Mood Board

Final Illustration Boards

Features Board

These samples are the key features of my collection. The nipple buttons, the burlesque underwear and frilly femine fabrics on a man. I like the close up of the soft skin, nipples and hair.

Colour Board

Trying the film strip layout. Needed to lighten it up a lot from the firs prin. Really like the texture of the leather wrinkles comming through. Looks like skin.

Working on my Range Plan

In my range plan, there is not too many selection of colours because I wanted to keep it all in a tight colour range. I wanted the choice to be in nude flesh tones or black. Therefore it can easily be matched with any garment and I like the idea of the 50's style matching skirt and top conbination.

 Titles for my range plan.
This s my favourite image representing my collection, how the garmetns are to be worn and the vouristic feel. I really like the tv stripes to make the viewer feel as they are looking throught a tv screen.

In this image I have tried the title  as in fades in in movies.
My images I took were slightly blury because I could't get strong enough lighting or a tripod, but I think in this case this effect works.

Images from my Photo Shoot

I have tried to take voyeuristic, dark style photographs almost of an old fashioned porn scene. I have been trying to represent gender bending though a male model in feminine clothing to try and express the beauty in cross dressing. 
 Potential Fabric and colour board. Shows the natural skin tones, with my fabric i have used in the garments on a dark background.
 An example of how the nipple necklace could be worn. Would be good on the features page.

 I really like this voyeuristic angle. Looking through the door, like you are walking in on something private.
 I have tried showing the idea of turing the "gaze" onto yourself. So by choosing the clothing you are in control. However as I did not have access to a tri pod this did not translate so well in film.
 Experimenting with ways to use and incorporate the fur.

 I love this image. Shows my concept of gender bending drag, bondage with a almost pornographic pin up aspect.

One of the garments I have made.

Presentation Styles

I have been looking at ways to present my boards. I want to keep the voyeurism aspect. I want to reflect the concept of "the gaze". The gaze was originally a concept talking about how women were objectified in art. When they did not look at the camera they were letting the men watch them. I want to use "the gaze" but show how ideas about women and men have changed, and a power shift. I think by having the style of the Agent Provocateur add below in a voyeuristic film still- but with an androgynous male model, this could be a good way to represent my idea.
 I really like the dark lighting. Almost black and white with skin tones- like my collection. I also like the time running. Shows the film element well.
 I have also been looking contact sheets to show my range plan, mood board... The grid is an interesting layout and reflects my concept.

I like the black and white element. I want to keep a very dark background, keeps a clean, professional, film strip and voyeuristic feel.

Could take images in a slow progression. Could be an idea for the mood or illustration boards?

I want to try a male model in pin up style poses.
Before the photo shoot I need make more of my designs to show my concept.
