Dreaming the unimaginable, and creating the unexpected
Clive Arrowsmith, a celebrated international photographer, known for his celebrity and fashion imagery worked for several months for the preparation of the shoot.
The costume designs were a result of over one hundred drawings and dozens of samples carefully chosen to provide strong visual support of the story, concept and context of the collection. It is vital that the costumes reflect the visual style of the production and help portray the fantasy characters against the backdrop of Sharjah’s landscape.
The Al Majaz Amphitheatre Island was chosen as the location for the shoot because the backdrop showed the beautiful Islamic architecture of the Al Noor Mosque with its 34 elegant cascading domes and the ultra-modern polygonal architecture of the Butterfly Pavilion is an artificial eco-system and its rainforest biotope.
The Fantasia collection by Clive Arrowsmith was shot and produced in Sharjah, the United Arab Emirates, especially for Xposure.
