    Not sure if this has been posted before.

    I lay awake last night wondering if it had been done. This thought actually entered my head - "maybe I could email Vivienne Westwood and get her to save film".
    Imagine this being a high street fashion? Then again, fashion is fleeting...

    My idea was to photograph different hues of colour, using them to create patterns on the dress (rather than random snapshots of cats or whatever). This would have perhaps been more interesting aesthetically and practical for those high street stores that want to churn out different designs and colours. This way, only on closer inspection would people see the rebate and realise - an interesting talking point.

    The subtlety was definitely lost with that design!

    So if you are buying something for your wife or girlfriend, do you ask if she wants small format, medium format or large format? :whistling:
