The Story of the Fortune Teller and the Flying Circus

Today I have a big treat for you – a stunning editorial from Chotronette named The Story of the Fortune Teller and the Flying Circus. I mean, the title alone is awesome and I think the photos live up and exceed the expectations such a cool name would suggest.

Chotronette is a Romanian brand that basically makes some of my dream dresses, it’s like the two talented girls behind it are seeing some of my fashion dreams and then make clothes out of them. Just like the photos, Chotronette is all about fantasy, colors and playfulness. The editorial is part of the campaign to advertise their 2011 Spring Summer collection. I love it and also happen to love Terry Gilliam and Stephen King.

For some reason I’m fascinated with the circus although I went only once when I was a little girl. But I read a lot of books about this subject, seen even more movies and TV shows on the matter and still believe “Carnivale” is one of the best shows ever made so hell yeah, girls, you and the team did an amazing job. 


Storyline: Flirting with magic at the verge of reality
Protagonist: The nomad burlesque fortune teller and the unseen magus of heart illusions (P.S. we've locked away the psychedelic clown)
Props and other disasters: the crystal globe, the fearless lion and the caffeine-overdosed-way-too-talkative French mime
Dress code: Rococo reloaded, Terry Gilliam-inspired hobo extravaganza
Soundtrack: Can't-get-out-of-your-head, obsessive carnival music with a Stephen King twist.

O.O Cat de genial! I just love the dresses, the styling, the poses, and the theme of course! Circuses have always fascinated me for some weird reason. Oh I am drooling on these images..
