Vogue Taiwan shows, that fashion scene has discovered roller skating.
Roller skating is more than anything elegant movement of the body. Perfect for accentuation of fashion. Roller skating has taken the fashion industry already by storm, and skaters pay careful attention to their outfit.
Come on, vogue, let your body move to the musicMadonna
So it comes as little surprise that photographer Danilo Hess selected the Hot Skates roller rink in New York as the scenery for a shooting for the August 2018 issue of Vogue Taiwan. The result is beautiful photos of evening wardrobe in contrast to the more leisure-oriented ambience in a roller rink. All pictures can be viewed on the photographer’s Homepage or here. Models were Aleyna Fitzgerald, Isabella Ridolfi and Natalie Ludwig.
Starting from the assumption, that Hess’ models cannot really skate, the designer Cynthia Rowley approached the roller skating theme in her show at the New York fashion week in September more genuinely. She replaced the typically restrained runway models with roller skating women. The models rolled in the street and over the catwalk in the designer’s West Village office.
Roller skating does not match any longer only daisy dukes, stretchy tank tops, and tube socks.
