The 52-week photography project: fashion statements

Most of us think that the only people who wear costumes are performers on stage. I would disagree with that assessment. I think that we wear costumes that say who we are at any particular time or place. These costumes are called fashion. My concept of fashion is that it is all about personal style, about how a person’s manner of dressing tells a story about that person. Fashion can be dramatic, subtle, or fun. It can be creative and imaginative. There is no limits to fashion. 


Taking pictures of people’s fashion statements was great fun. Their fashion statements ranged from Halloween costumes to animal prints. It was all fun and colorful, and I truly loved my week as a fashion photographer.

Fairy tale fashion. Snow White and six of the seven dwarves offer fashion at its most colorful. Remember not to accept apples from strangers!

Framed artwork painting as fashion. Meet the three-dimensional Mona Lisa.
Historic person re-enactment fashion. The fashion statement is in reproducing the look that makes you believe that the re-enactor is the historic person. Meet actor Albert McFadyen as President Franklin D. Roosevelt.
Autumnal colors are exciting, dramatic, and fun.


Fashion among friends.

Your job may determine the fashion statement that you make. Priestly fashion.

Animal prints add excitement and pizzazz.

Sisters and their colorful fashion statements.

Next week: check back next week for the continuation of the 52-week photography project.

  1. You must have had so much fun. I love the autumn colors. And the Snow White one is pretty awesome. Loved the idea.

  2. Anamika Agnihotri

    It seems like a fun project. My favourites are snow white and the 7 dwarfs and the 3-dimensional Monalisa.

  3. great subject matter. I dress pretty much the same all the time (Goodwill modern) but I do add a different hat now and then. I don't usually wear a hat so that becomes a fashion statement.
