Art Deco Meets Art Nouveau
[As featured on Junebug]
While Art Deco has been quite a popular event design trend, we wanted to expand upon such well-known style of visual arts and integrate design components from a subsequent movement, Art Nouveau, a distinctive style that is often compared and discussed with Art Deco.
The Dorian in San Francisco provided the perfect setting that incorporated the retro opulence and extravagance for this photoshoot, and the rich teal color, gold accents and rich classic chocolate brown were the core colors. For floral and makeup, we applied a touch of that luscious and rich wine and burgundy to echo that lavish and glamorous overall feel. “While Art Deco features bold shapes like sunbursts and zigzags and broad curves, Art Nouveau focuses mainly on naturalistic elements in a stylized form.” The oufits selected showcased geometric design embodying Art Deco and more intricate and organic design implied Art Nouveau.
