Trend styling specialist PETRA WIEBE organized further editorial shoots during the times of Covid on the dreamlike Maldive Islands against a heavenly soft natural backdrop. In her selection of high fashion styles, she relied on brands such as Chanel, Prada, Marcel Ostertag, Alexander Mc Queen, Horror Vacui, Tory Burch as well as lush couture by Ali Younes from Beirut. The fashion was staged by London resident, star photographer Luis Monteiro, and hair & make-up of Paula Schinschel c/o Modelwerk were taken care of by Casten Richert.
The Maldives are located west of Sri Lanka and consist of around 1,200 islands and 26 atolls. Not only the turquoise-blue ocean, but also the green tropical nature make it the perfect island paradise. The sandbanks extending endlessly into the ocean with powdery soft coral sand and crystal clear water provide the perfect setting for photo and video productions. PETRA WIEBE will gladly send you an offer for a production in paradise.
The second production is all about fashion in the color yellow. The energetic color is a real eye-catcher, and outfits in the easily visible hue look vibrant while still exuding a feeling of lightness. Yellow puts you in a cheerful mood, makes you optimistic, stimulates memory and communication, which is why it is considered the color of intelligence and creativity. The Pantone Institute chose optimistic yellow together with gray as the Color of the Year 2021 and, by doing so, conveys a message of strength and hopefulness. Plus, yellow is miraculously combinable and thus a color frequently used by the top stylist.
