The Final Project

Last Wednesday, our final photo shoot came to an end, completing in this way a challenging, but beautiful year.

During the whole academic year, our participation in many projects, like Fashion Wonderland and The Wizard of Oz, as well as many of our creations for the History of Costume class, and specifically for the designer Elsa Schiaparelli, came to the limelight when we decided to photograph some of them in portraits with our teacher Mr. Nicholas Georgiou. These portraits will be included in the magazine that we are going to publish with all of our projects from the Research to Realize a Concept class.

Of course, we saw some live action as our Photography teacher, Ms. Genevieve Majari, was the one who shot this project. Eight hours of fun and creativity went by very quickly, since for every object we had to think of the styling and the hair and makeup that will accompany the creation. Inspired makeup, impressive hair and original ideas, all three formed a unique concept for every photograph. Certainly, the big collection of magazines, which is provided by the school, proved to be very helpful. Enjoy the backstage!
