Here are my images that I did in the studio. I used modern clothes that incorporate aspects of 80s fashion such as:
I had to do the hair and makeup myself in the end because the student that agreed to help me pulled out at the last minute. This worried me because I did not want this to let my images down. However I feel that I did a good job.
In the morning I had to run out and buy blue eye shadow for the model’s 80s makeup, but luckily I already had the right foundation as well as black and white eye shadow to complete the look myself.
I was lucky as well because my mum put the rollers in my sister’s hair in the morning before she went to work, so I could complete the curled, backcombed styles. Also I already had crimpers and knew how to use them.
I did not want to copy the 80s look but wanted to take aspects of 80s fashion and incorporate them into my modern fashion images. I feel that my images below have achieved this.
