prom-girls put on a pedestal

Post by window dressee » Fri Jan 11, 2013 3:15 am

My very personal favorite are pics of formal and bridal dresses;
the gowns itself are great;
from brides you find "getting ready pics" together with her posing statuesque in her gown - a great combination of "still able to move" and almost immobile ...

prom models are posing often mannequinlike, and every few years a designer put the models literally on a pedestal:
e.g. Jovani 2008: http://www.promdresshere.com/jovani-pro ... dress.html ...
e.g. http://www.shopdress.com/Panoply-14447.html
e.g. http://www.shopdress.com/Alyce-3434.html

Excellent find! Some of these models look ready to be posed in the window just as they are...

There is a new collection of girls in cocktail dresses and evening gowns on plattforms:
Kathy Hilton places her models on white square platforms!

Besides Kathy's own homepage, looks also at resellers like bestbridalprices and newyorkdress - the resellers show more of the platform than the designer herself ...

keep fingers crossed the pics are online for longer time!
(the 2008-collection is almost completly offline :-( )

PS: according to wikipedia, Kathy is the mother of "The Paris Hilton"

this year I found also some pics with girls posing on a pedestal, more or less mannequin-like:

Tony Bowls:
search with "Tony Bowls TBC005" (and tbc008, tbc010, tbc013, and you might try also some other number between 001 and 022);

Sheri Hill:
look into the 2013 collections on sherrihill.com and sherrihill.de / .hr
(I don't know why I found them just now, more than one year after publishing);
some models I want to highlight:
1542: first just one girl and a spare pedestal, then 2 models;
1589, 2985, 11006, 11023: just striking a mannequin.like pose ...;
1606: one pose together with a man, second pose she is alone;
8512: 2 poses, both with a man guiding her pose;
11020: 2 poses
21010: 5 poses, same girl in same dress, all on pedestal, but different settings;
21035: different pedestal; alone, and together with a man;
21048: yet another pedestal; checking her already mannequinized(?) arm;
21055: 2 poses: back, as if just mounted; front, holding mannequin-like pose;

this time, "Val Stefani Prom" (on bestbridalprices.com in 'evening dress') has put there models on a square platform,
and many times there are 2 girls on the platform,
one posing rather ... formally-stiff, the other touching her, curious what happened to her friend (and soon will happen to herself).

I photo-manipulated pair 2852RX into a mannequin with joints,
while the other is examining the hard shoulder with the jointline.
From all pics and models, this one was my favourite:
no hand, hair or dress is hiding any shoulder-joint,
the wrist-joints are visible on both arms,
and the examining girls is looking onto the mannequin-shoulder she examins!

The result is uploaded onto my dviantart-account:
just joints: http://windowdressee.deviantart.com/art ... -565838468
partially disassembled: http://windowdressee.deviantart.com/art ... -565840127

Enjoy!

in 2015, Marchesa had a wedding fashion show,
where each model had its own "platform":
larger and higher than just a (mannequin) pedestal (about 1.5 foot high, 4 x 8 feet width x length);
some sort of personal small runway, large enough for few steps up and down,
but for the photographer, most models strike a pose.

google with "marchesa wedding backstage", maybe add "2015";
sites with many and large pictures:
bridalmusings.com,
weddingjhire.ie
fashionweekdaily.com
weddingbells.ca

In current season,
there are several fashion shows putting their models onto pedestals!

Marchesa:
(once again; since 2015, they do it every year on the same location;
therefore, you might combine the picture-search "marchesa bridal show" with 2016, 2017 or 2018, spring or fall;
and there is also "notte" where the models pose on not soo white, but natural wood platforms)

Lela Rose:
this designer had formerly a few models on small pedestals, but this time each girl is on its own pedestal, and all simultanously;
and not in-house, but in a garden or park!
look for Lela Rose fall 2018

Emine Yildirim:
not sure how to find this the simplest way, as it seems to have turkish keywords;
"Emine Yıldırım 2018 AURA Collection" is a good approximation,
and the vimeo-video https://vimeo.com/245600374 shows,
that the gowns are first on tailor's dummies, then the models are made up, then the models are standing on the wooden pedestals,
the contemplative music and the designer enters tage, says thank you and only the musicians move ...
