Fashion - Examined from Every Angle

Clothing modeled by Heather Gehring

As a film maker and photographer myself, I know full well that something that looks beautiful from one angle can look ordinary from another. We looked through the Danskin sample rack and picked out some clothing that looked beautiful when held up to the light. We gave it the tactile test, and pulled at the seams. Everything passed. We next took this clothing - a halter leotard with convertible x-front string neckline, keyhole detail and shelf bra in whisper teal ($42.00, style 2173), a relaxed leg pant with hip fit and piped side contrast panels in concrete with red and white piping ($35.00, style 5771) and Microfiber footless tights ($12.50, style 711) - out into the street to photograph them from almost every possible angle.

Here Heather reaches forward.

Heather reaches upward.

Heather splits the difference between up and down.

Heather assumes an upside down V position. You can see the Microfiber tights peeking out from under the relaxed leg pants. Did your mother tell you to dress in layers on a chilly day? I know mine did.

Here is the upside down V seen from the side.

Heather prepares to take off. Fortunately, she has a wide wingspan and a long, unobstructed runway.

Stretch! From start to finish, beautiful!
