Revival: Renaissance of Style
Matthew’s project came about through his love of the 1940’s-50’s style, and the longing for them to come back. Using Horst and the book “The Golden age of Couture” as his main inspiration, Matthew wanted to recapture the art of dressing through fashion photography. As the 1950’s are beginning to have a slow come back, he wanted to help show the real style of the times. With Dior as a guide, he wants to banish all ideas the stereotypical pin-up, replacing it with a new, “New look” (Dior, 1947) reminiscent of the times.
