In fashion industry there is known two different relationships between the runway and the streetstop down and bottom up! From which the first means that the designs from the catwalks on the fashion weeks strongly and clearly influence what trends reach the high street stores and can be seen on the streets! The second, of course, works vice versa and means that designers get inspired by interesting ideas that fashionable, creative and stylish people wear on the streets.

For a seasonal trend it usually has been either a journey from top down or bottom up, but for trends that often come back over he seasons, such as the bomber jacket, those two work together!

About the Author:

A fashion photographer from Estonia who is taking BA degree studies in Southampton Solent University, United Kingdom. Currently based in Lisbon, Portugal.
Fashion and photography have always been a great passion of mine, which is why, after a short period of art and photography studies in Odder, Denmark, I decided to commit myself to a BA degree in fashion photography to grow as an artist, improve the technical skills and deeply understand the behind the scene of fashion industry.
Curious and adventurous personality allows me to explore fashion photography from different angles. I enjoy working in the studio and outdoors, creating a different narrative and look each time. Until now, I also styled and directed on hair and make-up on the shoots. The outcome is always edited and retouched by me. I am also interested in graphic design and take a great pleasure combining these two fields that are so strongly connected.
