For all my info & links, see:
Somnia Romantica is a one person designer label based in The Netherlands, which creates historically inspired, (dark-) romantic fashion.
I love photoshoots, assembling a team to create something beautiful. I'm searching for cooperations with people who have affinity with romantic, nostalgic, high fashion or (dark) dreamy shoots. If you have an awesome idea, just contact me if you have an idea or if you just wish to work together, then we can see what the possibilities are!
On a practical note:
I live in The Netherlands. I can't travel worldwide, but (with a deposit) my clothes can!
I do this for a living, therefore I always have a limited stock available for shoots. Of course there is my shop if you're interested in purchasing a piece:
When I decide to participate on a TFP project but can't be there myself, this is how I work (I'm sorry I have to do this, it's out of self protection against those few out there!)
First you "purchase" the pieces for the amount I set (this is my warranty). I pay for shipment to you, assigned, with tracking, you pay for shipment back, again, assigned with tracking. When the pieces are received back in good order, I'll refund the whole amount! When an item comes back with unwashable filth or with damage, you'll get a reasonable partial refund.
Somnia Romantica sets high value on a good name within the creative world and good cooperations, I'm happy to say I never had to have anyone pay me for no returns or damages!
I'm Marjolein Turin from the Netherlands. After several projects in alternative fashion, Somnia Romantica was founded at the end of 2008. With my label Somnia Romantica I design and make garments and accessories for all facets of evening life, from alternative dance wear to stage outfits or evening dresses. The pieces are inspired by history, often based on authentic patterns, adjusted to own design. The purpose of the brand is to bring some nostalgia and dream scapes into modern society.
When working with me, you'll have a very dedicated team member. When a shoot idea really appeals to me, I'm always prepared to see if I have something for it. In some occasions I will design & make all new pieces. I will attend the shoot, but I'm also willing to send my pieces overseas for a great shoot.
So, what am I searching for?
I'm looking for people who are in for artistic projects in different styles. I love images that set a romantic, dark or dreamy mood. I'm not looking for any practical photos, for the product photos I use my dress form :)
Models: I'm open for many kinds of models of different length, ethnicity, age and size. I strongly prefer people who have affinity with styles like sotry telling, romantic, elegant, dark, enstranging, nostalgic, dreamy.
I'm looking for photographers who have experience with & love for these sort of styles: Dreamy, magical realism, surrealism, film noir, fin de siecle, dark atmosphere, gothic novel, high fashion with an alternative twist, art nouveau... I like pictures which seem to tell a story, but I also like a high fashion photo just for the sake of art!
MUA & hair: Can be everything from, from sweet and romantic, classic Victorian to high fashion, theatrical or dark and edgy. I always love to see the personal input from the makeup & hair artists.
