More Info: First In Flight
“First in Flight” is an exhibition of photographs recently created for a fashion story appearing in Anthem Magazine's winter issue. Art Directed by David J. Weissberg, photographed by Kiino Villand, wardrobe styled by Gena Tuso, with makeup by Kiki Benet and hair styled by Christian Marc, this exhibition is presented as a group project in which each member of the creative team played an integral role.
A portion of sales will benefit the Nick Traina Foundation
For the project, Villand photographed Vanessa Traina, a formally trained ballet dancer and front row fixture at the Paris couture shows. One of the fresher faces among the international jetset, Vanessa is on Vanity Fair's 2005 best dressed list along with her sister Victoria.
Clothing designers featured in “First in Flight” include Stella McCartney, Yohji Yamamoto, As Four, Jean Paul Gaultier, Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent and Agent Provocateur.
Accentuating the majestic qualities of the clothing, the team worked to create ethereal mid air moments of levity which include grande jetés and other graceful aerial maneuvers. With a discerning use of tonal range and shadow, combined with Traina’s classic and improvised dance techniques, “First in Flight” is an exquisite exploration of human movement and form.
