The Bride - Day of the Dead

By KatrienaEmmanuel  
My interpretation of Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos)

Series entitled "Once Upon a time in Mexico" - it was my submission to local fashion magazines, but alas no such luck.

I apologise in advance for the photo compression, pc is updating so stuffing around everything at moment

The approach in my interpretation of this theme was to highlight the beauty of this iconic festival from a fashion perspective through its exploration of central characters that appear in Latin American culture, art and literature. These characters are La Novia/ La Madona (the bride, the virginal representation of all that is good and holy reminiscent of the Virgin Mary);
The Team:-
Artistic Direction & Styling by Katriena Emmanuel
Hairstylist - Aleesha Darke
Makeup Artist for La Novia- Aleisha Gannon
La Novia - Kelly Hockey
Photographer & Retoucher - Katriena Emmanuel

I love the white of the death mask gradually fading into the pink of life towards her belly...the detail is exquisite...
