by BoSL & Co. Over 20 of the best designers on the grid, created RL inspired seasonal styles. At the Seasons of Couture you can get the designs for 30% off the retail price, but only a 100 of each. After that 100 they will go with the regular prize to the designers Mainstores.

season of couture_3

So Natzuka and me went to the Seasons of Couture store at the Renaissance Galleria. She was supposed to do the pictures and I thought she will choose the ones, that go best together for the pictures. As she asked me wich ones I liked the most… I totally was surprised and super happy and for sure 2 black designs by Azull Ash and¬† YK jumped into my eyes, as my most favourite color is black. Natzuka chose 2 great contrast colors to the black by ghee and SoliDea FoliEs and I got more and more excited what the pics will look like. She showed me some ideas of RL graphics and pictures, what she had in mind and my jaw dropped down. The ideas looked amazing and with Natzuka’s skills I was sure, if someone can pull that out, it is her. But we still needed 2 more outfits to make a total of 4 pics, with always the both of us and it really was a hard choice with all the amazing creations that we saw. All of a sudden Natzuka pointed on a pink dress and I saw her face expression… she looked lightly evil with a huge grin as her finger pointed towards a wonderful design of Bliss Couture but in pink! I got scared… she knows my pink allergy and I really thought she wanna torture me, but her face became all smooth and nice again, as she said: “I like this one” and my muscles relaxed again. She looked further and asked me what I think about a light green even some teal looking color to the pink and pulled me towards a design of Sonatta Morales. I thought it is a tough combination but if she can see it in front of her inner eye, I trust her. You can see exactly that combination on the picture above and it was one of the most amazing pictures I ever saw, so yes this woman really knows her job and I again got proved it did right by trusting her. For the last picture she decided to go on a gold and white combination, a very elegant one by Countdown and Azull Ash. If I look over all this 4 pictures I guess we found a real nice mixture that show, how many different styles you can find at the Seasons of Couture. Anyways if formal, elegant, avantgarde, casual or what ever you look for, you always will find something that matches your styling ideas.

For the credits of the outfits you can take a look at the actual BoSL Magazin (http://magazine.thebestofsl.com/fashion/june-2013)

Thanks a lot Persia for the opportunity <3

Thanks so much Natzuka, for this incredible amazing pictures and the time we spent for making them. It is always fun to work or hang out with you ūüôā
