Daisy van Knotsenburg is a young photographer from The Netherlands. She lives and works in Den-haag. She has been interested in photography since childhood but made her profession out of it over the past two years. She didn’t study photography but learnt through practice and by constantly challenging herself with new techniques and concepts, and is still very excited to learn more and more.
Photography for Daisy is a way of exposing the beautiful things in life; by making something beautiful out of nothing, or by collaborating with a team of talented people like designers, makeup artists and stylists to create that perfect image. She loves to try out new things like working with different kinds of background colors, and her style is predominantly refreshing, colorful, tough, and young.
This look book-fashion shoot is collaboration between Daisy and fashion designer Ilona Putkaradze. They are both young, talented ladies living in Den-Haag and have worked together to support each other’s talents.
The collection by Ilona is called: ‘From sculpture to body’.
Ilona has Georgian roots, born in Germany and now lives in The Netherlands, having studied fashion design at Willen de Koning Academy. During her graduation period she was been chosen as one of the most promising talents and was therefore able to showcase her collection at the Amsterdam Fashion Week 2012. She was also nominated for a ‘starter’s award’ for best collection and concept at the academy.
The collection is inspired by sculptures from Jacques Lipchits from 1919. In this collection she used fabrics such as silk, linen, knitwear and felt. The accessories in the photos are made by Ilona herself. The rings and bracelets are silver, elegant and refined. The masks showing the anonymous woman in this collection are sewn by hand and are decorated with sparkling Swarovski. This provides the masks with sheer elegance and finishes off the collection.
