Whelve & Arcadian
On the second day we took the workshop attendees to a secluded beach near Elk for a late afternoon shoot featuring two bridal looks. Our first model Sierra personified Whelve (v.) to bury something deep; to hide. The exquisite details for this look included a stunning gown by Houghton NYC with a unique pod ring, gold leafing in her hair and gold shadow under the eye with a wild bouquet by Sarah Winward. Our second model Khloe embodied angelic purity with her word Arcadian (adj.) idyllically innocent; simple and untroubled by fear or worry. The unique Rubicon gown and three gold armbands were her only accessories, focusing more on her placement within the environment.
Joining these two models together at the end of the shoot was a lovely contrast of strength and fragility.
