Client: Puyan Saheb Djavaher
Puyan Saheb Djavaher creates handmade gowns and unique clothing for special occasions. In her Berlin-based studio, Saheb Djavaher and her team collaborate with a wide range of craftspeople to realize technically challenging designs. Her appreciation for manual artistic labour drives her to continuously discover long-standing traditions from different cultural regions and bring those back to life in her joyful, yet elegant and timeless pieces.
It was a joy to shoot the new collection of the wonderful Puyan Saheb Djavaher. I was inspired by late Renaissance and Baroque painters of the 16th and 17th centuries who utilized bold, dramatic contrast between light and dark called Chiaroscuro.
