Fashion Unit: Readings & Visual References

Ref: Miles Aldridge. As an initial support with the unit, please see the presentation outlining possible themes in response to the project, along with what I hope you find as inspirational imagery. Below are series of readings to help with your understanding of the different roles that exist within Fashion Photography. The readings are interviews of some the leading players in the industry, taken from Charlotte Cotton’s excellent text, Imperfect Beauty. This is a great way into learning about the role of Art Director, Stylist and Photographer and whilst I have asked each group to feedback on the individuals, you’d be advise to read all of the papers.

I mentioned a text at the end of todays session (Friday, 31st January) which is on your brief, titled: Basics: Fashion Design – Styling, by Jaqueline McAssey and Clare Buckley.

Please see the pdf below form Chapter 2. Do not that an electronic version is available on line via the library catalogue.
