Phone Box Fashion

Jessie Phone Box 2#

 

Earlier this month, I moved into my first proper house, albeit a student house, shared with two lovely fellow students and friends, but it is cosy and homey and much nicer than most of the flea-infested monstrosities that we looked around last spring during the all-important house hunting. It took me exactly two days to notice the rusty old phone box that lies on the main road between our house and Derby city centre, and about ten days to then organise a photo shoot focused around the phone booth.

We’ve all seen countless red phone booth photo shoots, mostly featuring twee, vintage, stereotypical English wardrobes. I wanted to break away from that mould, and so I collaborated with model and dancer Jessie, to create something which I hope has succeeded in being just that little bit more edgy. We decided to restrict the colour scheme, allowing the phone box to do the talking, with just a pop of red lipstick to tie it all together. I admit, a small part of me wondered how well Jessie’s hair colour would suit the bright red box – would auburn and red clash? – but no, it all ties together nicely, doesn’t?

A touch of blue was added to our shadows in post production, and voila. I for one am extremely happy with the results. It’s amazing how many dancer’s poses can be achieved in such a confined space! A big shout out has to go out to Jessie for one that, for her constant stream of ideas and creativity.
