Fashion photography theme: Blue Mermaid

The final product has arrived, for the "Blue Mermaid" themed fashion photography collaboration, conducted here at my Sydney Eastern Suburbs studio yesterday.

Model: Blue MC - singer from the band "The Potbelleez".
Dress designer: Rosalynn Win Couture, Fashion Designer.
Hair and Make-up: Tiffany Beckwith-Skinner.
Set designer, art direction and photographer: Markham Lane

"Blue Mermaid uses Bubbles from the Sea to find the wayward sailor"
The theme originated from Blue's spiritual fantasy of the mythical mermaid. Her love of this sea creature is permanently tattooed on her back and just looking at it, we were all inspired to take that energy and give it new life. This image is a homage to that Art Neuveau skin decoration.
Rosalynn Win designs bridal gowns, couture ball gowns and evening dresses. This dress was inspired, in part, by the mermaid theme (hence the long "fish tail" at the back of the dress and the "scalloping" created by the tulle imported from the USA) and also in part by Mr. Alex Perry's recent "Arabian Princesses" fashion parade during Australian Fashion Week.
