This photo reminds me of my days at FIT, draping on dress forms and learning how to make patterns and sewing my muslins. Sweet memories for sure.


Blogger MARIA H said ... (6:32 PM) : 

The contrast between the model and the designer is so interesting!

We can already see a different perceptual levels in this two persons: the beautiful object of desire and the creative mind behind it.

Beautiful image.


Blogger 'signorina' said ... (6:39 PM) : 

The Sartorialist does Vermeer! Beautiful lighting. (Not to mention draping on that dress.)


Blogger Q said ... (7:25 PM) : 

There's something about ateliers and studios that's so romantic and real. People often think of clothes as material things, but fashion really does ignite a sort of feeling like nothing else.

Great mood.

This is just a gorgeous photo. What I love most about your pictures is that you have this amazing ability to capture the personalities and stories of people you have just met in a single instant. Your blog inspires me every day to see the beauty of the world around me, so thank you.

beautiful shot! i love how the light comes through the window and highlights her face, beautiful hair, and a bit of pleating detail.

wonderful moment.



Blogger brando said ... (9:32 PM) : 

I really, really love this picture. Sure the composition is nice and the lighting is dramatic, but I love getting a glimpse into someone's daily routine that when caught on film is perfect. No screaching cabs, horrible subway smells- just a quiet scene where someone is doing something significant and in this case, beautiful.


Blogger mareGa said ... (10:18 PM) : 

Great shot. Love the light.


Blogger Pret a Porter P said ... (10:36 PM) :

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:39 AM) : 

love how the light is connected to the image...there's an intense, and at the same time gentle, it!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:41 AM) : 

the pleating on this white dress is quite it makes vertical panels down the front of the frock but suddenly transforms the sleeves into pleats of horizontal and diagonal lines...the lovely, orchid-like sleeves. the overall effect brings to mind a beautiful, white sail

OK, so what makes this such a compelling photograph? First, Sart really caught the dance of a moment -- one that was unposed and unselfconscious -- a bit hard to find in the fashion world.

Second, there is a wonderful combination of balance and tension in every aspect of this -- the light, the figures, their clothing, the room -- it really captures the concentration and work that lie behind the creative process.

The model has just stepped toward the designer, the designer leans slightly toward the model; both bear their weight on the left foot; both heads bent at the same angle, looking down at the same place. The two figures are about the same height, but the contrasts are interesting. One is blonde, frail and ethereal looking in the white dress and pointed boots and with her arms down she looks passive. The designer is brunette, the black tights and the belted cropped boots make her look firmly grounded and there is tension and focus in her posture. The model is by that soft northern light pouring in the window; the designer further into the shadows of the practical, plain studio, all of which heighten the contrasts.

A good photo requires that you see the moment, recognize it, and capture it, all in an instant. Sart nailed this one.


Blogger Susan B said ... (4:06 PM) : 

I love how the light plays in this shot! Very Vermeer indeed.


Blogger DK said ... (6:16 PM) : 

Look at the designer. The boots, the belt, that little skirt action. I dig it.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:16 PM) : 

this photo captures the exact mood i hoped for.

i am applying to antwerp in a few months.



Blogger Stratos Bacalis said ... (8:50 AM) : 

love the volume and draping of this dress...


Blogger Unknown said ... (9:52 AM) : 

Ah yes, Scott, this is a lovely photo... and it does romanticize a rather serene, creative mood in an "atelier" setting....however to convey the true reality of this business you must visit a "workroom" 24 hours before a show when everyone is running in high gear with adrenaline pumping and not a moment to spare as the deadline starts to close in...That is what separates the true masters from all others. That is the reality! Do you think you could capture some of those scenes???

Keep up the good work, you're the greatest!


Blogger Gudl said ... (12:59 PM) : 

This photo is very interesting because of the different lighting. It has the feel of a painting. Very cool!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:28 PM) : 



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:29 PM) : 

What a beautiful shot. I agree with Kathleen, this is a Vermeer picture. It seems to tell a very romantic story and in a way it is both old-fashioned yet timeless. Well done!


Blogger David Marc Fischer said ... (8:27 AM) : 

You say Vermeer.

I say Villers.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:44 PM) : 

What a beautiful photo; the fall of light, the shapes and muted tones. So lovely.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:15 AM) : 

is she preparing to be "mummified?"


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:06 AM) : 

i have saw this boots before!Sienna Miller has it!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:13 PM) : 

I agree that the evocative lighting in this shot really brings the moment you captured to life...great job! I am enjoying your photography so much...thank you for sharing.
