Once upon a time in China

with No Comments

They’re the places where time appears to stand still, the same places where a whisper of oriental flavor suffices to spark the illusion of an ancient, living, breathing universe, harbored safely in the heart of the urban jungle but playing by its own rules, seeming forbidden and inviting at once; places made of shadows and lights, where cultures clash and fairytales are being summoned to life … once upon a time in China.

Lauren Trotter does the Asian heroine lensed by Katya Tsyganova, her wardrobe (styled by Aisha Rae) embodying her Orientalist penchant with traditional motifs adorning contemporary silhouettes, with the old glamour being remixed into the new, a tribute to Asia rewritten in golden ink.

Dramatic make-up by Crystal Liz and blunt hair by Castillo round off the series of images that you can check out in full at the gallery above.
