"Iain Crawford loves to capture images that have a strong graphic and textural quality, often searching out the graphical symmetry in chaos, while still maintaining the personality and emotion of the subject. His career has lead him to shoot campaigns for many of the world’s top brands and receive commissions from a host of top international magazines."

We have touched on the idea of high fashion using skeletal make-up styles for shoots, and we are especially impressed by French photographer Pauline Darley for Ever Magazine, where model Clémentine Levy is touched up with a ghostly look. Elegant and subtle.

Basic geometric forms and good use of colors are hard to turn down, and Saskia Pomeroy is an artist and illustrator working out of London who seems to know this well. Her commercial clients are a respectable list including Folk Clothing, Topman and H & M. Her use of pattern and illustration work equally well for fashion as for a fine art print.

You can now eat luxury (and there are a ton of people who gobble up LV goods like they are waffles, and we are pretty sure that LV makes their low end bags like waffles). OTIS graduate Andrew Lewicki has created one of our favorite sculptures of the year; the Louis Vuitton Waffle Maker. Waffles from here go for $32. Joking. Not really.

The work was part of Britain Creates 2012: Fashion + Art Collusion, where leading British fashion designers and visual artists collaborate in a ground-breaking series of works commissioned as part of the London 2012 Festival.

The simple idea; reimagine food as fashion. Fulvio Bonavia had a fantastic book, A Matter of Taste, that was released a few years ago, featuring photography of food as fashion pieces. Rasberrry bags, sardine belts, and artichoke hats could possibly be one day, high fashion.
