An ode to Alexander McQueen, elegance and limits, editorial styled, designed, shot and edited by Lary Rauh

How limits create freedom

Having designed this dress about a year ago, I only recently got what I think is it’s real meaning and also the aesthetic foundation for the accompanying editorial. During a similar time frame I concerned myself with Alexander McQueen’s works for the first time and still am blown away by the incredible legacy he’s left behind.

The Dragon Lady

This is the story of a dress. A dress I made way back in 2015 for our Drama Club’s play “Das Traumbuch” (engl.: “The Book of Dreams”). The character it accompanied was called Bandras, the evil sister of Lenaia — her good-willed antagonist. A villain literally causing nightmares as she travels through innocent people’s dreams, destroying anything positive crossing her way.

All White Impro

This is my  – one and only – all white look I submitted to the crispy clean gallery of the Parsons x Teen Vogue program that I enrolled to last summer. As someone who constantly drops food (not intentionally, I’m not a monster) white clothing doesn’t really pay off, which is why roughly 80% of my wardrobe has shifted into a black abyss focusing rather on the variety of shapes and textures.

Not so simple simplicity

Just quickly stopping by to share a few street style pics I took with c-roe photography a couple of days ago!

Personified unconcern

In between loads and loads of exams (because festive season isn’t stressful enough as is) I finally came around to sit down in front of my beloved, dying laptop to give you and my future self a little update.

Curved Neoprene

As I’m sitting in front of my PC, thinking about what to write after an almost month-long absence, I notice that much, but at the same time nothing, has happened in September.

Uniformed

Although the heatwave hasn’t nearly ceased, I kept my word and ventured out my dimmed room – where I’ve spent the last few weeks tanning in front of my PC – in order to shoot this fierce editorial with my friend Celine (the one, who went to NYC with me).

Red Ribbon Dress

Why it took me four months to sew a giant ribbon onto two layers of fabric? Read on.

“off-the-shoulder”

As I was recently trying on outfits I couldshoot for a Laryconic editorial, I discovered how uncomfortable wearing clothes the ‘fashion-magazine’-kinda – only halfway dressed –  way could be. Plus: Badass eyeshadow game and pointless Lary-banter.

All yellowed out

»All yellowed out«. A phrase, once mentioned in one of the comments by a reader, whose comments and opinions I really appreciate, since they always seem to be so unique and carefully crafted, not just the common »Amazing!«. Since the day I read that comment, about a year ago, I couldn’t get it out of my head.

Friendships

»It’s virtually alive and of indefinable size.«

That’s what I told my best friend when she asked me about the birthday gift I’m going to get her.

Costume Magic

Here I’m presenting you a dress, which functioned as a costume for the play of our schools Drama Club, last summer.
