Entry Description:

This is a six-page fashion spread, based on Sophia Coppola's film The Virgin Suicides. The film revolves around all of the girls committing suicide after being stifled by their overprotective, and religious parents. The film set in the 1970's provided an excellent jumping off point to show retro fashion trends in an edgy unexpected way. The remaining three images are from a series of diptychs and triptychs based around urban style.
