Avantgarde: About Couture

Usually I like fashion editorials with a story but I was pleasant impressed by these pictures from Avantgarde magazine featuring fresh face Dutch model Valerie Van der Graaf from SPS Model Management Amsterdam. She recently joined Viva Models - Paris so we'll be seing more of her. These pictures have something wintry about them without showing any cold weather décor or fashion (like fur or knits). Instead they make a short trench and a pair of slim jeans (7 For All Mankind) look very couture by teaming them with the wonderfully crafted Jan Taminiau corset top/mini dress and shoes.

Model: Valerie Van der Graaf

Magazine: Avantgarde Magazine (The Netherlands)

Photographer: Bram Spaan
