Theme: Streetwear Fashion
Streetwear is a style of casual clothing which became global in the 1990s. It grew from New York hip hop fashion and Californian surf culture to encompass elements of sportswear, punk, skateboarding, Japanese street fashion, & haute couture. Feel free to rock vintage, contemporary, or futuristic looks. For those looking capture a 90's vibe: American sportswear brands had a huge impact on 90'streetwear fashion, most notably Polo Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger, Adidas, Kangol, Starter, Champion, and Supreme - as did cultural brands like FUBU, Phat Farm, Baby Phat, Pelle Pelle, Ecko, and Wu Wear. Please remember: we celebrate diversity, body positivity, self-expression and creativity. Our theme is not a costume. Incorporate your own unique style into your look, let us know if you have any questions, and don't be afraid to get wierd.
Please arrive dressed in theme and ready to shoot. Cashed Out Vintage will have a curated collection of streetwear inspired fashion available for models to incporate into their look (with a prize at the end to the model who gets most creative with their items). Consider October weather and expect to layer up or down, bring base neutrals you're confident in, and comfortable shoes to take full advantage of the space. Models will have their own dedicated changing space inside the Mill. Check-in, meet fellow creatives, browse the space for inspiring locations to shoot, & sample lighting by Hunt's Photo & Video. Dynasty Models INC will be on hand to help assist with posing & inspire creativity. Please be prepared to work with many different photographers and models in short micro sessions. Please try and arrive by 3:30pm. Introductions start at 5pm.
