The images in my latest post are not another set of pretty pictures but rather a compilation of absurd posing with meaningful messages. Shooting the following sartorial spread felt like an adventurous day with a lovely photographer. While my younger sister Michelle and myself with the assistance of Arthur ‘The Photographer,’ loaded the car with personal items from our father’s office, we wanted to have fun and make the most out of this experience– just like our dad would always do! Despite these tragic circumstances, we decided to curate a spread with ridiculously silly faces and outright immature posing. Nonetheless, we all had a blast in the process! One of my dad’s favorite things to do was to buy treasures and trinkets, which can be seen all over our home and his office. Thus, combining my lust for contemporary aesthetics with my father’s collectables and chachkas, we conceived an idyllic photo shoot, which represented my dad’s incredibly goofy humor and playful personality– in a fashion-forward way, of course. From boats and vintage antiques to boxing equipment and stuffed toys, each of these objects symbolize an invaluable memory, which my dad deeply cherished. Regarding the clothing, I was bound to sport my studded Steve Madden flats, which I combined with Michelle’s boyfriend jeans, my mom’s belt from the 70′s, my Marc Jacobs t-shirt and J-Crew tweed jacket.
