Babes in Finland
Wintertime is most often associated with Christmas, toys and fun so why not take fashion and make it part of an irreverent tale inspired by the 1960’s and 1970’s Holiday movies like “Babes in Toyland” “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang” and “Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory”.
From the toy wooden soldiers to the over-the-top fur wearing villains we can agree that these classics were full of color and a strong character that made the films the classics we know today.
This is also the first time I shoot with Mexican brands in Finland, of course with some Finnish favorites like Ivana Helsinki and the new ethic fur company Marita Huurinainen (Yes its fur but its only animals who are run over or hunted for food rather than those horrible fur farms)
Here are some pictures, I landed last night after some 20 hours of travel so the rest will come later today.
All pictures shot by me with the help of talented young fashion design students of NOVIA in Vaasa, either in makeup hair or modelling.
