Samurai – Geisha


Photographer: Mihai Boar
Model, MUA and Hair: Bertoldi Olivia
Styling: Agatha Vornicu

Project that I did for my university portfolio. I was inspired both by the samurai and the geisha culture and wanted to take elements from both of them and add them onto a single model, which would give (hopefully) the impression of a geisha warrior. (Which, arguably, would create a more feminist idea of a geisha and her role in the japanese historical and cultural background.) We didn’t have a budget, but luckly I already had the kimonos and an original katana.
