Who says fashion is only for soft delicate women? Discover our AI-assisted fashion editorial inspired by the Grand Canyon, where beauty meets power.
Do you know how canyons are formed? The pressure, weathering and erosion of soil and rock over thousands or millions of years hardens it, giving it those beautiful layers, colors and patterns. That’s precisely how strong women are made. Years of pressure and weathering that try to cut through our soul, actually toughen it up, creating layers in our personality. That’s what gives us our beautiful strength. That’s how you become confident.
And that’s the inspiration for my fashion editorial today.
This fashion shoot is a part of my AI-assisted editorial series. Please read more about the concept and process here: Burlesque X Modesty: AI Fashion Editorial Series – 01.
Ask most artists and designers on what inspires them, and the answer is most often “nature”. But nature isn’t just softer elements like flowers, leaves and twigs, it’s also the hard elements like canyons and rocks. And what would be more suitable for the modern woman than something that’s just as tough as her?
My trip to the Grand Canyon inspired me for this – so awe-inspiring, so grand. The canyon and rock theme would be perfect for the working woman’s everyday wear, with fluid silhouettes and solid colors. Pieces can include pantsuits with crop jackets, long faux-leather jackets, oversized sweaters, long A-line skirts, structured bodysuits and patterned gowns. While the waves on the silhouettes resemble the canyon formations, nothing is flimsy about this collection – it’s all opaque, wearable fabrics.
Another interpretation of this theme is couture gowns with geode patterns and colors imagined with many layers of fabric.
There’s lots of color blocking in an earthy palette including tan, mustard, beige, fossil grey and semi-precious stone colors like amber, lapis lazuli and amazonite. There can also be some patterns resembling the rough stones and geodes.
