Modern Femininity – from Élan Vital Workshop


Élan Vital Workshop and Amelia Soegijono Photography teamed up to design a modern and edgy wedding shoot inspired by the beautiful Audrey Hepburn. They chose a light and dark contrast in shades of blush and black with gorgeous blooms and pops of red. 

Reminiscent of Vogue in the 1950s, this shoot adds a chic modern twist that's a beautiful tribute to Miss style icon herself,  Audrey Hepburn.  For the contemporary and timeless bride-to-be, see all the highlights below and in the full gallery.

From Élan Vital

This was a bridal shoot which we designed for Élan Vital Workshop, a fine art photography workshop we hosted with Amelia Soegijono Photography. Our muse, Audrey Hepburn, was not only a style icon of elegance she was also the woman who successfully turned her gamine character into her strength. Through this shoot beautifully captured by Amelia, we are telling a story of a woman who embodies confidence and independence when facing the rest of the world, but who also has this other side that is mischievous and sweet when she is around the love of her life.

the fashion

For her first look, we integrated elements from Audrey Hepburn’s character in Breakfast at Tiffany's and bridal fashion. The contrast between black and white was adopted to emphasize her edge, yet in a timeless and feminine manner. The second look, however, was designed around her femininity and romance. The dress, hair & makeup, and accessories were conceptualized to showcase that of a contemporary, trendy woman. Both dresses got the clean and simple silhouette, elegant and classic, but they each have thoughtful details that speak this forward-thinking, fashion-conscious character.

Paper design, flowers and dessert all beautifully utilized a combination of light and dark colors, hard and soft lines, and modern and classic designs.

This was a story of modern femininity, and how we celebrated the legacy of Audrey Hepburn, who has just been hailed as the most iconic fashion innovator of the last 100 years.
