Cecilie Bahnsen invited good friend Fumiko Imano to bring the re imagined Amalie Dress into her own do-it-yourself universe, with the use of her photography, glue and scissors. The photo series is Imano’s reenactment of Cecilie Bahnsen’s book “Tokyo Trance”. Photographed in Roppongi Hills, the scene is set as a fashion reportage where Imano’s twins come into play. The lively and spirited colours, movement and shapes of the dresses come to a life of their own through Fumiko’s lens. “I simply love Cecilie’s clothes because its feminine but not too sweet.” In addition to the campaign, a photo book has been composed, pulling the collaboration together in a physical form. Fumiko Imano is a photographer and artist, known for her self-portraits. Her personal work reflects matters of identity and its relation to multi-culturalism as well as unassuming notes on the preservation of youth within. She holds a degree in Fine Arts from Central Saint Martins and Photography from London College of Fashion. She combines self-portraiture and fashion photography in her work and has been published in the most renowned magazines around the world.
