    Thank you, everyone, for their contributions. Let's try for better pictures though - some of them are still not up to par. Please reread the posting guidelines.

    Also, to improve searchability, we should standardise keywords, for example:
    Mens/Womens v Men/Women v Men's/Women's
    Spring/Summer v Spring v S/S v SS
    Year of collection in 2 or 4 digit format, etc...

    I will not know/remember information from every piece I expect to post. Please send along information if you happen to know something I don't re: the garment.

    Thanks in advance,

    I think some extravagant pieces (like the Balenciaga dress MBD just posted) really need a fit pic to be properly understood.

    I can replace one image with a runway shot, but you'll miss out on details I captured of the interior lining...I'll try it for now.

    Thanks,

    That's easy for me to correct if you need assistance.

    Thanks for the comment. I've been into photography for a few years and found out lighting, real and artificial, is my favorite discipline. In a nutshell, I've been playing around with studio and location lighting for a while and although I don't have a studio set up in my place anymore, I pulled a fairly simple setup to take the pics I submitted for the archive.



    Dark seamless paper was used for the background but since my subjects were dark as well, the trick is the positioning of my lighting source. I used a single flash mounted on a stand to the right of my camera with a reflective umbrella. This is called a key light, which I diffused with the umbrella to provide a more accurate representation of the garment and its details. On the left side of the garment (from the photographer's perspective), I used a cheap reflector to act as a secondary light source as the light fired from the flash would hit the reflector and spill onto the garment. This is called a fill light.

    The combination of the flash and the reflector are necessary to separate the dark garment from the dark background. Again, diffusion of the light by the umbrella is meant to lessen the amount and harshness of shadows. Apart from the camera and the flash, the rest of the setup can be acquired inexpensively and do-it-yourself alternatives can substituted in. Another method of producing even lighting is to wait for a sunny day and drawing a thin white curtain.

    Minor detail regarding the CCP thread title. I see all threads named "X Archive' except for the CCP one.

    yeah, the fabric care tag is always(?) in the inside pockets on his jackets. There you would also find the item code if you feel like posting that. Sorry for being anal, but since this is an archive, that pocket jacket is from the spring 2008 season (first look on the runway).
