Mixing the nostalgia of the 80s with present-day trends, this styled shoot is hella good! As we prepare to welcome a new year, turning back time to a decade with tons of iconic fashion mixed with a welcoming uniqueness just felt right. Needless to say this team in Vancouver B.C. made it all happen.
“In a Post Modernist world, the 80s had very unlikely yet successful design movements that are currently resurging among contemporary tastemakers today,” says creative director Angelina Corona of Domestic Embellishment. “We are artists that love to push the boundaries and bring more diversity to mainstream media.”
Everything from bright colors, neon signs, bold fonts, and a rock-n-roll flair all made an appearance in this gnarly design. As for attire, two utterly stylish looks fused the past with present; presenting us with a sultry daytime vibe for popping confetti, with a glammed up nighttime getup perfect for popping champagne.
“While designing this shoot I found myself listening to a lot of disco so I knew we had to have a boogie vibe going on: glitter, gold and holographic elements reminiscent of glitzy parties that rock stars and supermodels would attend in the 80s,” says Angelina. “I can’t stand literal renditions so we had to portray a disco vibe without disco balls. I had been wanting to achieve this vision I had of melting florals displayed in an avant-garde fashion. Music, lights, lasers, what else would you find at the club? Projection mapping of course! I’d been wanting to work with more tech infused into live events as Vancouver is pretty behind the times and this was the perfect opportunity to combine custom projected motion graphics with the decor.”
Angelina continues, “My mission is to inspire others and facilitate a celebration clients can call their own based on their personal style that’s meaningful and an experience they can share with their guests. There’s no reason to fit your personal style into someone else’s cookie cutter ideal of what celebrating love looks like.”
