Elena is a Russian model who lives in Taipei because she is an university student here. Marina, a Taiwanese friend and makeup artist, introduced us and the three of us headed to the Botanical Garden to do a photo shooting. Elena has a lot of modeling experience, both in Russia and Taiwan. You can see it specially in the close-up photos, where her powerful gaze hypnotises the camera.
In the portraits it is also where you can better appreciate the wonderful makeup styled by Marina, so talented! If you want to know more about Marina’s work, you can check her blog.
For the first set of photos, Elena was wearing a black jacket, a sleeveless orange top, black shorts, tights with vertical pattern, and black shoes. Her complements were long earrings and a long necklace. I love the contrast between the black clothes and the earth tones against the super green background.
This beautiful red-haired girl is Marlena, a fashion and travel photographer from United States. She is in Taiwan for a few months and we both attended the Taipei In Style fashion fair. You can check and enjoy her work here and here!
On that day, Marlena was wearing a long beige cardigan over a blouse with floral print, high waisted black shorts, black tights, and brown boots. Her complements were a black hat, her backpack, a ring and her inseparable Canon camera.
Vera is 24 years old and as an English teacher in a kindergarden.
She was wearing an extra long cardigan with a gradient from white to black, white shirt, maroon shorts with small mustard polka dots, black tights with a flower pattern, and brown leather shoes.
Her complements were a golden watch, some bracelets, and a light brown leather handbag from Gianni Chiarini.
Emma is 29 years old and she was around the Zhongxiao Dunhua area when I met her.
She was wearing a beige coat from Zara, a denim shirt, a stripped skirt, black tights, brown socks, and maroon patent-leather shoes, bought at 新竹大成街. Emma’s complements were a dark blue beret and an orange leather handbag.
Urit is 27 years old and works as a design assistant. I met her in the area of Zhongxiao Dunhua in Taipei.
She was wearing a grey hooded coat, over a shirt sweater, black tights, and black shoes with platform. Her complements were a green umbrella with big white polka dots, and a turquoise handbag with a small yellow lightning, that Urit bought online.
