Alice in Wonderland was one of my favorite fairy tales from my childhood. It still is a timeless classic for most people and it has also has been an inspiration to artists and designers alike . As the sequel to Tim Burton’s first movie, “Alice Through The Looking Glass,” is currently out, me and my team came up with a whimsical photo shoot inspired by the magical world of Wonderland.
We decided to go with a more modern and punk rock spin off the classic style. I’m wearing a short blue mini dress accented with a black tulle skirt and a pink floral fascinator. My hair was also sprayed with a bright pink hair dye. To pay homage to the White Rabbit and complete the outfit I’m wearing a pocket watch on a pearl necklace.
The Mad Hatter played by model Corey Petett, is wearing a suit with a purple shirt, a modern hat and a mix of quirky accessories pinned onto this jacket. He is an eclectic character after all who loves to pick up interesting things.
A fun fact for this photo shoot was it was shot in an abandoned mansion on top of a steep hill overgrown with vines and covered with moss. It actually used to be inhabited by royalty. We had to hike all the way up to the hill for this shoot! But it was worth it as it added a fairy tale like backdrop for the shoot.
I’d like to credit the amazing photographer Gladys Ng for her artistic direction and wonderful photography work! It was a such a fun experience to work with a team of determined and gifted people!
Here are some outfits that are inspired by Alice in Wonderland and I must say, they are in a style that’s similar to the movie:
