This gorgeous Glitterati Style File, featured in the Western & Vancouver edition of our new SF 2015 “Literary Love” issue, draws inspiration from the bestselling novel The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. The journey of finding one’s destiny while defining the meaning of true love is the core premise of the book and gave life to this luxe fashion-meets-style shoot. We couldn’t get enough of the beautiful Moroccan tile-inspired patterns woven throughout the editorial, from a stationery suite in hues of blue and white to a cake accented with delicate sugar flowers. The lush floral displays, gold decor, and designer gowns also stole our hearts —we love the photo of the model holding a ship sculpture in an Ines Di Santo lace creation so much that we featured it in our Toronto edition as well!
See the shoot come to life in this behind-the-scenes video from Life Studios Inc.
