Halloween spookiness

It's Halloween tonight, the night of trick-or-treating, of ghouls and
ghosts, of pumpkins and witches, goblins and trolls so let's make
a start on it with Dina Lynnyk's 'Creepy Kids'  that smartly shows
how we'll look tomorrow before the first cup of morning coffee.
Jokes aside, it's riveting the way Dina built up her blood-curdling
photo shoot: she actually conceived and directed it, styling with
Maria Migotina and working by herself on post production 
while photographer Roma Pashkovskiy smartly 
accentuates its heebie-jeebies.

Dina is a young fashion designer and illustrator based in Kiev
that soon after her graduation from the National University of
Design and Technology started her career in fashion and
was awarded the Harper's Bazaar Fashion Forward in 2011,
a project aimed at supporting young Ukrainian fashion talents
while putting the country's industry on the world map.
She made a name for herself through surreal fashion collages
and interesting collections under the label 'It's me by Dina
Lynnyk' showcased at Mercedes-Benz Kiev fashion week.

Dina skillfully combined pieces from Jil Sander, compatriots
Anna October, RCR Khomenko and Bevza, D&G, Balenciaga
and Vivienne Westwood to name a few, succeeding in putting
them on the background because what we notice at a glance
are the ghostly white eyes and the colorless complexion of the
zombielike models (hair and make up are by Helen Khodos).
Have a frightful night, happy Halloween!
