“Reorganise” is a fashion editorial based on introducing colour, texture and print to the organised world and re organising it via high fashion styling. The colour palette consists of on trend feminine, fun eclectic colours including lavender, mustard yellow, dusky pink, magenta and teal. The aim is to make the viewer experience a workspace they have never experienced before. Hence, the set design is based on an office setup painted in block colours with clean shapes to juxtapose and compliment the prints and textures of the garments and accessories. This demonstrates contrast, defines shape and scale. “Reorganise” is also breaking the norm of wearing black and white in a work setting. The editorial is designed with eccentric office/fashion vignette shots juxtaposing with playful fashion macro shots to represent the silence of the chaotic work life.
