Fashion Photography: “Plastic Fantastic” photographed by TOMAAS

“Plastic Fantastic”, the alluring fashion story captured by TOMAAS  is an exceptional depiction of plastic awareness in an artistic expression. The plastic material is an overwhelming textile with a versatile significance in our everyday life. It is the most common material used by the people becoming an integral part of our existence. This ubiquity of synthetic structure can also establish the meaning of “the new black” among materials that in other words can result in “fantastic” connotation.

The concept of «Plastic Fantastic» originated from the editorial called “Eco Beauty” focusing on materials that accompany us in a daily routine. This exceptional story had several publications in international magazines as well as an exhibition exposure at the Icon Gallery in Chelsea NYC. The creative research and production gave the team a great satisfaction so that they decided to compose a fashion story based on only one material – plastic. And this is how “Plastic Fantastic” was “born”. Together with the ethereal beauty of Lisette from Ford Models, the creative team achieved unique concept of synthetic fabric presentation with subconscious message from fashion.
