Bubbly for Fashion Photos

With museum fashion exhibitions attracting record-breaking attendance and stylish lines

twisting around city blocks, the answer to the question of whether fashion is art should be crystal clear by now. Do any of us need further evidence of the art of fashion than the Met Gala? Swoon. And then there are the fashion magazines. At 800 pages, this year’s September issue of Vogue weighs four pounds, and with great anticipation, we clear our schedules, pour our favorite drink, curl up with our copies and fantasize as we flip the pages.

Fashion photography has been seducing society since as far back as the early 1900s. What began simply as a means to advertise clothing has transformed into something far more fantastic. Modern fashion photography transports us—to the beaches of the South Pacific, to the city of Paris, to snow covered mountaintops—with visions of wearing something fabulous.

Every fashion shoot is a collaborative effort —photographers, models, stylists, hair and makeup artists are visual storytellers. Whether created for the sake of advertisement or editorial, fashion images are statement making. Designed for the clothing to play the starring role, all of the elements combine to reveal the big picture and cause a reaction. Frame by frame, we are invited to dream as photography brings the fashion to life.

You’re invited to celebrate fashion photography at the Florida Museum of Photographic Arts (FMoPA) in downtown Tampa (400 N. Ashley Drive) on Thursday, Sept. 22 from 11a.m. – 1p.m. Step inside the Cube at lunchtime for Fashion Photos & Prosecco with cupcakes on the side. At noon, Leslie Joy Ickowitz, VERTICAL Tampa Bay magazine Founder and Editor-in-Chief, will deliver a fashion photography presentation.
