Persian Lily "Design by Alexa CASTILLO"


The SKIRT is named Persian Lily, a flower found in Imperial Gardens.  Inspiration was found in Vampire Stories read in Art and Films from Japanese animation and Hollywood movies.  It is a modern aristocrat look with an edgy theme.




















Metropolitan stairs, a colorful mural, a dark ally and the model were chosen to resemble modern vampire films.  We contrasted the theme and the model to set an elegant fantasy in a gritty city block .






















































Rich silks and romantic laces from the skirt add high quality glamour. The short length of the skirt styles well with the turtleneck, strappy heels, smoky eyes and a swept up back hairdo completing the look by dramatizing it with edgy highlights, making the look of Modern Monarchy.

False Promise "Design by Alexa CASTILLO"

The DRESS is named False Promise, a flower found in Imperial Gardens.  Inspiration was found in Vampire Stories read in Art and Films from Japanese animation and Hollywood movies.  A modern aristocratic style named with a fairytale theme made the perfect inspiration.

























































The shell of a classic car is parked in the forest of a nearby manor and the model is made to be a modern vampire.  The theme combined with the model set an air of fairytale fantasy.  









































































The rich silk, romantic lace, corset and silhouette of the dress added glamour; stylizing it with sparkling heel, smoky eyes, red lips and big hairdo completed a look of Modern Monarchy.
