We were approached by Savannah College of Art and Design in collaboration with Rizzoli Publishing to produce a monograph for the visionary fashion designer Guo Pei.

While we were originally familiar with her name in connection to the 2015 Met Gala dress she fashioned for Rihanna, we quickly became enamored with her work. Looking through her designs was like pulling clothing straight out of Alice in Wonderland so we naturally went the route of creating fairytale worlds for them to live in.

The series of images were used in an art book called "Guo Pei: Couture Beyond" to showcase her work as inspiration to the western world. As the creative director and retoucher for HOWL, a traveling photo collective, it was my job to bring these images into the fantasy realm.

Over the course of 3 weeks and 13 locations in the deep south, Elliot Ross, Forest Woodward, Patrick O'Brien and I created 130 original images to be used in her book, 'Beyond Couture.'

We hope you enjoy them!

Wow, this is very creative. Incredible idea, to inspire yourself with forest mushrooms. And this root on the left looks like a body of dryad. Amazing shoot.

I like this design in the front. It looks simpler than most of these and looks very well-considered. These gold ornaments are bautiful. It looks a bit Far Eastern (and I really like this). And it is so magical, both dresses and this scenery.

Scenery like from "Alice in Wonderland". And model in the front is stunning. I'm not convinced of these specific outfits, but the picture itself is beautiful.
