Image /62 Models
Can you believe NZ Fashion Week is only a month away? Crazytown. The campaign imagery has just been released in Fashion Week's official magazine The Guide (put out by Remix Magazine), but hasn't yet graced the Fashion Week website. Shot by top NZ photographer Derek Henderson and styled by Chris Lorimer, the campaign stars Lily Montana (62 models) as a sexy pin up girl dressed in her real-life boyfriend Marc Moore's label Stolen Girlfriends Club.
Lily's pose on the wing of a US military plane (?) is reminscent of World War Two artworks - I believe at the time airforce pilots had pictures of attractive girls painted on the sides of their planes for good luck. I did a little Google search for 'aeroplane pin up girls', and this original image popped up immediately - you can see the similarities. If you're wondering what fashion has to do with aeroplanes, Air New Zealand is the name sponsor of Fashion Week, so all the campaigns have featured planes in some capacity since they came on board.
